We are a social enterprise based in Co. Down with a mission to create quality roasted coffee that helps empower people stuck on the fringes of society through social initiatives here on the island of Ireland and through partnerships with sustainable living programs across the world!


The vision for “Fringe” came from countless interactions with people around the world who have expressed and experienced a lack of belonging. These people are on the fringes of society, bursting with potential, yet often overlooked simply because they don’t fit into certain societal standards. We began to wonder, how can we help bring these groups on the edges of society back into the centre? Fringe seeks to be a steady resource that empowers and encourages the marginalised to live in the fullness of who they were created to be. 


Our journey begins as a coffee roasting company, but we anticipate to one day expand into a cafe that hosts social and creative events in the Newry area of Co. Down. All of our beans are ethically sources, and a portion of our coffee sales go toward supporting our partners, the Imbizo Foundation, in Durban South Africa.
