Today as ever, it is vital we are always looking to expand and improve our network of suppliers. It is vital that they share our ethos of sustainability, reliability and of course the best flavour! So, it is with great pleasure we can announce today our new partnerships with Rocco Brands and Quarterhorse coffee.
Quarterhorse Coffee are a growing family business based in the midlands. From their premises in Birmingham, they source, grind, blend and supply cafes and coffee shops throughout the UK. Purchasing at prices averaging three times that of Fairtrade, Quarterhorse support small growers and co-operatives in Central America.
Founded by Nathan & Ameeta Retzer in Oxford, the first Quarter Horse Coffee shop gained a reputation for being one of the best in the country. They deliver coffee that is ethically sourced and of the highest quality, prioritising building lasting relationships with farmers and positive development at origin.
Quarterhorse are long term supporters of the Women Coffee Producers program, an initiative in Guatemala to reduce gender inequality in coffee growing regions. Every cup also supports saving heritage coffee varietals. Forging new frontiers of price transparency, customers will have the opportunity to try exciting new coffees while proceeds are donated to the UNICEF Yemen Appeal.
Our partnership with Roc Co Brands brings unique pasta dishes to our customers, with a 5% of the proceeds from every plate going to charities such as The Evelina London Children’s Hospital and the Ronald McDonald House.
During the early stages of the world-wide pandemic of COVID-19, everyday items like pasta were in short supply and food parcels were being offered to the most vulnerable, but producers couldn’t keep up with the demand.
Pasta Per Tutti ‘pasta for everyone’ is the Rocco Pasta range that consists of penne, fusilli, spaghetti, and fettuccine, they have created an authentic range of pastas, taking into consideration affordability, availability, and most importantly continuing to help and support the British people and the most vulnerable.
Our first few Rocco Rocks events have been a fantastic success, creating a real buzz through client sites. There will be many more to come over the next few years.
