Our Heritage

Founded in 1750, Finlays has been sourcing tea since 1817 and producing it since the 1870s. Finlays quickly grew to become one of the world’s largest beverage businesses. We pioneered the production of private-label tea packing and coffee roasting in the UK in 1905 and the production of tea extracts in Kenya in the 1960s. Since becoming wholly-owned by the Swire Group in 2000, Finlays has expanded its beverage business significantly through new investments in China (acquiring shares in Damin) and the Americas (acquiring ownership of Autocrat, Casa Fuentes and Aspen Beverage Group), together with continued investments in its existing business in Europe, Africa and Asia. Today, with deep roots across the globe and extensive experience and expertise, no-one is better placed to unleash the potential of natural beverages by helping brand owners to bring the best from bush to cup.
