Ethical tea sourcing? Optimising your tea manufacturing? Starting a tea business? Introducing a new tea offering at your cafe, hotel, restaurant ? Marketing your bulk teas from origin? Tea smallholder project? Whatever your challenge or project, if it involves tea, we can help.
Having been in the mainstream global tea industry since the 1980's I have learned a few things about the industry. From "bush to cup", having spent 7 years working in the tea plantation sector, and many more years at the downstream end of the tea supply chain.
I was fortunate in having the opportunity to work for arguably the leading practitioners in the various sectors of tea:
- Unilever - the world's leading branded tea packer (Lipton, Brooke Bond, T2, Sariwangi to name a few of its brands);
- Martin Bauer Gmbh - the world's leading herbal, extract and decaffeinated supplier and processor;
- Harris Freeman Inc - owner of Harris Tea in the USA and Keith Spicer in the UK. The world's leading tea co-packer;
- Rwanda Mountain Tea Sarl and Brooke Bond East Africa - the former produces the best CTC tea in the world, and the latter is arguably the most progressive on a CSR and sustainability level.
I have been exposed to best practice, and I have been privileged to work with the best in class and thought leaders in their field. Needless to say I can draw upon these experiences and lessons, and together with my own insights, I can help you find solutions to your tea business challenges. Or indeed help you as a first timer enter the tea world.
