George Daniel Payne (1845 – 1927) established a tea and coffee merchants in 1896. The factory was at Queen Elizabeth Street, Tower Bridge, Bermondsey. Not sure when they branched out into Chocolate. In 1929, the Tower Bridge factory burned down and had to be rebuilt. The Tower Bridge site was closed in 1990 and tea processing was relocated to a new site near Doncaster, Yorkshire.
