Let's talk about Samuel Ryder, the English businessman where the event was named after.

Samuel Ryder was an Entrepreneur, Golf Enthusiast and also a Golf Promoter. The idea of selling garden seeds in "Penny Packets" originated from him and he also built a successful business with the same concept.

While being all of the above, Samuel Ryder also founded Heath & Heather tea and established it in 1920. He joined with his Elder Brother, James Ryder to set up Heath & Heather Limited.
