Corporate History

SOSRO is the pioneer of packaged ready-to-drink tea in Indonesia. The name SOSRO is taken
from the name of the founding family, namely SOSRODJOJO.
In 1940, Sosrodjojo family started their business in a small city in Central Java called Slawi. At
the time, the product sold is dried tea with the brand of Teh Cap Botol and it was distributed
only around Central Java.
In 1953, Sosrodjojo family started to expand their business to enter the capital city Jakarta to
introduce Teh Cap Botol products that were already very popular in Central Java.
The journey to introduce the Teh Cap Botol product was started by doing CICIP RASA
(product tasting) promotions to several markets in Jakarta.
The promotion was conducted by entering the markets and brewing the
Teh Cap Botol tea product on the spot. When the tea was ready, it was
distributed to people in situ. This promotion was not too successful as
the distributed tea was too hot to drink whilst the brewing process took
too long, making those who would like to taste it impatient to wait.
The second method was used: tea was not brewed on the spot, but carried already brewed in big
pans to the markets using open trucks. Again, this was successful because some of the tea
spilled on the way to the market, mostly to the bad, pockmarked road condition in Jakarta at the
Then, an idea sprang up to carry the brewed tea in cleaned bottles. It turned out that this method
was quite interesting for the customers because it was practical and ready to consume without the
need to wait for the tea to be brewed.
Then, in 1969, the idea to sell ready to drink tea in bottle was
f0rmulated, and in 1970, a bottled tea plant of PT SINAR SOSRO was
established, the first ever of bottled ready-to-drink tea plant in
Indonesia and the world.

The bottle design for Tehbotol Sosro has changed three times:

1. First Version
Released in 1970 with the brand of TEHCAP BOTOL SOFT DRINK SOSRODJOJO
2. Second Version
Released in 1972 with the brand of TEH CAP BOTOL (with smaller size for CAP so
that people would see more of TEH BOTOL). The phrase SOFT DRINK was taken out,
while TEH BOTOL was written in red and white to symbolize that it was a product of
Indonesia. The name SOSRODJOJO was shortened into SOSRO within red circle logo.
3. Third Version
In 1974, the third change took place. The bottle design was not like the first and second
version. Bottle design got new shape and brand name was changed into TEHBOTOL
SOSRO. The third design was launched in the wake of the establishment of PT. SINAR
SOSROs first plant in Cakung, Jakarta.
SOSRO business has so far been run by three SOSRODJOJO generations, namely:
