Jamaica Blue opens latest cafe
Owned by Foodco Group – which also operates the Muffin Break brand – Jamaica Blue operates in more than 160 cafes globally.
The chain said its menu at the new cafe on level five of the hospital’s main block reflects the brand’s business-wide focus on healthy food prepared fresh inhouse daily along with premium coffee sourced and roasted by Jamaica Blue.
As part of its local expansion in New Zealand, Jamaica Blue has been working on developing an all-new range of healthy recipes called the ‘Signature Harvest Collection’.
“While the new menu will appeal to a wide range of tastes, it is also specifically relevant to a health facility environment,” said Jon Hassall, operations manager, Jamaica Blue.
“Using delicious, natural ingredients, together with the Auckland DHB we’ve developed nutritionally balanced recipes that will empower consumers to eat well and enjoy the experience.
“Coupled with a contemporary, relaxed setting and some of the best coffee around, the new cafe is particularly suited to the needs of the environment in which it’s operating.”
Founded in 1992, the first Jamaica Blue cafe opened in New South Wales, Australia. Today the franchise operates inline cafes and kiosks in a range of diverse markets including the UK, the UAE, China, Malaysia and Singapore as well as throughout Australia.
