M&S Food to supply Costa Coffee with sandwiches, salads and hot food from next year

Marks & Spencer is to provide food products to coffee giant Costa Coffee starting from Spring 2022, at more than 2,500 sites across its UK stores and drive-thru outlets. The new partnership has been hailed as a means to boost supply chain resilience while allowing M&S to reach new customers and locations, particularly families and commuters. 

Costa is set to sell more than 30 different M&S food items including sandwiches, salads, hot meal boxes and children’s food, with the new line adding to its existing range.

It’s also M&S’s latest effort to expand on the distribution of its food, following a deal with Ocado to share its goods online as well as testing some of its Simply Food convenience outlets in WH Smith stores.  

M&S Food managing director Stuart Machin said that: “This collaboration gives many more customers the opportunity to enjoy our wide range of delicious sandwiches, salads and snacks in over 2,500 locations across the UK – not just on the high street but in neighbourhood locations and retail parks’’.  

“Bringing together delicious, great quality M&S food and the nation’s largest chain of coffee shops is great for customers as it extends our reach and supports our strategy of making M&S more relevant, more often for families.” 

News of the collaboration comes after Costa has released its festive menu. Neil Lake comments: "Following the recent launch of our amazing new festive menu, we are delighted to bring further festive cheer by announcing a new food collaboration with M&S Food, launching next year’’.  

The new menu has yet to be released.
