SIBA Green Business of the Year 2020, Purity Brewing Company, and award-winning pub operator The Culpeper Family Hospitality Group (TCFHG) have announced a new business partnership this week, joining forces in London.
Both businesses came together through a mutual desire of driving quality and making a difference in the marketplace, using their collaboration as a greater force for good.
First founded in 2012, with the acquisition of The Culpeper Pub in Spitalfields, by co-founders Nico Treguer and Gareth Roberts, TCFHG has grown into a small group of boutique premium pubs across London led by Managing Director Sandy Jarvis. With an estate of four characterful pub hotels, steeped in history, TCFHG leads the way in premium hospitality, offering only the very best food, drink and overnight stays in the capital.
As part of the long-term training and business partnership, Paul Halsey, CEO and Co-Founder of Purity Brewing Company, will join the Board of TCFHG. Commenting on the new business partnership, Paul Halsey said, ‘This is a fantastic opportunity for Purity to strengthen our presence in London.’ He added ‘I’ve long been an admirer of Nico and his team’s professionalism and constant drive for excellence. With their diverse group of pubs, each with their own personality and charm, they never fail to impress me with quality of service and offering’.
Both businesses have recently set about on a journey to become Certified B Corporations, balancing business purpose and profit. B Corp certified businesses are vigorously assessed on their impact of decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community and the environment. When successful, both businesses will join a community of leading businesses and brands, driving a global movement of leaders using business as a force for good.
Nico Treguer commented on the new collaboration ‘Strengthening our partnership with Purity felt like an obvious next step in our journey for The Culpeper Family. As a long-standing customer of Purity’s, we have always shared the same high quality, sustainability and community values’. Nico added ‘Combining this shared ethos with Paul’s [Halsey] extensive knowledge and expertise in hospitality, we are excited to work a lot more closely together for years to come’.
As part of the deal, The Culpeper Family Hospitality Group will stock a range of Purity Cask, Keg and packaged brands.
