02J67699 copyWith Di Bella Coffee coming under fire for anti-gay remarks, Griffiths Coffee, Australia’s oldest coffee company, are urging more businesses to embrace diversity and support the LGBTIQ community.

“In this day and age Australian businesses need to be less narrow-minded and move to a more inclusive community, and it saddens us that some businesses are still not being at the forefront of diversity” says Managing Director Peter Patisteas.

“Here at Griffiths Coffee we are proud to embrace diversity, not only employing and supporting gay and lesbian staff but also engaging and supporting the wider LGBTIQ community,” Patisteas continues. “We were so happy to support the likes of JOY FM radio in Victoria, participating in fundraising for them as well as developing a custom coffee specifically for them. We are currently developing our marketing plans for the next 12 months and have included fundraising, promotional and advertising activities with the gay community.”

Griffiths Coffee are urging more businesses Australia wide, and specifically those in the coffee industry from high level roasters down to cafes, to be more inclusive of the LGBTIQ community. “We don’t judge the way you drink your coffee, and no one should judge anybody else based on their sexuality,” says Patisteas.
