NuZee, Inc, a coffee co-packing and technology company, has announced its receipt of a purchase order from Ethical Bean, a Fairtrade certified organic coffee roaster.
Ethical Bean uses a Bullfrog-powered facility designed to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) commercial interior standards and roasts its beans using a technology that reduces greenhouse gas emissions by over 80%. Beyond its local community outreach, Ethical Bean donates annually to Child Aid and Project Somos, organisations that work to improve life in Guatemala. Ethical Bean is the recipient of the 2014 Fairtrade Canada “Licensee of the Year” award.
Masa Higashida, NuZee CEO, stated, “Ethical Bean represents a strong addition to our growing co-packing operations as a premium coffee roaster with a strong footprint in major retailers including Walmart and Costco. As one of Canada’s largest suppliers of 100% Fairtrade organic coffee, Ethical Bean supports our commitment to sustainability and the creation of long-term market value for our shareholders. We believe NuZee is now uniquely positioned to continue scaling given our expanded manufacturing capabilities and stellar reputation as a leading co-packer serving 200+ brands across all formats.”
