“It has been a huge honour and privilege to have played a part in turning around the fortunes of one of Britain’s best loved tea brands. I would like to extend a huge thanks to the entire Typhoo team for helping us to achieve this.”

“I know Typhoo is in good hands. Mike has already brought an incredible depth of knowledge and experience into the company, and now as part of the Typhoo team, we can ensure a smooth transition.”
