Percy Pig

The popular sweet treat will be available in Costa Coffee stores across the UK from Thursday

Costa Coffee will start selling Percy Pigs and Yumnuts from 3 March as part of its deal with Marks & Spencer.

The high street coffee chain first announced M&S would be supplying its cafés with over 30 food products last November.

In addition to the popular sweet treats, the partnership will see Costa sell a variety of breakfast items, such as hot boxes and porridges, lunch sandwiches and salads as well as kids’ pizzas.

Many of the 33 M&S Food items are from the grocer’s vegetarian and vegan Plant Kitchen range as Costa looks to expand its healthy food offering.

“The launch of the Costa Coffee Now Serving M&S Food menu is an exciting first step in our collaboration with M&S Food,” said Costa’s UK&I COO Adrian Cook. “As we look to continue crafting new coffee experiences, we are building a new food offering that will provide an even greater range of quality and great-value food for all customers.”

The Costa Coffee Now Serving M&S Food menu will be available in over 2,500 Costa Coffee stores across the UK as well as via click & collect.

Costa is also adding some items to its own range, including a vegan burrito meal box, a bacon mac and cheese toastie, and a new hot cross bun.

The move to expand its food-to-go offering is set to help Costa tap the recovering footfall levels in city centres and travel hubs as the country emerges from the pandemic.

At the same time, the collaboration will allow M&S to showcase its growing food range as the retailer ploughs ahead with its transformation strategy.

“M&S Food is famous for great-quality food on the go at fantastic value and from Thursday, even more customers will be able 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,” said COO and M&S Food MD Stuart Machin.

“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.”
