Lisburn coffee firm in joint venture with Chinese business group

Lisburn-based firm Pure Roast Coffee has reached a deal with China Resources, one of China’s biggest business groups, that will see it develop the company’s coffee business across China.

Martin Symington, managing director of Pure Roast Coffee, said “It is an immensely exciting development for us… a tremendous showcase of our premium coffee in China, now the world’s most dynamic marketplace, a market with a rapidly developing coffee culture.”

Mr Symington acknowledged that it took a lot of hard work to get the deal done. He said, “I’ve benefited enormously from the advice and support of Invest Northern Ireland both here and in China, along with the legal input from MTB Solicitors in Belfast.”

MTB Partner, Aleric Turtle, said, “This is an exciting time for Pure Roast Coffee. I wish them every success going forward”.
