Issue 91 - April 2019

Inside This Issue 

In this issue, we preview the second edition of the European Coffee Tea & Soft Drinks Expo (21-22 May 2019, Olympia, London), which as its new name suggests, has  broadened out to showcase more beverages.

Our features include some coffee talk, ice cream and milk alternatives, and with Caffè Nero’s recent acquisition of Coffee#1, ongoing developments at Patisserie Valerie, and Grind furthering its future expansion plans via crowdfunding, the café and coffee shop sector is certainly at the centre of plenty of business activity right now.
