Family-run bistro team up with Ringtons

A Stokesley bistro has teamed up with tea and coffee provider Ringtons to become the first food and drink outlet in the town to sell their range of teas and coffees.

Family run Howard’s  is entering its eighth year in business with a major makeover, and the new commercial partnership allowing it to expand its menu to offer Ringtons’ Columbian blend coffee beans, premium hot chocolate, syrups  and a range of speciality teas including English breakfast.

The bistro’s owners chose to partner with the Newcastle-based company thanks to its North East roots, family-run heritage and diverse product range.

Owner of Howard’s, Graham Howard, said: “We strive to constantly offer customers a consistently high standard but also something different.

“Ringtons has a reputation spanning over a century and we share the same ethos, being family-run and quality-focussed.”

Craig Lazenby, area sales manager for Ringtons, added: "Howard’s is proud of its local sourcing and the fact all of our tea, infusions and coffee are produced in our own factory in the north east of England means customers are getting fresh drinks within weeks of it being blended or roasted and packed which ensures a great drink. 

“We’ve some exciting plans in the pipeline for future collaborations with Howard’s and we look forward to building our relationship with the team and customers in the coming months.”
