Tata Consumer Products

Tata Consumer Products announced that it has signed definitive agreements to acquire 100 per cent equity shares of Capital Foods, owner of the brands 'Ching's Secret' and 'Smith & Jones', in a phased manner. 75 per cent of the equity shareholding will be acquired upfront and the balance 25 per cent shareholding will be acquired within the next three years. This move is consistent with Tata Consumer's strategic intent to expand its product portfolio and its target addressable market in fast-growing/high-margin categories.

The overall size of the categories in which Capital Foods operates in is estimated at INR 21,400 crore. Structural growth drivers for the category include continued growth in income levels, evolving consumer preferences leading to increased salience of global cuisines in in-home cooking and increasing need for convenience.

Like Capital Foods, Tata is a home-grown brand that is globally recognised. Tata Consumer Products is a multi-conglomerate that spans the globe with quality food ingredients and products. Together, Tata and Capital Foods can create a multinational culinary brand that includes multiple food categories. The journey ahead is going to be a giant leap for us, full of endless possibilities and definitely exhilarating!"
