BOH: a family dedication to tea, a company destiny to success.
SKGF has been the Thailand partner for almost a decade, distributing all the main tea products. BOH is a tea leader in the world, and was founded in 1929. Today, BOH Plantations owns three tea gardens - the first garden in Habu, Fairlie Tea Garden and Sungai Palas Tea Garden.To ensure the freshness of its tea products, BOH Plantations also set up a packaging factory near its main garden.
More than 5000 foot above sea level, on the main mountain range of Malaysia, is one of the most fertile agricultural spots in the country: Cameron Highlands. Nicknamed 'Malaysia's Green Bowl', the Highlands possess all the right attributes of prime cropland - moderate temperatures, high altitude, abundant rainfall, long hours of sunshine and well-drained soil.
These features were not lost on J.A. Russell, an established businessman who owned substantial tin and rubber investments in Malaya during the early 1900s. A man of keen business acumen, J.A. noticed that the demand for high quality tea remained high even during slumps. So in 1929, J.A. established Boh Tea Garden, the country's first Highlands tea garden in Cameron Highlands. Today, BOH Plantations owns two more tea gardens in Cameron Highlands: Fairlie and Sungei Palas.
Tea is very much like wine; the conditions in which the crop is grown have great influence on its final character. BOH's tea gardens, bringing together the ideal environmental conditions of Cameron Highlands and the precision of mechanised operations, yield a tea with superb characteristics – bright and brisk complemented by a delightful aroma.
BOH packs its own teas which are marketed in both domestic and international markets. Today, BOH has the largest combined acreage of tea gardens in the country. The Company remains committed to the legacy of the Russell family.
