Our late, beloved father, Mr. S.M. Mohideen first founded our business under the name of “Meezan” way back in 1925. He was an enterprising businessman popularly known as ‘Meezan Hadjiyar’, the Maestro Business Magnet behind the wheel of the business.
He first stepped into the trade of tea when he purchased the Ancoombra Tea Factory along with its fields in 1946. This was the same locality where the late Mr. Henry Steven first introduced Tea in the year 1864. It is interesting to note that Mr. Steven himself was the cousin of the late James Taylor, known today as ‘The Father of Ceylon Tea’.
