Finlays, with a worldwide network of branches in the UK, USA, Kenya, Indonesia, Vietnam, and the UAE, established its Colombo branch in 1893 and is one of the oldest companies in Sri Lanka with over 125 years of experience in the tea industry with production, blending, packaging and trading expertise.

Our production facility is ISO 22000:2018 (Food Safety Management System), ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management System), ISO 14001:2015 (Environment Management System) and SKAL (Organic Tea Certification) certified. Also, the Analytical Laboratory is ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accredited and the Teabag manufacturing plant is BRC (British Retail Consortium) certified.

This state-of-the-art Colombo packing facility, which is amongst the most modern in Sri Lanka, was built in 1997. It encompasses tea warehousing, tea processing, quality assurance and marketing, all under one roof and is fully equipped with modern tea bagging machines such as IMA C24E, IMA C27 and IMA C23 together with a host of other ancillary equipment to facilitate a fully flexible automated production unit.

Our lines of tea bagging machines are capable of producing 1.5 million teabags per day (with or without envelopes). The state-of-the-art tea bagging machines produce staple-free, knot technology teabags. Each teabag produced by these machines is optically scanned to ensure a defect-free, safe-for-use product.

We also operate an automated tea blending machine with a capacity of 10 metric tons per hour.

The flexibility we offer customers is our ability to undertake packing of small volume production runs providing new entry customers an opportunity to utilize our services to gradually develop and expand their businesses.

Green Tea

The Green Tea manufacturing facility was established in 1993 to cater to the needs of customers who sought a quality Ceylon green tea to add to their existing range of quality Ceylon black tea products. This transformed Finlays in Sri Lanka into a one-stop global shop for Ceylon Tea. We produce both the popular Chinese-style panned Green Tea, a Japanese steamed variety of Green Tea and Organic Green Tea. Finlays Green Tea is purchased by customers in countries such as the Middle East, Australia and Europe.
