Union Hand-Roasted Coffee has been named as one of 10 “ones to watch” in the prestigious Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100. The accolade recognises businesses with exceptional growth potential.
Speciality coffee roaster Union has enjoyed a stellar 2016. Not only have sales once again risen year on year, Union’s workforce has nearly doubled and the company has also expanded its roastery in East London. The site now includes a training facility called Campus where Union offers courses for baristas, as well as roasting classes for coffee shop owners.
The announcement from The Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 comes just weeks after Union wonThe Best European Roaster for 2016 at the European Coffee Symposium for the third year running.
Union Hand-Roasted Coffee co-founder Jeremy Torz says: “2016 has been another fantastic year for Union and it’s great our growth potential has been recognised by such a respected institution. These are exciting times for us and we are looking to continue our growth trajectory over the coming year and beyond.”
