Passing Of A Dear Friend

SD Bell & Co are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of our friend Seamus Close. Seamus was Company Secretary and Financial Controller of SD Bell’s from 1971 until 2015. He served the Company with professional attention to detail and loyalty, and his loss is felt deeply by the Firm and its employees. Directors Barry Bell, Robert Bell, Jill Bell, William Johnston, and all SD Bell’s employees would like to send our thoughts and prayers to Deirdre and the Family at this time.

TEA EDUCATION

The 'Kestral Team' at East Belfast's Mitchell House School visited SD Bell's today. We are helping them with their Business Studies project, in which they get to know the tea packing process. Everything from the production cycle of sourcing, shipping, blending, packing, quality control and marketing functions.

All pupils were a joy to have! Until next time.

BioWeb Coffee Bags are here!

Are you tired of dull tasting coffee in the office? Well, we have a brilliant new product!

Single serving coffee bags. Working in the same way as a tea bag. Pop the bag in a cup, add water just off the boil, brew for 3-4 minutes.

The coffee bags are made from BioWeb, a material that biodegrades naturally in domestic compost. In case you needed another reason to love them.

Pop on over to this link to get your hands on some and let us know what you think of them.

Subscriptions On The Rise

According to a recent report by Royal Mail, consumer trends show the 'Subscription Box' market is forecast to soar by 2022. With lives becoming busier be that longer working hours or ferrying children to their respective activities; consumers are taking the opportunity to shop online during any free moment they can find.

We at SD Bell's have stepped up to the plate to ensure our customers can benefit from a weekly, fortnightly or monthly subscription. Managing Director Robert Bell encourages customers to sign up to the tea and coffee subscriptions as they, "enable everyone to taste coffees they may never have chosen to try.”

There is something to cover all tastes and budgets. Should you be a coffee connoisseur you can choose from a medium or a dark roast subscription. Perhaps a tea enthusiast? Then the choice of a Natural Black Tea, Flavoured Black Tea or Green & Oolong subscription will keep you going.

Keep an eye out for our event-based subscriptions allowing you to sign up a loved one for a short period of time.
