Traders, big and small, dominate the tea industry now Under their control, tea became an ordinary commodity, denying growers of quality tea a fair return depriving consumers of the quality they enjoyed some years ago. Dilmah is the only global brand owned by tea growers. Dilmah is ethically produced & supplied direct to supermarkets around the world. By supplying direct profits are retained in Sri Lanka and are shared with workers, the wider community & reinvested in making tea a sustainable industry. Adding value at origin is the fairest trade of all.
