On 3 September 2018, Birmingham will be welcoming around 100 exhibitors and 3,000 visitors from all corners of the globe with one thing in common – a passion for tea and coffee.
As the only international b2b coffee and tea show in the UK, the event will be a fantastic opportunity for all Tea & Coffee World Cup followers, old and new, to access this booming market. With the event coming from Singapore, its setting in 2017, the UK is the number one European location for the coffee and tea sector, as chosen by the industry itself.
A main theme of the event this year will be sustainable packaging, with talks and demonstrations from the Paper Cup Recovery & Recycling Group, Union Papertech and Ahlstrom on their work to create, promote and foster the use of eco-friendly cups and tea bags. Tea & Coffee World Cup is looking forward to showing some of the sustainable innovations in one of the most important topics sweeping the world this year.
