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.

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.
