Circa 1859……Walter Duncan, a young Scottish merchant lands on the magical shores of the East Indies. Swayed by the beneficial climate of easy trade on the Indian shores, the intrepid traveller sets up the Playfair Duncan company to cultivate the ‘honey brew’ of the Darjeeling slopes-tea. Under this one man entrepreneurship, the company begins the export of high quality tea to a growing market abroad, and within years the name Duncans become synonymous with tea. Business expands, the Duncan Brothers Limited is formed, and the first seeds of diversification is sown- the Birpara Tea Company and the Anglo India Jute Mills.\r\n\r\n
