Through FY21, all Coles Express stores and several Coles supermarkets rebuilt or introduced their in-store coffee offer, pairing the new Eversys Cameo machine from Tiger Oceania .

On Wednesday the 2nd February 2022 Coles Group announced the three finalists and winners of the 2021 Coles Supplier Awards -Tiger Oceania , Coca Cola and Cadbury.

The winner has been announced and Tiger Oceania congratulate Coca Cola on taking out the award and to say Tiger Oceania were excited to be runner up for the Coles Express Supplier of the year award.

“To be in the running to actually win the award amongst some of the industry mega brands is recognition enough.” CEO George Miller said.

Tiger Oceania are proud in playing their part in presenting the highest quality award winning coffee with the most up to date automated coffee machine equipment available on the market.

To be acknowledged by Coles Group for being a major contributor in their Urban Coffee Culture coffee journey, installing 770 machines in 723 Coles Express stores, training and supporting during the pandemic, was more than enough recognition but to be a finalist as Supplier of the Year gives us AMBITION to do even better in 2022, which happens to be “The Year of the Tiger”.

“The customer feedback and results for our business with the new offer has been nothing short of amazing. We can’t wait to see what the future brings with Eversys Cameo.”

Thomas McNeish
Key Account Business Manager - Oceania

Coming on board in “The Year of the Tiger” ,2022, I look forward to the challenges that my new role has to offer.

In an industry which I have enjoyed previously as a business development executive, experiencing many achievements along the way, I cannot wait to contribute to the success of my new employer, Tiger Oceania .

After working for several years with a direct competitor, I have full understanding of where the commercial coffee machine market is going.

I have no doubt, joining Tiger Oceania Oceania is a smart move on my part and having a newly created role that includes making informed decisions for key accounts that will heavily rely on my knowledge-based experience is a perfectly timed investment for Tiger Oceania .

Also, working with a highly motivated team of professionals that aspire to grow the business model for the betterment of coffee quality and consistency in store, I relish the opportunity to contribute to a “What’s in the cup that counts” philosophy.


The opportunity for Thomas to nurture current Key Accounts as well as attract new ones in Tiger Oceania Oceania is crucial to the new sales focus within the organization.

The opportunity arose for Tiger Oceania to utilize the 15 plus years of skills and experience that includes logistics and operational management as well as supply and tendering negotiations in the highly completive area of commercial operations including restaurants, quick service restaurants (QSR), convenience and hospitality sectors.

Thomas will now play a key role in providing the Sales organization with the relationship and contact experience required to understand and manage the complexities of each corporate client utilizing the technology, data and overall support that Tiger Oceania offers.

Being a part of a newly created Sales team, Thomas provides Tiger Oceania with some extraordinary connections to offer best in class solutions to our key accounts and potential clients over the following years.
