World leading coffee roaster, Lavazza is determined to achieve strong growth across the Australian market with its roasted and ground blends and the A Modo Mio capsule system. Lavazza Australia has taken over the company’s business operations in Australia from its former distributor, Valcorp Fine Foods.
Sales, marketing and supply chain management operations will be supported by a locally-based finance team and headed by general manager, Nigel Meakins (pictured).
With the creation of a new company, Lavazza Australia Pty Ltd, the business builds on the relationship with Valcorp Fine Foods. Lavazza has had a presence in Australia for over 30 years through the company’s long-standing partnership with Valcorp.
As a result of this growing success, Australia is one of the key countries in Lavazza’s international development strategy. Lavazza and Valcorp have agreed to a significant change in their relationship with the establishment of a wholly owned Lavazza subsidiary in Australia.
The Lavazza Blue machines and capsules for the office market continue to be distributed through the Blue Pod Coffee Co.
