The Product of the Year 2020 award in the Tea category was presented to Merrill J. Fernando and Dilmah CEO Dilhan Fernando by television personality Sonia Kruger.
Dilmah’s Natural Infusions won the Australian consumer award for Product of the Year in Sydney last week.
Product of the Year accepts entries every year from products around the world that demonstrate innovation and were launched within the previous year. The Dilmah Infusions range has been voted number one in the tea category this year.
Dilmah Natural Infusions were selected for the award by Australian consumers. The range is unique for its Ayurveda inspired composition, based on authentic and artisanal ingredients including Ceylon cinnamon, cardamom, clove, nutmeg, moringa, turmeric, black pepper and coconut.
“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 again recognised my commitment to quality, authenticity and a genuine purpose,” said Dilmah founder, Merril J. Fernando.
