The Brew-It Group, which supplies a prestigious roster of UK hospitality groups and chains, including Malmaison Hotels, Hotel Du Vin; Caffe Ritazza, Upper-Crust and Patisserie Valerie, has agreed a deal with its manufacturing partners that’s designed to provide customers a soft landing in the even of a hard Brexit.
‘Our customers have spoken to us about their concerns over the potential disruption to the supply chain that a hard Brexit may bring’, Brew-It Group Commercial Director Steve Penk, (pictured), said. ‘We’ve done our best to allay those fears by getting together with our manufacturing partners to put in place a safety-net that would override the uncertainties surrounding Brexit. I’m delighted to say that they were only too happy to help.’
The Brew-It Group markets the interests of La Spaziale UK, FBT UK and DMA UK and was established to represent premium quality specialty coffee equipment for the UK HoReCa market.
‘The deal supports our UK hospitality group customers on two levels’, Steve said. ‘Firstly, we’ve guaranteed continuity of equipment availability in the UK, and secondly, the planned price freeze allows for accurate forecasting in terms of equipment and service costs. It means ‘business as usual’: we can remain focused on delivering growth in our sector regardless of what happens with Brexit.
The Brew-It Group has already begun to increase UK stock holding
‘Good suppliers owe a duty of care to their customers and frankly, the assurances we’ve received from our suppliers are a huge relief to us because they ensure continuity of service to those UK businesses that rely on Brew-It Group in respect of their beverage offers’, Steve said. ‘The events of last week alone highlighted the lack of political certainty surrounding Brexit. There’s confusion and potential concern around every corner. To be fair, without a crystal ball this is the best we can do for our customers!’
The Brew-It Group has already begun to increase UK stock holding and has secured further warehousing capacity at its head office in Chesterfield to do so.
