It is noteworthy that both Ceylon tea and the family of Akbar Brothers were destined to begin in Sri Lanka in the Same Significant decade of 1860s. Such long, rich and invaluable family experience in tea merchandising, prompted three brothers of the younger generation, Abbas, Abid and Inaye to collectively take the initiative of propelling the cherished family tradition to new heights. Accordingly, they took leave of the parent company M.S.Hebthulabhoy & co. In 1969 to form the company Akbar Brothers. Rapid growth in business warranted this enthusiastic new company to be incorporated, and thus emerged Akbar Brothers Limited in 1972. Consequently, -Akbar- was acknowledged as the flagship brand of finest brand of finest quality Ceylon teas from Sri Lanka.
