Jamaican Teas Limited (formerly Tetley Tea Co. (Ja) Ltd) was founded in Jamaica in 1967 and initially produced only black tea under the Tetley brand and provided contract manufacturing arrangements. The company was acquired by the father-and-son team of Adeeb and John Mahfood in 1995. Since then, the Caribbean Dreams brand has been launched, offering consumers unique herbal combinations and infusions. The brand's product range has expanded to include instant mixes and a range of pantry items, such as soup mixes and spring water - Jamaica Blue. Teas and soup mixes are also produced through private label arrangements for a number of other local and international companies.
Today, with over forty different types of teas, the company is the largest producer of teas in the Caribbean, with 60% of its products exported to fourteen (14) Caribbean markets, North and South America, and the United Kingdom.
Our food products are produced to the highest safety and quality standards, providing wholesome benefits to our consumers. Our internationally recognized, Safe Quality Foods (SQF), HACCP, and OK Kosher certifications are evidence of our commitment to food safety and quality.
