Our Work With Greggs

A strong coffee offer is key for Greggs to maintain its dominant position in the food-to-go market. But the scene has changed dramatically since 1998, when we first started working together. This means continually evolving the offer to keep it relevant is key – so we created the Greggs House Blend and implemented a Total Coffee Solution that would evolve with the UK food to go market.
