This leading position has been built through enterprise, endeavour, resilience and the seamless passing of knowledge and skill from one generation to the next.


Today we are one of the few leading international suppliers and processors of tea. Our Global network currently consists of 12 offices world-wide with exclusive representations in key producing countries. The supply of any tea from any origin to both private and public sectors in many consuming countries has made our name well known and synonymous with success and reliability in the tea industry.
