The Edinburgh Tea and Coffee Company has been awarded a contract to serve tea and coffee at The Scottish Parliament. Kez visited the Portobello-based company to learn more.
The firm, which has been producing artisan tea and coffee in the city since 1812, will be creating and supplying unique blends to the Parliament.
Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body Member, Kez Dugdale, said:
“I’m really pleased that The Edinburgh Tea and Coffee Company, a small, local business with high quality products, will be supplying tea and coffee to the Scottish Parliament.
“Caffeine fuels a lot of Holyrood’s work, so it’s a real accolade for the ETCC to supply the Parliament.”
Kevin Moore, sales director with the Edinburgh Tea and Coffee Company, said:
“I am delighted with the new supply of Edinburgh Tea and Coffee to The Scottish Parliament. As a company, Edinburgh Tea and Coffee strive to maintain traditional standards and take great pride in our reputation for quality products. Securing this high profile connection through Sodexo, re-enforces the excellence for which we are known. We are very much looking forward to supplying The Scottish Parliament.”
Edinburgh Tea and Coffee was established as the Melrose Tea Company in Edinburgh’s Canongate, near the site of the new Parliament building.
The new products have been crafted and blended for the Parliament by Edinburgh Tea and Coffee Company, which oversees each stage of production. ETCC is a member of the Organic Food Federation, Fair Trade and the Rainforest Alliance and adheres to their associated ethical standards of operating.
