Established family bakery business, Fisher & Donaldson, has announced a new partnership with fellow Fife company, Modern Standard Coffee, to bring quality Fair Trade coffee to its customers across Fife and Dundee.

Now in its fifth generation, Fisher & Donaldson is headed up by sisters Jade and Chloe Milne, alongside brother Ben.

Modern Standard Coffee is owned and managed by coffee expert Lynsey Harley.

The two Fife companies recognise the importance of pairing quality coffee with delicious baking and have partnered up to supply Modern Standard Coffee in the bakery’s seven takeaway and café sites across St Andrews, Cupar and Dundee.

Chloe Milne, retail director for Fisher & Donaldson said of the collaboration: “Our customers love our cakes, and especially paired with a good cup of coffee.

"We were blown away by Lynsey’s work ethic, her commitment to sourcing the finest Fair-Trade coffee, and Modern Standard’s ethos of ‘great coffee for everyone’.

"As a family, women-led business, we are thoroughly committed to working with other similar Scottish businesses, so it felt like a fantastic fit to bring Modern Standard’s coffee into Fisher & Donaldson. And to launch this partnership today on International Women’s Day is just perfect.”

“As well as serving Modern Standard’s coffee in our bakeries and cafes, we are also thrilled to be launching a Coffee Tower Blend in retail packs so customers can make a delicious cup of coffee, with a taste of F&D, at home.”

Lynsey Harley, CEO of Modern Standard Coffee added: “It has long been a goal of mine to pair Modern Standard Coffee with Fisher & Donaldson’s delicious bakes so I am very excited to see this partnership come to life.

"Quality coffee is my passion and to bring it together with cakes baked by artisan bakers is the perfect match. I look forward to hearing how Fisher & Donaldson’s customers enjoy their new coffee. I can confirm it pairs just beautifully with a tasty fudge doughnut!
