Tea merchant Ringtons brews up a six-figure deal

Newcastle-based tea and coffee merchant Ringtons has secured an annual six-figure deal for its beverages division in the Midlands


Tea and coffee merchant Ringtons has secured deals worth an annual six-figure sum to supply hotels across the Midlands with its products.

Ringtons Beverages division, an offshoot of the main business based in Newcastle, has been operating for more than 30 years.

The latest accounts signify the start of a period of growth in the Midlands for Ringtons which anticipates 10 more new contracts shortly.

Ringtons Beverages division supplies cafes, restaurants, hotels, and offices with tea and coffee as well as catering equipment and barista training.

Ringtons also operates a doorstep delivery service in the Midlands whereby customers are able to buy tea, coffee, edibles and seasonal specials from Salespeople on a fortnightly or monthly basis.

Ringtons does not sell its goods in traditional retail outlets, choosing instead to sell items directly to consumers online, through the company’s doorstep delivery service and via its new retail offering which sees the Signature range being sold by Ringtons Beverages’ suppliers such as hotels or cafes to their own customer base.

Ringtons is known for its delivery service with its products delivered to the doorsteps of over 260,000 customers across the UK by more than 200 delivery drivers.
