Successful visit to China -- Khoisan Tea exhibits at FHC CHINA 2015

From 11-13 November this year we met with present and potential clients at the annual FHC China 2015 – Coffee and Tea Expo in Pudong, Shanghai.  “We had a welcoming stand at the modern, large Shanghai New International Exhibition Centre and found the expo most valuable.  Visitors to our booth tried our various Rooibos Teas with positive feedback and much new-gained interest,” says Berit Elmau, International Sales. 

Over 2,000 international exhibitors were present and well over 66,000 visitors attended the expo. "It was an excellent venue to showcase Khoisan Rooibos Tea and South Africa. Many people were fascinated by the way Rooibos Tea looks and tastes. It was all very exciting to see so much opportunity,"  adds Rachel, on behalf of a Khoisan Tea buyer in Shanghai and assistant at the stand.

Fine Food Australia reaps good results

We introduced our many pre-packaged Khoisan Tea ranges in Sydney in late September 2015. 

Most popular was our brand new range of organic Ginger, Cinnamon and Liquorice extracts and bakery range powders due to their novelty and great taste. “Australia is such a modern market and a great place to launch new South African products. The visitors to our booth were impressed with our product ideas and quality packaging,” said Leigh Ramsay shortly after the well-visited exhibition. 

Sweden & Finland grow Khoisan Tea ranges

At the Nordic Organic Food Fair in Malmö, Sweden in early November this year, we welcomed the invitation to meet with our distributors’ many clients. V-Sell Ekologiska Produkter AB hosted a multi-faceted stand and Khoisan Tea had the opportunity to showcase its Rooibos Tea & Speciality Tea ranges and new bakery items among other V-Sell suppliers. V-Sell’s Klara Lindström and KRAV-representative Roger Alm posed for this photo and also spoke with visitors to the stand. V-Sell handed out goodie bags with tasty Khoisan samplers of organic Rooibos Chai, organic Green Rooibos and organic Strawberry Cream teas, among others.  

On the road in South Africa

For years we have been transporting our Rooibos Tea from farms in the Cederberg region without too much fuss in terms of marketing or branding. Now, we are changing this and Khoisan Tea Rooibos can be spotted miles away! Our truck is now a most visible and popular feature on the N7 to and from Clanwilliam, aka Rooibos country. It’s Khoisan Rooibos in motion ….

We support Movember, moustaches for all!

(left) Movember is an internationally held event every year during November to raise awareness of various cancers, particularly testicular cancers. The aim is to get men involved in this effort to prevent such cancers. Our team fully supported the campaign and Khoisan Tea made a financial contribution to the Men's Foundation of South Africa. 

Happy holidays ….and a wonderful 2016!  

As we come to the close of a tough but successful business year, we want to thank our many valued clients. While  our established clients continued  to work closely with us to grow their businesses, newer clients are giving us an opportunity to stretch our international reach with a variety of Khoisan Tea products. We thank you for your support and we look forward to providing our best service in the New Year!

May you all have a happy festive season.
We wish all of our clients the very best for 2016.
