Shangrilla Agro World
KTE

Shangrila Agro World (SAW) was established as the marketing wing of KTE to allow KTE to concentrate on quality production. It has been duly certified as the sole marketing division for KTE's product by NASAA. Shangrila consists of a team of committed and enthusiastic entrepreneurs with decades of experience behind them. The aim of this marketing team is to promote the sales of organic tea and other organic agro products produced by small farmers in the remote areas of Nepal. Simply, SAW strives to bring the pure plants of the inaccessible remote villages of Nepal to the rest of the world, thereby giving the developed world a second chance to experience truly organic products from the pristine, virgin soils of Nepal. This is a business with a difference, a venture that ties its success with the upliftment of the poor and needy.Shangrila strives to help these rural farmers to compete in the global market and helps them to be self-employed in their own fields, thereby benefiting these people without depriving them of their self respect and dignity."


With the rise in KTE’s production and the aim to increase it’s customer range, Shangrila Agro World has recently opened two other branch offices in Birtamod and Phidim.

Establishing a market brand worldwide is what Shangrila strives for on behalf of KTE. With the creation of successful markets in Japan, North Korea, Germany, Australia, India etc. Shangrila has been exploring niche markets for KTE’s eco-friendly products, especially for the health and environmentally conscious customers in the EU,USA, Canada, China and South Korea. Members of the World Fair Trade Organization, chain stores that specialize in tea and bio-products with our brand are given top priority.


Research, experimentation, and innovation is where KTE sets it’s ground rules in production and food purity, whereas Shangrila ensures customer satisfaction in marketing. It is this co-ordination that has helped us to create a variety of unique blend of teas. Not just hearsay, but Shangrila truly places customers as their top priority. Be it a new blend of tea never experimented before or, packet designed in completely different language, SAW has not failed to meet the requirements and demands of its customers. SAW usually accepts a minimum order of 100 kgs which is delivered by air cargo. However, larger quantities (i.e. 4000kg and above or a container) are usually supplied via Kolkata port.


The unique character of KTE’s tea comes from its comparatively low content of caffeine and significantly higher composition of Linalool Methyllsalcylate (flavouring compounds). Tea experts believe that such character exists due to its unique geographical location and virginity of soil. Due to its unique character, KTE tea has also found its way into Harrods, the renowned establishment in the United Kingdom. Since the original taste of KTE’s tea is in it’s freshness, hence the necessity to store the tea in air tight containers.

Shangrila Agro World, KTE’s marketing office in Kathmandu, is also the final packaging center. The bulk packed Nepal Organic Tea is transported to Sangrila Agro World at regular intervals and the final packing is done here in the head office. Well facilitated stores serve to maintain the quality of the product until distribution. The packing unit consists of mostly women headed by a packaging supervisor.


Along with the packaging unit, Shangrila Agro World also owns a tea bagging unit headed by two highly talented and experienced machine operators, Shiva and Indra Chaudhary. The tea bagging unit produces around 1,50,000 tea bags a day.


HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) plan and Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) are strictly followed at the packaging facilities and the tea bagging unit for Quality Control and Food Safety Measures. Apron, mask, mobcap and special slippers are a must for the workers in the packaging unit.

What would the staffs of every company/organization do before going for lunch? The common answer is that they would probably hurry to finish off their task. But here at SAW, the story is completely different. When the clock strikes 1:30 in the afternoon (30 minutes before lunch), everyone, from the C.E.O to the cleaning staff, gather at the packaging room, place their carpets and start a 20 minutes long journey of transcending their thoughts: they practice Transcendental Meditation (TM).


It is a common misconception that people believe meditation is concentration. It may be in some other forms but not in Transcendental Meditation. TM can be best described as “restful alertness”; a state of complete relaxation with a conscious mind. It is proven that during 20 minutes of Transcendental Meditation the metabolic rate of the body is reduced by 16% which is 2% more than what is reduced during the same number of hours of sleep. TM is absolutely fulfilling in the aspects of physical, mental and spiritual health.


In the busy schedules of the day, each and every staff practicing 20 minutes of TM has proved to be beneficial in many ways. The people are calm and relaxed throughout the day and are in better working condition which has yielded a better working efficiency. A peaceful environment is created in the office. Dealing with every other department (top level to low level management and the workers) has been found to be harmonious. Hence, a better co-ordination has achieved in the office environment. Most importantly, a higher level of personal development has been observed in every staff, be it physically, mentally or spiritually.
