When tracing the roots of our company, we stumbled across some tea-stained and dusty paperwork originating from the London Tea Auctions. It was amongst these that we discovered the earliest mention of a well-respected gentleman going by the name of Mr Reginald Ames. He was engaged in the purchase of several chests of the highest quality teas.
To this day, over 100 years later, we remain true to his beliefs, that only the best quality will do! The company has however grown and diversified during this time and now works with some of the worlds most prestigious brands, hoteliers, catering outlets, supermarkets and shop chains as well as a multitude of independent stores.
Building on our history and knowledge within the sector, we began contract packing teas for a range on customers, over 25 years ago. Today, we run a wide range of bespoke machinery, for packing Large Leaf Pyramid and Square Teabags, Tag and Envelope Paper Teabags, Square Paper Teabags and, of course, Loose Leaf Teas and Infusions. For the majority of our customers, we are a source for all their tea needs, from sourcing the raw ingredients from origin, creating bespoke blends, packing in to a range of formats and delivering a fully shelf ready pack in to the retailer.
As we look to the future, we believe customers are demanding more awareness of where their food and drink comes from. We are dedicated to always sourcing our teas from ethical and sustainable sources and businesses that abide by internationally agreed best practices for workers and the environment.
Please contact us on 01732 351489 for further information.
We hold a range of certifications including BRC, Ethical Tea Partnership, Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance and Organic Certification.
With regular visits to our suppliers at origin, rigorous reviews of packaging, tasting upwards of 100 teas a day and a constant awareness of the environment, the team at Reginald Ames are doing everything possible to deliver Ethical, Sustainable products of the utmost Quality.
