Sabine joined Costa in 2015 as the cake/sweet buyer. She changed roles in July to become the UK&I Category Manager for Beverages. She is responsible for the category management for all -handcrafted and packaged drinks and works alongside the Global Innovation Team to translate global innovation to the UK market. Sabine has done many things for the Foundation including the festive cake showstopper which raised £74k, managing a team for the 2017 Three Peaks event and running a cookie activity which raised enough to fund an entire nursery school in Vietnam. “I lived in the Philippines with my parents as a teenager and was lucky enough to be able to be sent to an International school, but at the same time I experienced poverty first hand in a 3rd world country. Now being a mum myself of course I want to give my children the best possible education. Being lucky enough to be able to do that I wanted to expand this to parents and children less fortunate than us in those parts of the world where coffee is grown.”
