Ekaterra is home to 34 superior and well-loved brands serving some of the world’s favorite brews and herbal infusions. And we’re always finding new ways to delight tea lovers. 621 million people enjoy a cup or two (or three, or four…) of our brews every day. So, it’ll come as no surprise that we source a lot of tea – all while keeping our environmental footprint small as can be.
Ekaterra is a company based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands that produces tea and other herbal drinks. It was formed in 2021 as a distinct division within Unilever as part of a plan to divest the majority of its tea-making business, including PG Tips, Lipton, Pukka, Tazo, Lyons, and other brands. Lipton ready-to-drink beverages are sold by "Pepsi Lipton International", a company jointly owned by Ekaterra and PepsiCo.
Ekaterra was purchased by the private equity firm CVC Capital Partners for €4.5 billion in July 2022. CVC Capital Partners is a Luxembourg-based private equity and investment advisory firm that spun out of Citicorp (citibank).
