Kimbo Espresso Italiano increases UK turnover by 55%

It distributed 161 tonnes of coffee in the UK during 2015, a 35% rise year-on-year, with the UK now in the top five countries in terms of coffee beans shipped from Naples by the company.

In 2015, Kimbo put in place a number of projects aimed at further strengthening its market share in the UK, where it is already served in over 800 pubs, restaurants and shops.

One of the most successful was the partnership with Jamie's Italian, where the 46 restaurants across the UK can choose from a bespoke coffee drinks menu created by Kimbo. This partnership called for Kimbo to train over 800 bar staff and floor teams in coffee craft and Neapolitan coffee culture.

"We are very satisfied to see that the UK market is responding so well to our coffee", said Angus McKenzie, managing director at Kimbo UK.

"These results underline our efforts in producing a unique blend, and we are glad to see that this is appreciated throughout the country. We expect to further strengthen our position in the UK market across 2016, and thanks to the success of our free barista school, we have been helping to develop a number of baristas master their craft."
