New Sustainable Café Concept Opens At Cork Airport
New sustainable café concept Blue Bird Coffee Roasters has been opened by KSG Catering at Cork Airport.
Blue Bird Coffee Roasters champions sustainable initiatives and uses ethically-sourced speciality grade coffee beans direct from Columbia. Its coffee is roasted daily and stored on-site in reusable sealed containers, lowering its transport carbon footprint.
All of the disposable packaging offered on the premises, including cups, lids, straws and cutlery, is compostable and bio-degradable, while crockery is set as the default option to help reduce the generation of waste packaging.
In a statement on Cork Airport's website, the airport's head of aviation and commercial business development, Brian Gallagher, said, "We are delighted to see the launch of our new café offering, Blue Bird Coffee Roasters, making Cork Airport Ireland's first airport to host an on-site roastery. Our unique food and beverage offerings, from the airport's 'Taste of Cork' specialities to now our very own freshly-roasted coffee, ensures that passengers choosing to fly from Cork are in for a treat the moment they enter the terminal."
