After graduating from BA (Hons) Arts & Event Management [now BA (Hons) Creative Events Management] in 2004 Jim Cregan discovered ready-to-drink iced coffee during a year travelling around Australia and decided to bring the product back to the UK

He devised a recipe with his sister and business partner, Suze, and, after selling their first carton of Jimmy’s Iced Coffee in Selfridges in 2011, the brand has gone on to be a supermarket staple, stocked in the likes of Waitrose, Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Whole Foods. We met up with Jim at his company’s HQ in Christchurch to find out more about his company and his time at AUB.
