Lifetime Achievement Award for Merrill J Fernando
Tea Inspired Gastronomy ended with much heart today. After the presentation by long-time partner Dilmah, Worldchefs presented Mr Merrill Fernando, the founder of the family-owned Ceylon tea company with a special Lifetime Achievement award. Known for his unique philosophy of “business is a matter of human service”, Mr Fernando has built humanitarian work into the global business Dilmah. Other than the MJF Foundation, which has built a culinary centre to empower the less privileged, Dilmah also starts from home – by ensuring that their tea pickers are well-taken care of, and not marginalised.
