Lavazza serves up three-year Roland Garros deal

Coffee brand Lavazza has become an official supplier of the French Open tennis tournament.

The Italian company, which celebrates its 120th anniversary this year, adds the Roland Garros event to its existing partnerships with Wimbledon and the US Open.

The new three-year deal will see more than 370 Lavazza coffee machines installed around the Roland Garros site in Paris, while the brand will also stage product tastings and other on-site promotional events throughout the two-week tournament.

Lavazza has been an official supplier of Wimbledon since 2011 and of the US Open since February. It also supplies a number of other elite tennis events around the world.

The world’s seventh largest coffee company, Lavazza currently generates a yearly turnover of €1.3 billion, with around half coming from outside Italy. The new partnerships with the likes of Roland Garros and the US Open are part of the company’s strategy to grow its overseas sales to around 70 per cent of its total revenue.

This year’s French Open, the tennis season’s second grand slam tournament, runs from 24th May to 7th June. The reigning singles champions are Rafael Nadal and Maria Sharapova.
