Under the new partnership Greene King's Metropolitan Pub Company is rolling out the coffee offer in all its 60 plus sites.

Greene King's local pubs director, Karen Bosher said: "We're thrilled that all our Metropolitan Pub Company pubs will soon have Paddy & Scott's coffee available for all our customers. We're constantly seeing increasing demands for quality coffee and we're delighted to be able to offer such a premium product.

"Pub Partners managing director, Wayne Shurvinton, added: "We're also delighted that the partnership extends to our pub partners division so we can offer bespoke coffee support for all our leased and tenanted partners to consider."

Scott Russell, CEO of Paddy & Scott's, said: "The last 10 years really have been a golden time for the craft coffee industry with double digit growth but we've always said when pubs start to take coffee seriously it will engage new audiences by allowing sites to tap into extended trading hours and takeaway coffee."

The company had a 38 per cent growth in sales in the last six months of 2019 and has opened a new HQ and concept café Ambition House at Ipswich's Waterfront.

The firm has direct trade with its suppliers and has opened a school project in Kenya at the Muchomba Farm coffee grower.

It now has 150 branded concessions and produces more than 50,000 cups of coffee a day.

The coffee company began in 2007 with just two people and today supplies major supermarkets Byron and Gusto as well as Greene King.
