Founder of Dilmah, Merrill J.z Fernando, accepted the prestigious consumer award for Product of the Year for the Dilmah Natural Infusions last week. The winning range includes three natural wellness inspired infusions.
Product of the Year accepts entries every year from products around the world that demonstrate innovation and were launched within the previous year (survey of 10,000 people by Nielsen).
The Product of the Year is the world’s largest consumer-voted award for product innovation.
The Dilmah Infusions range has been voted number one in the tea category this year and will hold this seal for the next 12 months.
Each infusion is caffeine-free and made from a combination of Sri Lankan spices and herbs that contain powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits – promoting overall wellness and healing with every sip.
“I named Dilmah after my sons Dilhan and Malik, and it is just as precious to me. I will never
compromise on the great taste, natural goodness and ethical purpose which form the heart of Dilmah. I first brought Dilmah to Australia in the 1980s as a tea grower with a dream of launching my own brand. Everyone told me it was impossible, but Australian tea drinkers appreciate the taste and goodness in my tea and gave me the break I needed. I am humbled that 32 years later Australian consumers have once again recognised my commitment to quality, authenticity and a genuine purpose” said Fernando.
Dilmah’s Infusions teas, RRP $3.70, can be purchased from Coles and Metcash stores in Australia.
