UK’s second largest tea maker: exclusive factory tour

Typhoo Tea produces 125M teabags a week at its factory in Moreton on the Wirral Peninsula – making it the largest own-label tea packer and the second largest tea manufacturer in the UK.

Food Manufacture visited the site earlier this year to share a brew with chief executive Somnath Saha, who is the Big Interview profile for the April issue.

In this exclusive photogallery of images taken while on a tour of the operation, you can learn about the tea-making process, and how Typhoo plans to grow in a challenging market.

Take a closer look at the inside of Typhoo Tea factory by clicking through the images.

Exclusive video interview

You can also view our exclusive video interview with Saha on why he believes Brexit presents an export opportunity for food and drink manufacturers.

His comments come in spite of Typhoo being severely impacted by the post-Brexit fall of the pound, which resulted in the cost of tea increasing by up to 50% in just 12 months.

Formerly part of Premier Foods, Typhoo Tea has since 2005 been jointly owned by Indian conglomerate Apeejay Surrendra Group, and Global Tea and Commodities (GTC) – a UK-headquartered business.
