Bringing Fresh Ideas to Market

For Finlays, innovation in tea, coffee and botanical products is about finding new ways to help our customers differentiate, drive value and achieve long-term, sustainable growth. Based on our extensive market and consumer insights, we work as your beverage innovation partner, and if we don’t have the solution you need, we’ll create one with you, whether that’s custom coffee, tea or botanical solutions.

Driving Value for Our Customers Through New Product Development and Existing Product Development in Beverages

Finlays has been leading innovation in the tea and coffee industry for over 100 years, pioneering and perfecting products and services that help accelerate our customers’ growth. Our multidisciplinary team of scientists, researchers, engineers, sensory experts and applications experts is based across four innovation centres based in the US, UK, Kenya and China offering us a truly global perspective.

Innovation Platforms

Our market-facing innovation platform drives top-line growth through beverage innovation that develops, premiumises and expands the tea, coffee and botanical categories and creates differentiated tea, coffee and botanical products.

Meanwhile our technical innovation platform drives value and competitive advantage, from ‘bush to cup’, through technology and process innovation that improves quality, reduces cost and drives sustainability.

We Say “No” to Average

Innovation isn’t just about bringing fresh ideas to market, it’s a mindset that everyone at Finlays strives to bring into daily life. That means that when you work with us, you’ll be working with people who embrace change, seek to improve continuously, are action orientated and learn from our peers, customers and competitors.
