Unilever to buy tea brand Tazo from Starbucks for $384 million

(Reuters) - Unilever (ULVR.L) (UNc.AS) said on Thursday it would buy the specialty tea brand Tazo from Starbucks in a deal valued at $384 million.

    This acquisition is the latest in a string of deals by the Anglo-Dutch consumer giant to add smaller, healthier brands to expand its portfolio in a fast-growing specialty tea segment.

    “With its strong appeal to millennials, Tazo is a perfect strategic fit for our U.S. portfolio,” Kees Kruythoff, president, Unilever North America said.
