Our vision is to establish Plateanum® as an equally well sought after and valuable companion in the best houses of the catering and hospitality industry. Whether as part of the breakfast buffet, in the hotel lobby or at the classic teatime at 5 p.m.; even at a later hour in the bar, lounge or club area, our teas leave a lasting impression due to their self-assured presence.
