Drury Tea & Coffee Company goes green

first_imgLondon-based Drury Tea & Coffee Company is giving its customers the option of buying its roasted coffee beans in 12kg biodegradable hessian sacks rather than 10 x 1kg foil bags in a cardboard outer. The company says the move will help the environment and reduce the cost of the product by 20%.Drury’s director Marco Olmi said: “In recent years, the industry has moved towards the use of foil bags, largely in order to extend the shelf life of coffee beans. That means 10 foil bags plus a cardboard outer.””By going back to hessian sacks, the Company saves money on packaging and other overheads, which it is able to pass on to its customers.”Customers opting for the hessian sack will get a cheaper price per kg.Its Reale espresso coffee blend, for example, has a list price of £92 both for the 12kg hessian sack and the 10kg foil bag option. The bulk sacks will only suit those businesses that use “sufficient volumes of coffee to avoid shelf life problems” and put an effective stock rotation system in place. Drury added that as it roasts its coffee to order, “it is delivered with the maximum possible shelf life”.last_img read more

Manchester United star: ‘I will celebrate’ if I score against former club

first_img1 Memphis Depay Memphis Depay will not temper his celebration if he scores for Manchester United against his old club PSV.Depay will return to the Philips Stadion for the first time on Tuesday since his £25million move from PSV to Old Trafford.The Dutchman spent nine years at the club, rising through the youth ranks before becoming a first-team star.The club holds a special place in the 21-year-old’s heart, but that will not stop him from celebrating with all his might if he finds the net in Eindhoven during Tuesday’s Champions League group stage encounter.“For me it’s a game, so if I score I will celebrate,” the United forward said.“I have respect for PSV but I am a Manchester United player now.”With that kind of ruthless attitude, it is easy to see why Depay was top scorer in the Eredivisie with 22 goals last season.That haul helped PSV to their first title in seven years, but this year he is yet to find the net for United in the Premier League.Louis van Gaal substituted Depay at half-time in Saturday’s 3-1 win over Liverpool.Depay earned a reputation as something of a hot head at times during his time in Holland, but he did not lash out at Van Gaal for taking him off at half-time.“I think my reaction was good,” he said.“I will improve in training, keep my head up and work on it and I think I can do better in games.”You can listen to PSV v Manchester United in the Champions League live on talkSPORT on Tuesday evening from 7.45pm BST.last_img read more
