Our youngest Westminster MP Mhari Black enjoys some Coffee Conscience

The opening of the new facilities at University of West of Scotland- Paisley campus proved popular for students and staff with the visit of Princess Anne. Also attending was local Westminster MP Mhari Black who has her constituent office directly opposite the university. Fantastic to see a Mhari enjoying a cup of Coffee Conscience with staff and students.

After months of transformation at University of the West of Scotland (UWS) – Paisley, Princess Anne officially opened the new atrium building and centre of excellence at the Paisley Campus. The new extension incorporates modern educational facilities, meeting space and a premium ground floor Coffee Bar serving a full range of quality coffee, frappes, and premium sandwiches and bakery products in a stunning modern setting overlooking the main campus. Best wishes to UWS and the continued success in taking educational excellence to the next level.

Winter storms – climate change

18

No matter how we evaluate the weather, the recent storms and quantity of rainfall records across the country demonstrate the continual changes to our environment and climate change. Our heart goes out to the many communities affected by these tragic events and the gallant efforts of volunteers, army, and local authority helping to support in the clean-up operations. The cliché ‘once in a life time event’ seems a distant memory.  Whilst houses can be repaired and furnishings replaced, we must not forget that homes and memories have been destroyed.  Hindsight is a great thing but more needs to be done to prevent further events from becoming disasters and destruction beyond repair.  With rainforests further being destroyed for urbanisation, we need to further focus on their protection and allow greater forestation. With a world expecting further population growth from 7.3 billion (2015) to 9.7 billion (2050), where does this leave the sustainability of our planet, forestation, wildlife/eco systems and our food resources. In the modern western world where we already have Foodbanks, is this the start of greater concerns for the future.

Hot Beverage Tender Award

mmblog09

Coffee Conscience are delighted to announce our selection as a nominated hot beverage supplier to the TUCO organisation which co-ordinates the supply agreements for catering organisations within the universities, colleges, and public sector groups nationally. The tender process commenced in May 2015 and after 2 tender submissions and a final evaluation day at Reading University in September, we received the announcement last week. This is an amazing journey for our company, it`s market offering, and ability to deliver client requirements for this sector and on the first attempt entering a tender which had many national/multi-national companies and well-known high street brands tendering. Our inspiration to support Fairtrade in developing countries and support local community groups will hopefully be further enhanced with the tender award. We wish to thank our customers, suppliers, and end user consumers for their support over the years.

Monin – baristas on form

mmblog07

Coffee Conscience promised we would put the Monin barista onto our blog following their amazing recipes to produce added value drinks. Sampling a range of chocolate enhancing syrups and chilled drinks, there seemed no end to their skills, presentation, and added value drink creation. With Pumpkin Spice selling very well into Coffee Conscience Customers, new taste experiences of Bubble gum and Candy Floss were sampled for the 2016 range. Top marks to Monin and their staff for their passion and dedication for their brand.

A novel way to present coffee – only in Italy

mmblog04

At the recent catering exhibition in Milan, one supplier went the extra mile to display their equipment upon the original Fiat 500. There were many examples of Italian design and flare and fantastic to see a greater range of Rainforest Alliance and Organic products on display. With sustainability and energy conservation high on manufacturer’s agenda, it was encouraging to observe many companies taking their existing range to improve these factor for future customer demand.
