According to a report by The Star newspaper, Merali's new processing plant will be set up on a 20-acre farm next to some coffee mills it owns in Kiambu county. The location is proposed for a Special Economic Zone, a protectionist area where manufacturers benefit from incentives such as tax holidays, and which is close to Sasini's coffee mill in Kiambu.
Merali says that Sasini, which is listed on the Nairobi Stock Exchange, will inter-plant macadamia with its coffee bushes at calculated spacing so that the two can thrive together without needing additional land.
"This is being planted at desirable spacing which will not compromise on coffee production. We anticipate to generate a further Sh300,000 ($3,000) per hectare from this venture within the coming six years when we shall be at optimal production of macadamia nuts," Merali said in a press statement.
Sasini Limited is one of Kenya's largest coffee producers. The company grows coffee on eight independent estates in the central highland of Kenya covering a total of 912 Hectares. It has a market capitalization of $41 million and Merali owns a little over 51% of the company through investment holding companies and family trusts.
Naushad Merali, 65, is the founder of Sameer Group, a Kenyan conglomerate that has interests in financial services, property, agriculture and offshoring.
