Our roots

The story of Mabroc begins over two decades ago in 1988 when a group of tea enthusiasts, possessing a wealth of knowledge and experience in the tea industry founded the company with the well-defined objective of providing top-quality, authentic Ceylon teas that would exceed the expectations of tea connoisseurs around the world.

In 2003 Mabroc joined hands with one of the premier Sri Lankan tea Plantation companies – Kelani Valley Plantations and launched the program, "A Home for Every Plantation Worker". In 2006 Mabroc-Kelani Valley tea was recognized as the first Ethical Tea Brand of the world.

In 2010 Mabroc became a fully fledged member of the World of Hayleys; one of the oldest and largest conglomerates in Sri Lanka. Begun in 1878 by Charles P. Hayley in the southern coastal town of Galle, today the Hayleys Group has production facilities and marketing offices operating in most of the major cities in the world. Mabroc acts as the marketing arm of the two Plantation Companies of Hayleys - Kelani Valley Plantations PLC and Talawakelle Tea Esates PLC, which have over 19,000 hectares of tea land with an annual production of 15 million kilograms of supreme quality Ceylon tea.

Over the years, Mabroc has assembled an array of the most valuable and comprehensive collection of Ceylon Tea, ranging from the ethical series comprising six pure Ceylon single garden teas to the Mabroc Specials, Classics and herbal teas.

The success story of Mabroc is based on a committed, caring and dedicated approach to social and environmental sustainability, backed by the quest to present authentic Ceylon teas that lift the spirits to realms beyond imagination.
