Revolver are launching a large range of tea and coffee with cooperative wholesalers Green City. Amongst other products, Green City are taking on Revolver’s Fairtrade, Organic and biodegradable tea bags, a range of Fairtrade and Organic coffees and Famous Blue Mountain coffee bags. Director Steve Gill said:
“It’s wonderful that we have been able to partner with Green City to expand our range of tea and coffee into Scotland and the North East. Cooperation is at the heart of what we do, so it’s important to us that we are able to work with organisations like Green City who share our values and ethics.
“This is an excellent opportunity for Revolver to showcase some of the best Fairtrade, Organic and Cooperative products our movement has to offer. It’s a testament to the work done by all the members of our cooperative, and another step in the right direction.”
Green City are a wholesaler of fine food and drink, based in Glasgow’s vibrant east end. They operate as a workers co-operative, democratically run by their 54 members, championing co-operative working as a successful alternative business model. Their range is entirely suitable for vegetarians and none of their range is tested on animals.
The announcement comes at an exciting time for Revolver, who have also partnered with Belgian cooperators ‘The Food Hub’ as well as launching a range of coffee in Central England’s flagship new store.
The recent expansion also comes in light of the Queen’s Honour received by Revolver’s CEO, Paul Birch, for his commitment to and work in Fairtrade. Paul has dedicated the last ten years to the Fairtrade® movement by sitting on numerous boards and by developing Fair Trade commodities under the Revolver World Cooperative brand for sale in Co Op stores.
Paul’s latest work is centred around the Revolver World Foundation, a charitable organisation which directly supports producer communities:
“Our cooperative sources 97% of all its products under Fairtrade agreements, but we want to go beyond Fairtrade in terms of our outreach to communities. For this reason, we have created the Revolver World Foundation. In partnership with like-minded cooperative societies we are looking to make positive social change in these rural communities, predominantly in Latin America, Africa and Indonesia.”
