15th June 2022 @ EVOCA

Prime Point, Mark Binner Way, Pensnett Trading Estate, Kingswinford, DY6 7TJ


Featuring the AVA Annual General Meeting, this will be a fantastic ‘In Real Life’ afternoon hosted by EVOCA UK.


Timings: Noon to about 4:30pm

  • Welcome coffee
  • Spilt in to three groups to cover:
    • Martin Colston – Launch of the AVA 2021 Census
    • David Llewellyn & Adrian Pratt – AVA Update:
      • A 20p – 25p point of purchase single use cup levy is on its way! Ireland have introduced legislation to impose a 20 cent consumer levy on every single use cup at point of purchase; Scotland has just reinstated their ‘Expert Panel on Charges and Other Measures’ (EPECOM) to review how to introduce cup charges; Defra has proposed a mandatory take-back scheme but ‘reserved the right’ to impose a single use beverage cup charge; Northern Ireland’s DAERA are considering an outright ban or a 25p per cup charge; Whilst Wales have included the option in their ‘Beyond Recycling’ proposals.


  • EVOCA UK Coffee options – and coffee expertise. PLUS, hands-on Barista. With prizes for best (and worst) Latté art and best presented cup of coffee.
  • Then – all together for the AVA AGM
  • Finally – A Hog Roast & Refreshments
  • To book email Rowell@the-ava.com or call 03300 883 267

Free to all AVA members
