What can we do for you?

A soothing, rejuvenating or refreshing cup of tea and coffee are amongst the most in-demand food and drink items in hospital environments.

Ringtons can advise on the ingredients needed to offer top quality tea and coffee at a reasonable price to visitors and staff; whilst making free high-quality tea and coffee to patients in your care a viable business option.

Our team of experts can also advise on the most appropriate way to prepare and serve hot drinks whether it’s to patients’ beds, in sit-down cafes or restaurants, or in take away form from kiosks, shops or vending machines.

Ringtons holds a place on the ESPO tender framework for speciality fine food and drink (74).  The tender framework ensures we comply with ESPO’s pre-agreed terms and conditions, have required experience and we offer an appropriate range of goods and services for public sector organisations.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Ringtons Beverages for Business on the roll out of Ringtons tea across all of our wards.  As a healthcare operator we are committed to making sure patients are as comfortable as possible while in our care and the food and drink we serve is a big part of this. Ringtons is a much-loved local company and we are pleased to be able to offer patients a quality tea which is made just a few miles up the road.  Ringtons was able to offer us a first-rate Fairtrade tea which will help towards our ambitions of achieving a Silver award from the Soil Association.”
