A Tradition of Quality

When it comes to the quality factor, Akbar Brothers is renowned for focusing on continuous innovations of product lines, packaging and processing.

Stringent quality control at Akbar Brothers' premises has been primarily entrusted to a workforce of over thousand dedicated, experienced and qualified personnel. Each consignment undergoes rigorous quality checks and tests by experienced tea tasters and quality supervisors during every stage of production up to the time of shipment. Nevertheless, since quality of Ceylon tea is a time-honoured tradition in the Akbar brothers' family, a family member is always at hand to personally check into the quality of tea.
