Since Thomas Atkinson started the "Grasshopper Tea Warehouse" in 1837 some things have changed for J. Atkinson & Co. Both location and name have changed but what has not changed is a commitment to providing the finest tea and coffee.
As one of the original companies contacted as part of the MNEMOS project J. Atkinson & Co were approached to trial the Enterprise Cultural Heritage training material developed by the project.
Company owner Ian Steel is about to embark on a major new development taking on the next door premises to extend the shop and develop a whole new "Atkinson‟s Tea & Coffee Heritage & Innovation Centre" which Ian likens to a walk- through website.
He found it struck a lot of chords with his own experiences and offered some new insights as well.
