Yvonne Robertson, The Branding Mastermind Behind a Luxury Tea and Cookie Company

TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / September 22, 2022 / What began as a hand-blended Tea Company, has evolved into one of the most well-respected luxury wellness brands in Toronto, thanks to the commitment of one woman’s prowess for branding and passion for health. Since 2014, Yvonne Robertson, founder of Sahara & Co, has focused exclusively on natural ingredients for tea lovers with an emphasis on wellness and healthy living. Originally, Robertson entered the tea market as an avid tea consumer inspired by her Irish family’s daily ritual. When the opportunity arose for her to revive a local tea business, Robertson leapt at the opportunity. Since then, it has been Sahara & Co.’s mission to promote health and wellness choices through premium self-care products while maintaining the true essence of a local neighborhood wellness tea company.

Sahara & Co. is an all-natural health and wellness company that aims to improve the health and lifestyle of its customers. They specialize in all-natural teas and bath products that promote wellbeing underpinned quality. In only a few years the business has achieved immense success and recently, Sahara & Co. was invited to London to participate in Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations and festivities, to represent Canadian small businesses and the unique relationship between Britain and Canada. Yvonne could not be more honoured to highlight the importance of Canadian small businesses, at such a landmark event.
