About the Tea Business
Unilever is proud of its Tea business, the biggest in the world,
with world class purpose driven brands such as Lipton, PG tips and
Pukka. Recently, Unilever decided to separate the Tea business to
ensure it can best achieve its potential. Unilever is currently
reviewing several options for separation, including a demerger, an
initial public offering, a disposal or through partnership models.
The Tea businesses in India and Indonesia, and the partnership
interests in the ready-to-drink Tea joint ventures will be
The balance of the Tea brands and geographies and all Tea
estates, with generated revenues of 2 billion in 2019, is growing
and profitable with proven potential both pre- and post-COVID-19.
As a standalone entity, the Tea company remains number one in the
world and is even better positioned to lead the industry and take
full advantage of the opportunities in the category, with more
focus and entrepreneurship driving greater growth and value.
The current vision for the Tea company is to champion a tastier,
healthier, more sustainable world of plant-based drinking.
Purposeful thinking will be the core anchor of the business, its
brands as well as its culture, and enables simple and agile
decision making, supports an entrepreneurial mindset and is driven
by passion for our consumers.
As we move through this journey towards separation, we are
seeking employees with a passion for exciting entrepreneurial
experiences, who want to pursue unique career opportunities and
have a desire to be an integral part in building the bright future
of this plant-based company.
