Message from founder

On the 6th of May 2022, our Founder Merrill J Fernando, dedicated the birthplace of Dilmah for The Genesis Project (TGP).

“This is hallowed ground, where from 1979 I was blessed by God, with the realization of my dream – the first producer owned and genuinely ethical tea brand in the world. The birth of Dilmah – which I conceived in faith, tasted, crafted and first dispatched from here, 52 Maligawatte Road in 1985 – also marked the birth of a Cup of Kindness. The kindness to People and Nature that is embedded in the heart of my beloved Dilmah Tea, must continue to flow in abundance because it is an irrevocable obligation of every business to be kind. I therefore dedicate this North Wing to serving humanity through the Genesis Project, which will collaboratively explore Nature-based Solutions for a more sustainable future for Sri Lanka, her youth and her life enhancing biodiversity.” – MERRILL J. FERNANDO
