Tchibo is no longer active in Russia.

Largely unnoticed by the public, Tchibo has withdrawn from Russia. The sale of the company there took place several weeks ago, as the coffee company now explains.

The leading German coffee roaster Tchibo has completely abandoned its Russian business due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The company there had already been sold at the beginning of July, a spokesman told Deutsche Presse-Agentur in Hamburg on Friday.

The company had offered only coffee products in Russia and had already stopped supplying coffee at the beginning of the war at the end of February, he said. "The roasting of Tchibo coffee at a contract manufacturer in Russia was terminated and all marketing activities as well as online presence stopped."

Tchibo, with its more than 11,000 employees worldwide and sales of more than 3 billion euros, says it is the roasted coffee market leader in Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic as well as Hungary and is one of the leading e-commerce companies in Europe.
