Change in name for Tata Tea

Tata Tea has announced that it has been renamed as Tata Global Beverages Ltd, effective today, in keeping with its earlier-stated plans to diversify its product portfolio. The company said, the move “demonstrates our intent to build a new and strong global brand”.

Tata Global Beverages will consolidate all of the Tata Group’s various drinks units, retaining the existing brand names for now. The company has been looking to distinguish itself as more than just a tea company, and has been moving into the bottled water and fruit juices business.
