Kenco announces new equipment partnership

The Kenco Coffee Company has announced a strategic partnership with vending and dispense equipment design and manufacture company, DarenthMJS.
Kenco’s extensive range of table top in-cup equipment is to be sourced from the respected UK-based manufacturer, in a collaboration aimed at ensuring Kenco’s consumer and client needs continue to be comprehensively met while maintaining Kenco’s in-cup range position at the forefront of vending.
Kraft Foods, parent company of The Kenco Coffee Company, introduced the concept of in-cup vending back in the 1970s, bringing the dual benefits of convenience and greater choice to clients and consumers. Since then, Kenco has continued to bring in-cup equipment innovation to the market, most recently with the introduction of Kenco K-bar, which allows consumers to choose between whole bean-to-cup coffee and branded in-cup products through one machine.
Now Kenco will add Darenth’s machines to its comprehensive equipment range, featuring the Kenco brand and working in harmony with Kenco’s entire range of quality branded products.
Justin Cook, Kenco’s Commercial Director says: “Working with DarenthMJS allows us to offer the very latest in-cup equipment suitable for a wide range of sites. Our companies have worked together for several years on an informal basis and we have always had great respect for Darenth’s innovation, design and technical expertise. We look forward to a very successful working relationship”.
Mark Simpson Managing Director of DarenthMJS, comments: “We are very happy to be working with Kenco, which offer an excellent range of in-cup drinks that complement our equipment perfectly. This new partnership is an exciting development for our business and we are totally committed to driving this range of products forward. Kenco’s focus on delivering quality brands and products, combined with our own market leading innovations in equipment design, is sure to be a winning combination.’
