Ariston is Soaring

Harare – Diversified agricultural concern, Ariston Holdings Limited, says it is divesting to short rotation crops to increase revenue.
Group CEO Dr. Anxious Masuka told delegates to the Imara Investing in Africa Conference in Harare that the farming company was poised for “exponential growth”. Ariston grows and markets tea, bananas, potatoes, macadamia nuts and apples. Its tea leaves from plantations in Zimbabwe’s Eastern Highlands make the world renowned “Tetley” tea brand, among others.
Dr. Masuka said the move to short rotation crops was part of the company’s efforts to increase revenue. As part of such efforts, the company is expected to produce 13 000 tonnes of potatoes by 2015.
