In the land of Ceylon tea, Sri Lanka, Merrill J. Fernando takes a humble approach to cultivating and selling his herbal product. The 86-year-old founder and chairman of MJF Group has built a successful enterprise by globalizing Ceylon tea, and he channels the profits back to his country.
"Tea was a blessed divine herb in China, but through global business was turned into a material commodity by profit-driven companies " he told The Korea Herald last week. "I take pride in bringing integrity, freshness and quality to our customers with our tea. Of 100 percent single origin, it is grown, processed and packaged in Sri Lanka."
