“The addition of the new coffee roasting plant marks an exciting time for us."
- Dino Olmi, ceo, Drury Tea and Coffee.
Currently it produces over 16 different espresso blends, many blended and single-origin coffees and 120 different types of tea for a broad customer base from top Michelin starred restaurants to hotels and coffee shops.
“The addition of the new coffee roasting plant marks an exciting time for us. It enables us to increase our capacity and gives us the benefit of being able to access new markets and increase our market share,” said Dino Olmi, ceo of Drury Tea and Coffee.
‘Moving up a gear’
“Things are really moving up a gear this year, as we have just secured further funding from Lloyds to purchase a second pyramid tea bag machine from Japan to increase our tea production further.”
Andrew Watts, relationship manager at Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking, added: “Investing in new machinery is a great way for a business to increase services and help day-to-day operations run much more smoothly.
“As a nation of tea and coffee drinkers, it’s important to us that we support our local companies and help this industry grow.
“Drury Tea and Coffee is a great example of an ambitious and highly successful family-run company that started out as a small venture.”
