As a part of its diversification plans, KPL acquired the Avongrove Tea Estate located near Darjeeling in the state of West Bengal. Apart from being certified as an organic tea estate under US Department of Agriculture (USA), Japanese Agricultural Standards (Japan) and National Programme for Organic Production (India & the EU), this business segment also received the Certificate of Fairtrade from Flo-CertGmbH, Germany for conformation to labour and trade standards.
Another area of focus for the Company in recent years has been on the renewable energy sector. It presently has a generation capacity of 5.45 MW wind turbine electrical power. In an associated area, KPL acquired a company engaged in Solar Energy related consultancy and training, which is now KPL’s Knowledge Services Division.
