Centra in coffee deal

CONVENIENCE store retailer Centra has signed a deal with Bewleys to supply full roasted coffee beans to its 463 stores.

Centra, which sells over eight million cups of coffee a year, or over 160,000 cups a week, has rolled out the new full roast coffee as coffee consumption and sales remain relatively high.

The volume of takeaway coffee has increased by 38pc while the average cups of coffee purchased per day per person in Centra stores has increased from 1.5 to two cups.
