Founder of Dilmah

Welcome to a new world of tea. We are a family tea company, founded on a passion and lifetime devoted to tea. Together with my sons Malik and Dilhan we share our love for tea with tea aficionados around the world.

In the 1950s I set out to offer tea drinkers the finest tea on earth whilst ensuring a genuinely ethical brand. It took me nearly four decades to fulfil my mission, but in 1988 I launched my family tea – Dilmah – the first producer owned tea brand in the world, handpicked, perfected and packed at source and shipped within days to tea drinkers around the world. This ensures that Dilmah tea is the freshest, brimming with antioxidants.

Dilmah is founded on a unique philosophy of making business a matter of human service. We believe in giving back to the community and the MJF Charitable Foundation is founded on this basis. We also believe that the environment is an inextricable part of our lives and Dilmah Conservation encourages the harmonious coexistence of man and nature with a core commitment to sustainability.
