In 2000, fair and ethically traded goods were starting to become mainstream for consumers, but not for caterers. In fact, there was no easy way for the foodservice sector to offer Fairtrade beverages because everything was geared towards the consumer market.
Our founders - contract caterers James Roberts and Peter Goodey - set out to change this when they created Peros. With a promise to always supply caterers with Fairtrade products if possible, we grew to become the largest independent distributor of Fairtrade to the foodservice sector in the UK. And, along the way, we like to think we helped Fairtrade become mainstream for foodservice.
Our integration in to the Bewley’s Group (from 1st April 2015) positions us as the second largest foodservice coffee company in the British Isles and this affords us greater opportunity to expand and add value to our customers. As a family owned business Bewley’s are encouraging us to retain the values of customer service and long term partnership that has made our business the recognised partner that it is today.
We look forward to working with you on the next stage of our journey.
