Private Label Coffee

Private Label Coffee
Welcome. Welcome. Welcome. In this post we’re going to chat a bit about private label coffee and how Current Commodity Systems can help you start a private label coffee program of your own or transition to a new private label coffee supplier. We’ll provide a basic overview of what private label is and then dive into sourcing, processing and food safety - the basic backbones of any private label coffee program from seed to cup, and beyond.

Let’s start with the basics. What does “private label coffee” even mean? Oddly enough we rarely get asked this question. And trust us, we wish we did! Most coffee brands and customers assume that starting a private label coffee line is a catch-all term used to describe a product with your brand or logo on it it. Well, that simple explanation couldn’t be farther from the truth. Yes, private label coffee products feature the brand, logo and visual identity of their respective owner(maybe that’s soon to be you!) ; but that’s just the start. Creating a private label coffee product or program is an intense but rewarding journey that requires patience, time, and significant capital. If you’re reading this and simply want to put your coffee brand logo on a bag, white label coffee, coffee contract manufacturing and coffee co-packing might be a better option. Luckily, we can help with those products as well and turn your dream into a reality. Are you ready to start a private label coffee program? Keep on reading!

Food Safety

Amazing Sourcing? Check? World class roasting? Done. Food safety and quality control? We take it VERY seriously. Most new brands and customers fail to confirm that their private label coffee supplier is SQF certified and has GMP(good manufacturing practices) protocols in place. Most don’t even know what these are! Don’t make the same mistake that unexperienced brands make - food safety and quality control should never be overlooked. Always do your homework.

If a private label coffee company doesn’t have an SQF certification or GMP’s in place, you and your brand lack control, transparency, and most importantly, the ability to ensure that your customers are buying and consuming a safe product free from risk. Mistakes do happen and recalls are real. If not properly handled, they can erode brand trust and cause financial pain that is irreversible, fast. Can you trust your current or prospective supplier to immediately react with an action plan on your behalf? Can you confirm that your supplier has a recent food safety audit? Have you every toured a private label coffee roaster’s facility? Your answers to these questions matter and are part of smart decision-making when you choosing a private label coffee partner.
Hundreds of brands and companies, small, large and everything in between, trust and rely on Current Commodity Systems to produce their private label coffee products because of our SQF certified, 3rd party-audited, food safety and quality control programs.

If we shared any more, we’d be giving away our secrets! Starting a private label coffee program is complex and requires expert guidance. Current Commodity Systems is here to help and we look forward to learning more about your needs. Let’s brew something great, together.
