Kenco Coffee, formerly known as the ‘The Kenya Coffee Company’ established itself in the UK, back in the 1920’s. The Kenya Coffee Company was set up by a group of retired coffee planters. It became a highly fashionable coffee house. As they expanded they also started selling coffee to country estates advertising in exclusive publications such as Tatler, Country Life and the Times.
After the war the well established food merchants John Gardiner (later Gardiner Merchant) bought The Kenya Coffee Company and opened branches all across London and other parts of the UK. It is believed that The Kenya Coffee Company became to first Coffee chain in the UK.
The Kenya Coffee Company changed its name to ‘The Kenco Coffee Company’ during the 1960’s as coffee supplies from Kenya started to decrease. Kenco branded coffee started to do very well and this was noticed by the big hotel group Truste House who took it over. It was taken over again by Cadbury’s in 1972, and again in the mid 1970’s by premier foods. It is now in the hands of General Foods which took it over in 1987.
