Tata Tea, the second largest tea company in the world is planning to foray into the food segment business in the future
times. Incepted as a producer and seller of tea, Tata Global Beverages (till recently Tata Tea Ltd) aims at becoming a
beverage company. The information was confirmed by Ratan Tata, the Chairman of Tata Group.
CEO Peter Unsworth, who joined the company when the Tatas acquired Tetley 10 years back, said the company, with a
turnover of $1.5 billion, has set a target of taking it to $5 billion by 2015.
Tea contributes around 71% of company’s consolidated business. The company wants to surprise its customers with its
new and innovative products. The company is optimistic on the proposed joint venture with Pepsi to produce non-carbonated
drinks, particularly fortified water products.
The Himalayan mineral water would be a part of this operation.
