A Refreshing Change – Founder of Charbrew and guest speaker Adam Soliman, is a graduate who saw that in the current economic climate, he was unlikely to gain a high level role in the corporate world. So he set his sights on developing his own business.
Adam Soliman & Tea
From initial visits to the tea plantations in Vietnam, the enthusiasm for his idea (which saw a gap in the UK market) began. Drawing on his experience and that of family and friends – Adam saw that the tea market in the UK was over run with bland and bitter teas… and an opening for the correct product was there.
Adam Soliman realised his ambition of starting his own business, at a much earlier age than expected. With drive, enthusiasm and huge ambition he now finds himself running a very successful business.
After only 18 months in the market place, Adam had his product stocked in the UK and internationally. Charbrew is now stocked in over 2,500 stores: in America and Canada, across French supermarket giant Casino; Dean, Deluca and Lulu chains in the Middle East and Booths Supermarket in the North of England.
Adam Soliman Tea Disruptor
Adam’s ultimate goal is to update the UK’s tea market. Charbrew is a healthy brand, bringing innovation to the hot drinks category. With a range of unique teas, such as healthy RTD Ice Tea. Charbrew is sold in the UK with WH Smith, Holland & Barrett, Spar, Sainsbury’s and more.
