"With our growth strategy for a premium tea exclusively focused on Teavana, we are pleased to transition our Tazo business to Unilever", President and CEO, Starbucks, Kevin Johnson, said in a statement. The brand pulled in $112.5 million in revenue over the previous year and UL believes that there is room for more growth.
In addition to Tazo, Unilever owns beverage brands Lipton and Brisk, both of which make tea products.
For Starbuck's, which acquired Tazo in 1999 for $8.1 million, the deal is a lucrative one which offers a more than 47-times return on its investment.
Unilever North America president Kees Kruythoff, meanwhile, praised TAZO's strong appeal with millennials.
"With its strong appeal to millennials, Tazo is a ideal strategic fit for our U.S. portfolio that includes exciting new brands such as Seventh Generation, Dollar Shave Club and Sir Kensington's", Unilever North America president Kees Kruythoff said.
