Kenco adds freshbrew

From this month The Kenco Coffee Company is adding a new freshbrew product to its sustainable farmed, ethically sourced vending range. New Kenco Sustainable Development Freshbrew is sourced entirely from coffee farmed on Rainforest Alliance CertifiedTM farms, and has been specifically blended to deliver a high quality, great tasting roast and ground vended coffee.
The Kenco Sustainable Development range, first introduced in 2005, contains only high quality Arabica beans, giving a rich, full aroma and a smooth, distinctive taste.
Kenco has worked with all leading vending machine manufacturers to ensure that clear gram throw recommendations, to deliver the perfect Kenco coffee, are available to operators.
The move complements recent launches of sustainably farmed PG tips* tea and Suchard hot chocolate**, which both contain product sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms, and means operators can now offer clients an extensive ethically sourced, sustainably farmed range for their vending systems.
The Rainforest Alliance is an independent international environment organisation that works with farmers to guide them towards sustainability, making a real difference to the lives of future generations. The Rainforest Alliance approaches sustainable farming in a holistic and balanced way by focusing equally on the environment, ethics and economics.
Nick Gilbert, Sales Manger of Vending at Kenco comments: “Kenco Sustainable Development, together with the PG tips and Suchard brands, gives operators the opportunity to meet the growing client and consumer demand for ethical credentials whilst delivering a superior quality, branded hot beverage experience. The addition of Freshbrew to the Kenco Sustainable Development brand completes the range giving operators the opportunity to offer the brand in all vending formats and provide a consistent brand across a number of systems.”
*Over 50 per cent of PG tips is now sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms
