Tata Global Beverages is an incredible story, with almost 200 years of history behind us and a heritage of consistent innovation and development.
It all started when Tata Finlay was set up as a joint venture between Tata Sons and the UK-based tea plantation company, James Finlay and Company in 1962. In 1983 Tata Tea was born after James Finlay sold his shareholding to Tata, heralding the beginning of a new journey. The company set out on a path with global ambitions, evidenced by the acquisition of Tetley in 2000. This was followed by a string of strategic acquisitions including Good Earth, Jemca, Vitax, Eight O’ Clock Coffee and Himalayan Water.
Today we are an integrated beverage business that has set out on a journey to become a global leader in branded good-for-you beverages through innovation, strategic acquisition and organic growth.
Tata Global Beverages unites the beverage interests of Tata under one umbrella. It signals our global ambition, as well as marking the next logical step in our evolution from a history in plantations to becoming a marketing and brand focused organisation with a portfolio of engaging and exciting strong consumer brands.
