India’s Tata Global Beverages plans wellness products

Starting as a producer and seller of tea, Tata Global Beverages (until recently Tata Tea Ltd) has emerged as a beverage company with the ultimate goal of being in the food business.

"[The] change in name has been done to reflect the change in business of the company, which going forwards, will be more and more [about] beverages and eventually and possibly into food through innovations, and the accent will be on wellness and good-health products," chairman Ratan Tata said during his address to shareholders at the company’s annual general meeting. "We would stay away from products that tend to be unhealthy and injurious to people’s health," he added.
