Akbar Brothers Private Limited started with a modest dream, and the fierce determination to make that dream a reality. Taking over from our father and his father before him, at the time we could not imagine the successes that were to come as we forged forward becoming the flagship brand of finest Ceylon tea.
Over the years, ABL has explored new ventures and invested in various innovations and transformative technologies that allowed the company to enter and prosper in diverse sectors such as, power and energy, banking and insurance, pharmaceuticals, property development, and management. Through it all, the ‘tea business’ no doubt has been at the heart of our work. We cannot forget our humble beginnings, and the values with which this company has grown to be what it is today.
In the early days, when the workload was intense it was our wives, our family who stepped up and helped us to push forward. It is the same respect we have for all our staff today. They are the backbone and strength of our Akbar family, and we as a company are unyielding in our commitment and trust towards them. In return our employees have shown the company tremendous loyalty and support.
We believe in cultivating an open and transparent environment and ABL’s successes rely primarily on the honesty and respect between its management, employees, clients and customers. The relationships we foster and the friendships we make are ultimately measures of the progress we have made. With decades of the right experience, unfailing values and a steadfast attitude, ABL has become the hallmark of success in the tea industry and become a prominent player in a wide range of sectors in Sri Lanka.
