It’s teatime somewhere: International leadership in herbal teas with Mark Dalgety

Mr. Mark Dalgety is Dr. Foster’s guest on this episode of Fostering Solutions, a part of the Keys to Leadership Series. Mark is the founder of Dalgety Teas, the largest tea company owned by someone of Caribbean descent in Europe. Twenty-five years ago, Mark started drying Corilla (Cerassie) bush at his home in Georgetown, Guyana, and packaging it for sale in the United Kingdom. Then, using his chemical engineering skills and creativity, buoyed by his entrepreneurial spirit, Mark applied tea-bagging technology to what West Indians call “bush tea.” Today, Dalgety Teas has over 30 variants of herbal teas, which are sold in the UK’s top supermarket chains, including Tesco, Sainsbury, and Asda. Mark also exports his delicious teas to numerous European countries, South Korea, and China. His latest venture, which hit the global market in 2020-21, was the commissioning of Dalgety Ghana Ltd, which has begun market penetration of the African continent with its 1.5 billion inhabitants.
