We serve over 2,400 people daily for students in catered halls as well guests and colleagues, using coffee machines spread over the largest single site campus in the UK.

Our key account manager Guy Hodge (National Account Manager for Education) has been the key driver in maintaining the consistency, high level of quality and service we expect from our suppliers.
