Monday 12th March, 14:00, Seminar Room – Growing global: Opportunities in international trade (Workshop)
Jonathon Jones is the pioneer of the UK’s very first tea plantation. He used his expert botanical knowledge and experience travelling the world’s tea plantations to set up the gardens. He researched the tea industry using www.plimsoll.co.uk, and used the analysis to set up the business and identify key opportunities, especially in export.
Now, Tregothnan tea is stocked by big name brands including Liberty, Waitrose and Fortnum and Mason. An advocate of export opportunities for the UK, Tregothnan tea is sold worldwide with key markets in the US, China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan.
