A coffee chain has joined forces with a Westcountry farm to supply milk for 11 stores across Devon, Cornwall and Somerset.
Starbucks franchisee, part of the Amsric Group, has signed a new deal with family-owned dairy Trewithen Dairy in Cornwall to supply milk for 11 of its coffee shops across the region.
Store managers from Truro, Fraddon, Plymouth, Bideford, Torquay, Exeter, Taunton and Yeovil visited Trewithen Dairy at the start of June to meet the family and dairy team responsible for producing the milk.
Francis Clarke, managing director at Trewithen Dairy said: “This is a very exciting time for us. We are thrilled to be providing our quality milk to these 11 South West Starbucks stores.
“Our farmers and team at the dairy take great care to produce milk that is perfect for making coffee, so it is fantastic to get this support from Starbucks.”
Ricky Patel, director of Amsric said: “We’re delighted to partner with Trewithen Dairy as it is important we use the finest local milk available.
“We’re committed to working with and supporting the best local suppliers to give our customers an excellent experience where possible.”
The new partnership includes whole, semi-skimmed and skimmed milk, with plans to extend this to further stores in the South West of England this year.
