Eco-friendly coffee company wins Waitrose listing

01 March 2016

Cornwall-based manufacturer 918 Coffee Co has secured a retail contract with Waitrose.

The company’s Eco-Roast range of coffees, which is endorsed by the Eden Project, will be available in stores from March.

Justin Cornelius of 918 Coffee said:  "We have worked tirelessly over the last two and a half years on our Eco- Roast project and invested heavily into making it a reality for everyone to enjoy. To see our Eco-Roast coffee being distributed in Waitrose stores across the UK with the Eden Project endorsement is a great achievement."

Tracey Smith, Eden Project Commercial Manager, said: "As an educational charity and visitor attraction, Eden is always searching for sustainable solutions and clever uses for waste streams.

"Our Rainforest Biome is the world's largest greenhouse and in it we grow coffee as an exhibit. It is a natural fit to partner with an innovator and coffee roaster such as 918. We are very excited at the prospect of this new range now being available through Waitrose stores across the UK."
