Finlays. The Future of Beverages.
Our Mission and Vision
Our mission is to connect humanity through natural beverages. Combining tradition and innovation to create a healthier, happier and better world by bringing the best from bush to cup.
Our vision is to grow profitably and sustainably by serving as the industry’s trusted leader in the manufacturing and supply of tea, coffee and botanical extracts to the world’s beverage brand owners.
It’s Not Just What We Do, It’s How We Do It
At Finlays, we grow, process and supply tea and tea extracts, coffee and coffee extracts and botanical solutions to major beverage brand owners. But what makes us different is our unique approach to how we do this. Our core pillars are:
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 then, 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.
