TWININGS & CO SNAPSHOT
Twinings & Co is the Australia division of Twinings, a premium hot beverage business within the Associated British Foods (ABF) group of companies.
Associated British Foods is a diversified international food, ingredients and retail group with sales of £13.4bn, 130,000 employees and operations in 50 countries across Europe, southern Africa, the Americas, Asia and Australia.
Twinings was founded in 1706. We’re proud of our history, strengthened by the knowledge and expertise acquired, but our focus is on the future.
In Australia, we work autonomously – developing, marketing and selling well known brands including Twinings, Jarrah and Ovaltine.
We are a significant player in the Australian FMCG market place – our innovation, world class TVC development and customer programs are the envy of many competitors.
We have substantial growth plans, and are investing heavily in infrastructure and new channels.
At Twinings & Co, we pride ourselves on our values. They are the foundation of our business, and we love that our people incorporate them into everything they do. Our values are how we’ve achieved great success with our brands and company in the past, and they’ll ensure we continue to strive for even greater success in the future.
Rather than just looking at ‘what’ we need to do to enable us to deliver outstanding performance, we also focus on ‘how’ we do to it in a way that’s better than our competitors. By focusing on these behaviours, we not only benefit the entire company, but every single person who works with us. Our people have the confidence and ability to achieve great things. And that makes us all happy.
We aim high… That’s where we want to be, so that’s our focus. We value ambition, intuition, commitment, experience and love to see results.
We collaborate… Our people are great individually, but unstoppable as a team. We work hard together but also have a lot of fun.
We look outside… To be the best, we need to make sure we stay on top of best practice. We think outside the square, constantly looking at which industries and companies we can learn and improve from.
We find new ways… We’re flexible, proactive and never let an opportunity pass us by. Creativity and determination get us through any challenges.
We have the freedom to act and the scope for growth… We take responsibility and strive individually and collectively to do amazing things… Always.
At Twinings & Co, we aim to help our people be the best they can be, and our culture is an important part of achieving this. Just like the art of blending flavours to create the perfect tea, we blend and balance key workplace elements to create a culture that’s ideal for our people to achieve and grow. The result – our people feel empowered to make a difference, and love doing what they do!
Work & Play
We are all passionate about our brands and products, and are dedicated to our consumers – who love to refresh, revive or relax with them every day. This dedication drives us to set inspirational goals and to succeed. Ultimately this is why we work so hard. But we have a lot of laughs and fun along the way, in a relaxed and friendly environment!
Autonomy & Support
Our people are all clear about their job roles and what’s expected, and we give them the freedom to get on and do it without getting bogged down in bureaucracy. To ensure everyone feels supported in their autonomy, we are big on leadership – our managers genuinely get a buzz out of helping their team members grow and achieve. We also have the resources, tools and training to ensure our people have the confidence and ability to perform.
Local & Global
There are many aspects of our business which is run like a local company. We are masters of our own destiny, so we are flexible and can proactively move to take advantage of situations before our larger, less autonomous competitors. On the flip side, we are easily connected to our global Twinings business and our parent company, Associated British Foods, who support us in many ways including where they have expertise and international career opportunities.
History & Vision
We are very proud of our history. Twinings has been a successful business for over 300 years, and with that comes lifetimes of invaluable expertise and experience we can use to further grow our business into the future. Our clear vision, strong strategic direction and commitment to continued investment ensure our continued success over the next 300 years!
Flexibility & Accountability
We focus on output and delivery – our people are free to have flexible working arrangements, and in return, we trust them to manage their workloads. Personal accountability is expected, and our people thrive on taking responsibility for their actions and results. By mutual respect and commitment, we achieve together.
WORKING FOR US
At Twinings & Co, we value our people first and foremost. After all, without our team’s dedication to achieving outstanding results, where would we be? We’re all about mutual respect and admiration. And we’re committed to attracting and retaining the best, most talented people to work with us.

We believe we offer the perfect blend of challenging and rewarding roles, and a positive, fun work environment. Our commitment to our people extends to proactively co-managing their careers – we love to watch every employee grow and achieve their goals.
