Pooki’s Mahi announced today their 100% Kona coffee ECO Single Serves for K-cup® brewers earned the Frustration Free® and Ecommerce Packaging Certification after passing lab tests in ease of opening, 100% recyclable and less packaging waste and production protection. Customers can purchase 11 of Pooki’s Mahi’s 100% Kona coffee K-cups® on Amazon’s marketplace.
“A lot of planning went into Pooki’s Mahi’s new product line, ECO Single Serves for 100% Kona and 10% Kona flavored coffees. I spent a lot of time listening to Pooki’s Mahi’s customers, suppliers, manufacturing partners and my executive advisors. The new product line needed a box that protected the ECO single serves and serve as the actual shipper. The cost of the box needed to represent a minimum of 85% cost savings without sacrificing quality or slow down manufacturing,” explains Pooki’s Mahi’s CEO Les Magsalay-Zeller.
Les continues, “Pooki’s Mahi’s ECO Single Serve product line was a concept in 2012. It has taken nearly three years to launch 11 new 100% Kona, 100% Hawaiian and 10% Kona flavored coffees that is 97% biodegradable and individually wrapped.”
