Tatu city will create its own coffee brand
Quote:
http://www.nation.co.ke/Features/sma...z/-/index.html
The management of Tatu City is developing a coffee value addition programme through its subsidiary, Kofinaf. It aims to tap into a growing coffee drinking culture among Kenyas middle class.


In a communication to Smart Company, Kofinaf general manager Fabian Philippart said plans were underway to partner with Tatu City to develop customised, branded coffee products targeted at the local market.

The move will see Tatu join the league of Sasini, Dorman, and Java, who blend and market their own coffee and retail it through coffee shops. The middle class is booming in Kenya and their habits are changing. The move will open the market wider for consumption of coffee, he said.

Kofinaf produces about 9 per cent of Kenyas coffee and mills about 30 per cent of the product. Mr Philippart said the planned partnership with Tatu City would include coffee shops as well as ground and roasted coffee for local consumption.

Kofinaf owns seven plantations in Thika and Juja areas, including the Tatu Estate in Kiambu. In 2008, investors seeking to build a satellite city to Nairobi in Kiambu acquired Kofinaf in a Sh7.6 billion deal.

Kofinaf then sold part of Tatu Estate to the group of investors led by Russian bank Renaissance Capital to build the proposed 1,000 hectare Tatu City. Kofinaf retained its holding of more than 4,000 hectares of land surrounding the planned development.

In the year ending March 2012, 3653 tonnes of coffee were produced by Kofinaf in its various estates, with 193 tonnes coming from Tatu Estate. Mr Philippart said the firm expects to raise coffee production to 400 tonnes.

A growing middle class in emerging markets is expected to buoy coffee prices over the next 10 years. Demand from Brazil, India and China is on the rise.

Did you guys know that there would be a megamall (Mall of Kenya) planned for Tatu City too? It's in the first Phase (1A), and from the looks of it I'm thinking it'll definitely be the largest mall in Kenya if it's built.

I was right:

The Tatu City vision – facts and figures: http://www.tatucity.com/MediaCentre/...ils.aspx?id=98

The Mall of Kenya, the planned shopping experience at Tatu City, will be the largest leisure and retail centre in East Africa, and will pay tribute to Kenya’s coffee growing traditions.

I'll look forward to seeing that in the flesh.

That plan looks like a world-class size mall.

Good news.

Tatu City eyes Sh20bn tax refund on infrastructure
http://www.businessdailyafrica.com/T...6/-/index.html
Quote:
Developers of the Tatu City commercial and residential estate are targeting tax refunds of up to Sh20 billion that they intend to spend on building roads, sewerage systems, power lines and supplying water to tenants.

The developers are basing their refund estimates on a new law proposed by Finance minister Njeru Githae, which will authorise the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) to allow builders of social infrastructure to claim tax deductions equivalent to amounts spent in four years.

Approximately 30 per cent of the total (Sh64.5 billion) cost in the first phase is on public infrastructure, said the firm in a statement.

Our objective is to develop the infrastructure system like roads, water and sewerage system and we think this qualifies for tax rebates under the plan, added the firm.

It's a wrap!

Tatu City shareholders set for long court battle


Quote:
Wrangling shareholders of real estate company Tatu City have set the stage for a bruising court battle after rejecting efforts to find a deal outside court. Minority shareholders Stephen Mwagiru, Rosemary Wanja and Anne Walker, and majority shareholders Vimal Shah, Josphat Kinyua and Nahashon Nyaga have rejected efforts to have a dispute over Tatu City solved out of court, and have opted for a court battle, according to Justice Daniel Musinga.
