#main-content Robert Thompson

Over a century ago, Punjana was beginning its life near the docklands in Belfast, where in 1896 Robert Thompson was made a partner in McArthur and Willis, tea importers and blenders. Robert Thompson originally entered the tea trade in 1887, and studied the art of tea tasting, soon becoming known for his uncomprimising devotion to quality. He led the company for 51 years before handing on the business to the second generation.
