Grape Expectations (a member of the Favourite Group) has been in the import and distribution business for over a decade, in which time it has developed an island-wide reach having forged strong relationships with stockists across the modern trade, HORECA (Hospitality Industry), and general trade sectors. The Grape expectations mantra of being tenacious in approach and agile in delivery has enabled it to build a strong portfolio of successful brands from both home and overseas.
Soul Coffee began its journey in 2014, to be an ethical coffee brand with the simple goal of providing everyone with access to great tasting coffee, sustainably grown locally. The concept of the Soul Coffee Cold Brews was inspired by a theme to transport the drinker to the beautiful sandy beaches and glistening waters of Sri Lanka.
Soul Coffee is crafted using rich and smooth 100% Arabica coffee and ethically grown in the misty highland regions of Sri Lanka by small-holder farmers. Locally sourced creamy fresh milk, cold brew coffee, and a touch of flavour and sweetness is infused to create a fresh twist to iced coffee – a refreshing and indulgent drink to quench your thirst under the sunshine of the tropics.
Soul Coffee partnered with Grape Expectations to leverage their years of distribution experience, and wide clientele covering island-wide supermarkets, hotels and cafes. Soul Coffee CEO Rinosh Nasar said, “We believe Soul Coffee and Grape Expectations are like-minded in our approach and therefore we see a lot of synergy in working together.”
Dilip Bhambhwani, Director at Grape Expectations commented saying, “We are excited to partner with Soul Iced Coffee Beverages as it’s a unique product and also Soul Coffee is a known name in every household of Sri Lanka. With our vast infrastructure at Grape Expectations, we are sure to do justice in the distribution of this Brand and ensure Soul Iced Coffees also become an equally popular beverage.”
Soul Coffee Cold Brews are available to purchase at all leading supermarkets as well as selected stores across the country. Soul Coffee can also be bought direct online at zipsip.lk.
