  • Now we're 15!

    2468 is 15 today

    2468 was founded in 2003 by Donal Garrihy and Pete Smyth.

    We’ve grown through a combination of organic sales and strategic acquisitions in Ireland and in the UK. Our mission has been to provide workplace wellbeing, and the services we have developed – in coffee, snacking, water and washroom – provide the foundations for a strong employee experience.

    We’re 15 now. Full of promise with a strong vision for our growth. We have a great team, some with us since the early days as well as more recent recruits joining us from organisations we’ve merged with along the way.

    Current European Food Safety Authority recommendations are that we drink 2 – 2.5l of water each day1. There’s a growing body of evidence that hydration levels can affect performance levels, particularly in visual attention and mood2.

    This is nothing new; health professionals have been giving advice on water consumption as part of a healthy lifestyle for decades now.

    Ferns Coffee

    When you're refreshing a brand, what you keep matters as much as what you choose to lose. So, we approached the refresh of our precious coffee brand, Ferns, with care.

    Ferns was established in 1893 as a single roastery in Covent Garden, London. The original founder was emigrant Ludwig Fern, who seized the opportunities presented by Victorian London, and used his passion for the craft of coffee sourcing and roasting, to meet the growing demand for quality.
