Lost Sheep Coffee, now the largest dedicated speciality coffee roastery in Kent, is expanding to larger premises from February 2020 in order to fulfill consumer demand.
Lost Sheep Coffee is credited with shaking up the staid commercial retail coffee bean and capsule industry. Since its small beginnings in 2012, Lost Sheep Coffee has seen dramatic growth, most recently with the launch of its plastic free 100% compostable Nespresso compatible capsules in spring 2019, they have truly disrupted the coffee capsule market and plan to do the same with their hand roasted coffee beans.
The capsule range has been a game changer for the industry and is now stocked in select Morrisons stores since November, with 2020 set to see further expansion with Morrisons throughout the region. In addition to the multiple shops currently selling Lost Sheep Coffee capsules and beans, sales performance has been extremely strong with Lost Sheep Coffee capsules performing above the industry average for capsules sales. “We are looking to expand our wholesale operations at a gradual rate of expansion into the supermarkets and additional regions in order to ensure the quality of service to our customers and partners, and our new larger roasting premises in Whitstable will enable this to happen now at an accelerated rate”, says Lost Sheep Founder Stuart Wilson. “The new premises will be SALSA accredited and house Kent’s first dedicated speciality coffee training facility providing experience days, tastings and training of our wholesale partners, which will be key to our expansion this year.”
The continued popularity of Lost Sheep Coffee has led them across ‘the pond’ in recent months to introduce their plastic free compostable capsule range to over 20 New York stores. The eco-credentials of Lost Sheep Coffee will be adorning shelves at a time when New York is about to become the next US State to ban single use plastic bags.
“We feel 2020 is going to be a year where Lost Sheep Coffee goes from local company making a difference, to a national company making a big difference” said Wilson “We have received exceptional interest in our imminent investment round and have now decided to make the investment round public, meaning anyone can invest and come on the Lost Sheep Coffee journey from spring 2020” For more information about investing in Lost Sheep Coffee visit https://www.lostsheepcoffee.com/invest-in-lost-sheep or email firstname.lastname@example.org
