Miko Coffee, a subsidiary of Euronext Brussels listed coffee service and plastic packaging specialist Miko, has just signed an agreement to supply Puro Fairtrade coffee to around 150 National Trust sites. These include the world-famous White Cliffs of Dover and the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland.
The National Trust is a non-governmental organization that looks after more than 350 historic buildings, gardens and monuments, and manages the conservation of a large number of nature reserves and archaeological sites in the United Kingdom. The Trust has 14 million paying visitors a year.
After an intensive and successful test phase, Miko Coffee was given the green light as the National Trust’s preferred partner. The contract with the National Trust will give the Puro brand unprecedented exposure.
“By winning this contract, Miko Coffee is now beginning to reap the benefits of the gradual construction over many years of a national coffee service organization throughout the United Kingdom,” explained Frans Van Tilborg, c.e.o. of the Miko Group. “The National Trust’s attractions are, after all, spread across the entire country. The National Trust singled out our sustainable Puro coffee not only because of its refined flavor and Fairtrade status, but also because we use a percentage of Puro coffee’s sales to buy rainforest in Ecuador, and the Puro Reserve is currently the size of around 3,000 football pitches.”
