Fox Powering the Lions visit to Jersey

There’s no better fuel than Fox’s leading brands of tea and coffee…don’t believe us? Just ask the British and Irish Lions!! Did you know that many of the visiting rugby players also consider themselves as coffee aficionados, owning their own independent coffee shops?

The British Lions have always had a sweet spot for caffeine, with many ex-players opening coffee shops upon retirement from the sport. Brad Barritt established his own popular coffee brand, with coffee lovers Shane Williams, Mike Phillips, James Hook and Lee Byrne opening their own coffee shop to raise money for charity whilst getting to sample some great coffees. It’s always been viewed as a great way of bringing people together and creating lasting friendships with the Lions themselves commenting that our coffees are among the best they have tasted!

We hope that their visit to Jersey will be no different as we offer up the best blends to create long lasting relationships and the opportunity to swap stories over a brew or two. Only the very best will do for our visiting athletes and those spectators at the Jersey Reds clubhouse as Fox are proud to be supporting the club with the supply of our flagship coffee machine, coffee beans from Molinari, tea from Birchall along with own leading water coolers. It is an honour to be welcoming these athletes to our small island and as one of the island’s largest wholesaler suppliers, we are on hand to ensure to make sure all those finer details are taken into account.


Sean Dunne , Operations Manager at Jersey Reds , has later said: “We are extremely grateful to the long term support of Fox Trading, who have been a sponsor of the rugby club for a few years now and also assisted us in preparations for welcoming the British and Irish Lions. So many factors have had to be considered in order to make the Lions trip a success and to give them the best possible welcome we can as a community, and it is a credit to Fox that their service is always timely, efficient and delivered with the highest standard of customer care. We enjoy partnering with Fox as a proactive and solution-based wholesale provider and look forward to working with them in future years.”

If you were lucky enough to be able to view the Lions training sessions and sample our teas and coffees, please let us know what you think.
