Founder / Director at Canton Tea
Co-founder of the UK Tea Academy
After a career as a copywriter at The Body Shop in its campaigning heyday, Jennifer Wood founded her tea company, Canton, in 2007. The values of the business were the same then as they are today, to buy beautiful hand-crafted tea, direct from small traditional farms. Canton supplies the premium F&B sector and passionate independents. In 2015 she co-founded the UK Tea Academy to deliver a professional certification programme to help raise the appreciation of good tea and improve tea service throughout the UK and beyond.
