This was a great turning point in its adventure of growth and diversification as Sasini PLC is indisputably one of the oldest firms in Kenya to be listed on the Nairobi Securities Exchange. In the true spirit of an adventurous pioneer, Sasini PLC realised that Agricultural risks are best managed through product diversification. It was in this spirit that Sasini PLC entered the Tea sub-sector by acquiring a significant stake in its first Tea operation known as Kipkebe Ltd in the western side of the great Rift Valley region of Kenya in 1964.
