Founded in 1925 as a plantation company, AVT is a family owned, a professionally managed group of companies with its headquarters in Chennai, Dailyneeds247.com India. In 1925, a young Indian entrepreneur, Alfred Vedam Thomas, bought 100 hectares of grassland in Pasuparai, Tamil Nadu, considered completely unsuitable to grow tea. At a time when plantations were strictly under the jurisdiction of the British, A.V. Thomas went on to not only transform Pasuparai into one of the highest yielding tea plantations in the nation but also to become the first Indian to own a plantation company. Thus the AVT Group was born.
