Mumbai: Shares of Tata Global Beverages rallied more than 10 percent on the bourses Tuesday as investors cheered the company's deal with US coffee giant Starbucks to set up cafes in India.

A similar trend was seen on the NSE, where the scrip jumped by 10.52 percent to close at Rs 108.20.

"This is positive news for Tata Global Beverages. Starbucks is a successful franchise and the joint venture is a win-win for Tata Global Beverages," Ashika Stock Brokers Research Head Paras Bothra said.
Under the deal, US-based coffee chain Starbucks will set up cafes in India through an equal joint venture with Tata Global Beverages.
