Innovation in our products

Our legacy of innovation spans our range of food and beverage offerings. In 1989, Tetley introduced the round tea bag that was suited to the growing habit of brewing tea in mugs. This was followed by the drip-less or ‘drawstring’ tea bag.
 
Our flagship brand Tata Tea revolutionised the packaged tea market in India more than 35 years ago by introducing the flavour-locking poly pack in 1985. Our Foods business pioneered the iodised salt industry in India in 1983 with Tata Salt.
 
Our recent innovations include Tata Salt Plus and Tata Salt Lite variants, Tetley Cold Infusions, Tata Sampann Nutrimixes, Eight O’Clock Coffee’s Flavors of America, Tata Gluco Plus and more.
