A Slovenian micro coffee roastery, which roasts and packs coffee with its own brand, is currently filling coffee into bags manually. It is looking for manufacturers of technological solution for partially or fully automatic filling of coffee into stand up poaches coffee ZIP bags with valve to provide them the desired solution under manufacturing agreement.
The company was established in 2015 with the aim of offering new versions of coffee blends on the market in addition to the already established coffees, which represent a competitive offer to existing industrially roasted coffees of generic taste. In their products, they experiment with different types, flavors and ways of roasting coffee.

They are looking for companies (manufacturers preffered) that already offer developed and proven solutions for partially or fully automatic filling of grinded coffee or coffee beans into stand up poaches coffee bags with ZIP and valve, which will allow them to fill faster and above all accurately dose the amount of coffee (eg 150g, 250g, 500g, 1000g) into coffee bags. The company is looking for business cooperation on the basis of manufacturing agreement.
