Unilever is proud of its tea business ekaterra, the biggest in the world, with world class purpose driven brands such as Lipton, PG tips and Pukka.

eka stands for unity and one purpose while terra stands for earth and nature. As ekaterra we are united in one purpose : growing a world of wellbeing through the regenerative power of plants.

Recently Unilever announced that it had agreed to sell ekaterra to CVC Capital Partners Fund VIII.

Present in more than 100 countries, ekaterra generated revenues of €2 billion in 2019. With 11 production factories in four continents and tea growing estates in three countries, ekaterra is a profitable and growing business offering a world of wellbeing with the regenerative power of plants to hundreds of millions of consumers.
