Goodness in Your Cup of Tea
Dilmah is unique; a brand that is founded on a passionate commitment to quality and authenticity in tea, it is also part of a philosophy that goes beyond commerce in seeing business as a matter of human service. This is what makes Dilmah the first ethically produced tea. In 2005, Merrill and his sons Dilhan and Malik, pledged to follow the principles dictated by the 12 Principles of Dilmah in every aspect of their business and in the conduct of their workers, staff and management.
Dilmah Founder Merrill J. Fernando had a unique vision – he wanted to offer consumers the finest tea on earth and to do so with ethics and integrity. That pledge is fulfilled in our commitment to garden fresh, unblended tea. We pride ourselves in manufacturing the finest Ceylon tea in the world. Our Founder’s intention to make his tea ethical is honoured in the work of his MJF Charitable Foundation and Dilmah Conservation. In making our business a matter of human service, the natural goodness in every cup of Dilmah is extended by the positive humanitarian and environmental impact Dilmah has on communities and ecosystems.
