Dilmah Founder, Merrill J. Fernando "had a vision; to one day develop his own brand of pure Ceylon tea and deliver to the consumer a genuine pure Ceylon tea of quality, at a reasonable price, and also to make life better for the less affluent of the country with the profits. However, at his time, his dream was considered an impossible one, a fantasy even, but Fernando persevered. After four long decades of hard work, he managed to deliver on that promise."
