Costa Coffee has teamed up with UK supermarket chain Marks & Spencer to launch a new food offer across its UK coffee shops. The collaboration will see Costa serve a range of 30 M&S Food lunch options, including sandwiches, hot meals, and salads, from 2022.
According to Costa, the revamped menu will build on the coffee chain’s existing food menu and will also include M&S’ vegan friendly and gluten free Plant Kitchen and Made Without ranges.
“As we continue to craft new coffee experiences across our stores, Costa Express machines, and Costa coffee in a can and at-home offer, we are bringing together two of the very best brands in a UK-first to launch the Costa Coffee Now Serving M&S Food range. This collaboration with M&S Food will build on our existing food range and help us fulfil our ambition to become the first choice for customers buying food and coffee on-the-go. We’ll use our joint expertise to develop a food experience of the highest quality, freshness and value – all served with a perfectly crafted Costa coffee,” said Neil Lake, Managing Director, Costa Coffee UK&I.
“Bringing together delicious, great quality M&S Food and the nation’s largest chain of coffee shops is great for customers as it extends our reach and supports our strategy of making M&S more relevant, more often for families,” said Stuart Machin, Chief Operating Officer and M&S Food Managing Director.
