Kerry gets into the coffee trade

[ May 15, 2019   //   ]

Kerry Logistics Network has branched out into trading with the establishment of Kerry Coffee (Hong Kong) in partnership with Italy’s illycaffè.

Kerry Coffee will be the sole distributor of illycaffè’s complete product range in Hong Kong and Macau, including coffee machines, capsules, coffee beans, and other coffee-making equipment and accessories.

Kerry Logistics has provided integrated logistics solutions for illycaffè since 2017 and as the sole distributor of iperEspresso coffee machines and capsules in Hong Kong.

Robert Berger, executive director for fashion and lifestyle at Kerry Logistics (Hong Kong), (pictured) said: “The establishment of Kerry Coffee and the consolidation of illycaffè’s full product range under the new company will enhance the cost-efficiency of the sales and distribution operation, and enable illycaffè to increase its market share and brand recognition in Hong Kong and Macau.”
