Dilmah is ethical tea, which is a more dignified take of Fair Trade. It means that the people who supply the natural resources have equal opportunity to keep the valorisation of the raw material in their own country. Providing self-determination the people of the former colonies can take stewardship and push their own sustainability agenda. Fair Trade monetizes on the unfair power relations built in the colonial rule. Although it's a step forward, it has no interest in equanimity. That is why Mr. Fernando started Dilmah. To prove what happens when an 'indigenous farmer' is taken seriously and allowed to pack and market his own fully-fledged product. The lucrative links (packaging, brand development and marketing) and the additional employment remain in the country of origin, so that tax is paid on them as well. The entire production process is sustainable, because they have skin in the game for long-term results. The entire country benefits from this. Above all, they are given the dignity of doing good for others. Read an interview with our CEO Dilhan published in 2014.
