Himalayan is marketed by NourishCo, a joint venture between Tata Consumer Products and PepsiCo India. The water is bottled at source from a pure and pristine underground moving stream aquifer, which is about 400 feet below the surface, located at the foothills of the Shivalik range in the Himalayas. This aquifer is one of the largest and purest sources in the world, providing a perennial source of natural mineral water. The catchment area has no human activity and is pollution-free. Every drop travels through layers of rock, sand and silt for over 20 years. These layers act as natural filters and keep the water naturally pure and bacteria-free. During this journey, the pure water picks up essential minerals and acquires its fine, unique taste before reaching an underground reservoir. The aquifer is naturally protected from pollutants by a thick impervious layer of clay that acts as a barrier and prevents any contaminants from passing through it.16

Industry Overview

The total organised Indian F&B industry is expected to be ~Rs. 4,00,000 Crores market as on 2019 and projected to grow by 2.5x to ~Rs. 10,00,000 Crores by 2025 (CAGR of 16%) – leveraging India’s favourable demographic (1.4 Billion strong population, rising income levels and higher urbanisation). The F&B segment constitutes ~30% of household spending and is expected to sustain the wallet share, going forward.23



As per Euromonitor estimates, global hot tea category is a ~USD 45 Billion industry. Black/Everyday black tea forms the largest category sub-segment globally – but is declining across different international markets. Non-black tea (Green, Fruit & Herbal, Decaf, Specialty, Cold Infusions etc.) is growing and in some markets like Canada, has become larger than black tea. However, a similar growth profile may not be seen across the different non-black segments. For instance, green tea has started witnessing softening of growth/decline in some markets

Health & wellness is one of the key focus areas of the industry. There is an increasing number of new launches with active health claims, such as Gut Health and Sports & Recovery (Tetley Super Teas also leverage on this trend). Consumer perception with respect to macronutrients in relation to health are evolving as media/science dictates what is good for body like no sugar, good carbs, low sodium (Tetley Cold Infusions was launched with an alternative offer of low sugar hydration).

Indian tea market is estimated to be ~Rs. 26,000 Crores, with unbranded being 30-35% of the overall market (by value). Tea is the favourite Indian beverage and the company continue to see growth across all tiers through upgradation from loose to economy branded tea and movement up the chain to premium and super premium teas. Black tea is the predominant sub-category, with high customer preference for the taste of boiled milk tea. Green tea is estimated to be ~3% of the branded category and is growing at 12.5%. Health & wellness continues to be a strong trend and consumers are also looking at functional benefits from their cup of chai (such as Ayurveda Tea and Tulsi Tea).

There is a re-emergence of tea cafés in urban centres in the last few years, which is helping reinvent the tea culture, provide a comfortable venue compared to tea stalls and serve as an alternative to coffee chains. Tea cafés like Chaayos, Chaipoint and its own Tata Cha are becoming prominent. There is an increasing potential base of consumers, who see tea as fashionable and are getting familiar with different varieties of tea.


Retail hot coffee is ~2x the size of Tea at USD 88 Billion. USA  is the largest coffee market – estimated at ~USD 12 Billion – and has also been leading growth in the category.

Coffee has four sub-segments: Roast & Ground, Beans, Pods and Instant Coffee. Affordable ground and instant formats are more prevalent in early stage markets like Asia, Africa and the Middle East (where Tea is the primary beverage of choice) while Roast & Ground and Pods are more prevalent in countries with an evolved café culture. The company's largest play in coffee is in USA with the Eight O’ Clock coffee brand.

The USA market has been witnessing a slowdown of growth and an increase in competitive intensity. The growth is either being driven by: (1) premium/food service brands (such  as Starbucks and Dunkin Donut) that are over-investing in promotions/discounts; (2) small niche brands that are capitalising on trend of artisanal, single-origin coffees; and (3) private label (retailers look at SKU rationalisation and restrict shelf choice to a few select brands).

Consumers are looking at authentic and premium choices in coffee, and there have been several new launches targeting the trend (like the company launched Barista Blend and Flavors of America). Consumers are also more conscious about their choices and want to select healthier options.

The branded retail coffee market in India is estimated at ~Rs. 2,750 Crores in 2019. Instant coffee is the largest sub segment and is ~80-85% of the category and growing as consumers look at convenience. Tata Consumer Products is also witnessing the emergence of artisanal and gourmet premium coffees – estimated to be ~5% of the organised market. In terms of at-home consumption, the company see different consumer behaviours in the South and Rest of India segments. In the Rest of India, coffee is an aspirational product and there is preference for instant coffee, especially during winters. On the other hand, in the South, the company see regular consumption of both instant and Roasted & Ground (filter coffee).


Water is the second largest beverage sub-category after  Tea in India (globally it is the largest sub-category in  the Beverages market). The current size of the packaged water market in India is ~Rs. 17,000 Crores, growing at a CAGR of 12%. Fruit-based beverages is a ~Rs. 8,250 Crores category, growing at a CAGR of 10%.

