About The Kimel Estate (From Royal New York):
The Kimel plantation was established in 1974 by an Australian, Bobby Gibbs; it is now owned by traditional landowners, the Opais being the main tribe. There are 432 producers living on the estate. The estate provides schooling for children and medical facilities for the workforce and their dependents. Clean running water has been made available to the estate workers by way of a community project and its implementation is overseen by the estate’s management. Since the estate is located along the Kimel river, from which it derived its name, it has access to good clean water for the processing of its crop. The estate’s management also implements some ecology friendly policies with regard to environmental issues, such as the recycling of pulp and water used during the wet processing.
