Coffee retailer wants to sell coffee, milk, bread, eggs, meat from overseas
Coffee retailer Crave Coffee has said it wants to open its doors to overseas customers and sell products from its international supply chain.
It is in talks with a supplier of processed coffee from the US and European countries, a group that includes the Dutch company Nestle and Brazil’s Nestle-Coca.
Its plans have been welcomed by the Government and retailers, who are keen to boost their exports and boost the local economy.
But the retailer has said that while it would be a long-term process, it is confident of achieving its goal.
“We’ve been very clear that we need to do this for at least two years and that is why we are working with our suppliers, and hopefully we can get a deal done in the first quarter of next year,” Crave CEO Rob Hutton told the ABC.
The retailer also plans to open up its wholesale market in the US in the next year.
Mr Hutton said it was an exciting time for the company.
“This is something we’ve been looking at for quite a while and we feel very confident that we can do it in Australia,” he said.
“It’s a great opportunity to give back to the community, the country and our customers.”
Australia has some great coffee companies that produce some of the best coffee in the world and we’re hoping that we’re going to be able to do more and more of that in Australia.
“Mr Hettons hopes the company will be able offer coffee from all over the world.
