Mr. Øyvind Morris Faye, CEO and Founder at Green Supply in Norway paid a visit to H.E. Mr. Godfrey Cooray, Ambassador at the Embassy of Sri Lanka in Oslo on October 22, 2020 to introduce his company to the Mission to promote “Hyson Ceylon Tea” as one of the world’s renowned tea in Sri Lanka.

Mr. Faye informed that he started to import the Hyson Tea to Norway couple weeks ago and informed us that Hyson Teas already is distributed to a big chain in Norway called Europris. They have about 270 stores across the country.

Mr. Faye explained of the prospect of importing and selling Ceylon Tea for the Norwegian market, Iceland and Finland in the future.

Hyson Teas (Pvt) Ltd., is a specialized tea Company engaged in exporting the finest quality Ceylon tea to over 40 countries worldwide. Hyson Teas was incorporated in 2002 and ever since, their export business has been increasing rapidly because of their business practices, business associates and partners overseas.

His Excellency, Mr. Godfrey Cooray informed Mr. Faye that the Embassy is ready to promote Hyson Tea giving priority as Sri Lankan Tea is the best Tea in the World and will include Hyson Tea in the Mission’s Business Forum website.

The Ambassador highlighted that in the future he would be looking to have a press conference to promote the Ceylon Tea. Mr. Faye was very happy for the proposal. The Embasy is planning to have a promotional campaign and food fair in Lillestrøm in January 2021. But due to the COVID there is a doubt that the fair will take place. But Promotional activities will be organized by the Mission to promote Ceylon Tea giving more publicity in the Embassy as well as in the press.

Mr. Faye also explained about the Hyson Tea products like the Organic Wellness Collection a fresh non blended tea and Hyson Exotic Collection of handpicked teas and fruits infusions. He is looking forward to eventually import other Hyson products accordingly.