Within the packaged drinking water category, the company were one of the first players to launch naturally sourced mineral water in India through its brand Himalayan, and continue to enjoy a leadership position. The company also entered the functional and fortified water space with Tata Gluco Plus and Tata Water Plus.


The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in short-term disruptions in the industry, especially for out-of-home consumption. Even for essential products like Tea and Coffee, there will be supply challenges before things get normalised. In the short term, the company will also see consumers getting more value conscious and hence, the growth dynamics will change across the different tiers (economy/premium).

However, long-term drivers remain robust and expect continued expansion of the categories. There is an opportunity to grow, driven primarily by distribution expansion (including into white space geographies like Rajasthan, with the acquisition of Lal Ghoda and Kala Ghoda) as well as through new product innovation.


The organised Indian Staples industry is ~Rs. 88,000 Crores in 2019. It is largely unorganised, with the share of branded players at less than 10%.


Within the Staples category, the Indian Salt market is estimated to be ~Rs. 7,000 Crores with unorganised players forming ~12% of the category by volume (a stark difference to the rest of the category). The growth drivers for branded play remains the increasing awareness of better product quality, visible purity and iodine content. The company compete in the category with Tata Salt (vacuum evaporated salt sold nationally) and I-Shakti salt (lower priced solar evaporated salt normally sold in South). The company's supply partners, Tata Chemicals have the largest manufacturing facility for producing vacuum evaporated salt in India. Tata Consumer Products is seeing a growing trend of health & wellness with consumers making conscious choices by selecting better-for-you options (such as lower sodium content in Tata Salt Lite, Iron and iodine fortification in Tata Salt Plus). Specialty salts like rock salt and black salt have increased presence in modern format stores.


India is the largest producer, consumer and importer of pulses. The total Pulses and Derivatives industry is estimated to be ~Rs. 1,50,000 Crores in FY 2018-19 with only 1% of the segment being branded. The low penetration is primarily led by a host of factors including low perceived value addition by packaged players (leading to consumers unwilling to pay price premium) and low consumer concern regarding adulteration in unbranded. However, the trend has been changing in the last few years with consumers preference for better quality packaged products, launch of differentiated products (such as Tata Sampann Unpolished dals, Tata Sampann Low Oil Absorb Besan, an organic range of pulses) and growth in the number of organised players entering the category (and thereby, expanding the base). Tata Sampann is the first national branded player in this category.


India is the world’s largest producer, consumer and exporter of spices and accounts for almost half of the global spice trade. The total Spices industry is worth ~Rs. 60,000 Crores, with the branded Spices industry, estimated to be ~Rs. 18,000 Crores in FY 2018-19, is highly fragmented with the presence of many regional players. The branded segment is growing at a CAGR of ~15%. Straight/Pure Spices form ~80% of the segment (with a high-competitive intensity from unorganised players), while blended spices are mainly branded with consumers choosing to be brand loyal. However, there is an increasing demand for branded products, with consumers looking at improved quality products in straight/pure spices (with better quality of raw materials used) and increasing adoption of blended spices in the kitchen (higher convenience and consistency of taste).


Snacks/Ready-to-Cook is an Rs. 40,000 Crores segment with a high share of branded play (Ready-to-Cook is all-branded in comparison to Snacks). The growth is being driven by more players entering the segment and offering consumer different taste choices including healthier food and convenience (such as Tata Sampann Chilla Mix).


The company expect the current trends to continue and the demand for the branded products in the staples category to grow at a strong pace. The disruption caused due to COVID-19 is likely to further accelerate the adoption of branded products across the Staples and Spices category as customers are now preferring more branded products than loose and local options.

Financial Highlights

During the year 2019-2020, the Company has completed the acquisition of the Consumer Products Business (India Foods business) from Tata Chemicals Limited (“TCL”).

Profit before exceptional items at Rs. 1,084 Crore includes the impact of acquisition of the Foods business and improved performance of the branded beverage business arising from gross margin improvements and good control of spends partially offset by higher spends behind brands. The non-Branded business has performed marginally behind previous year, mainly due to underperformance in Coffee plantations partially offset by improvement in pepper plantation and commencement of operations in Vietnam.

The Consolidated Profit after tax at Rs. 535 Crore recorded a growth after absorbing the impact of exceptional items. The Group Net Profit for the year remained flat while Group Net Profits net of minority interest at Rs. 460 Crore recorded a growth of 13% as compared to the previous year.

The accounting impairment has been recognised due to a combination of factors like COVID - 19 related impact on specific out of home business segments, changes in discount rates due to market conditions and revision in business plan sensitivities.

April 01, 2021; Tata Consumer Products Ltd (TCPL) on Thursday announced exit from its two US-based joint ventures by selling its stake to the JV partner Harris Tea Company LLC.
