One unit is located at Toopran in Hyderabad and the other two are at Theni, Madurai.

The Toopran unit is an ISO- 9001: 2000 certified factory. This factory was initially set up with Brazilian technology to produce spray dried instant coffee. The aroma add-back system was introduced in 1997 and in 2001, the agglomerated plant was set up with technology from Denmark.

Tata Coffee is at an advanced stage of discussion with the Starbucks management to start manufacturing coffee for their retail sales. This basically means all coffee meant for retail sales by Starbucks will be produced and packaged by us. The official at Tata Coffee said - We are building capacity at the Madurai plant which will see capacity addition of 2,000 tonne very soon. The overall capex required for this will be to the tune of Rs50 crore.
