Sustainability Around the World #5: Business as a matter of human service

Date: August 11, 2020
Time: 12:00 AM - 12:00 AM CET UTC+02
Location: Paris, Global / Online Event

On this episode of Worldchefs’ webcast series Sustainability Around the World, Feed the Planet’s Chris Koetke talks with Dilhan C. Fernando, CEO of Dilmah Tea on his family company’s principle – Business as a matter of human service.

Mirroring his father’s devotion to tea, Dilhan’s commitment was to resist the commoditization that devastated a tea industry that was previously characterized by small, and passionate family enterprises. The Fernando family sought to bring quality and authenticity back to tea, and secondly, whilst doing so, to share the success of that business with the underprivileged. 

The MJF Charitable Foundation and Dilmah Conservation utilise revenue from the global sales of Dilmah in implementing humanitarian and conservation projects in Sri Lanka. The MJF Foundation is one of the largest charitable foundations in Sri Lanka and has changed the lives of thousands of underprivileged people, working in the tea sector and in the wider community. Dilmah Conservation operates on a similar principle, using revenue from Dilmah to implement conservation, environmental education, habitat restoration projects and promote sustainability.

Discover how Dilhan and his team at Dilmah Tea use their success to support the local community and the planet.
