Marston’s becomes third customer to secure a self supply licence

Brewery and pub owner Marston’s last week became the third customer to be granted a self-supply licence by Ofwat.

Head of group facilities for Marston’s, Andy Kershaw (pictured), said: “This is a great opportunity for Marston’s, enabling us to drive efficiency and cost whilst working towards reducing consumption through our managed sites and breweries. It also gives us the platform to trial innovation and become an active partner in the market.”

Marston’s, which operates more than 1,600 pubs, bars and lodges, follows in the path of fellow hospitality giants Greene King, which secured its self supply licence in March, and Whitbread which secured its licence in September. All are being supported through the process and in operating in the market by Waterscan.
