Silicon Valley, CA (PRWEB) September 01, 2016
Silicon Valley startup of 100% Kona coffee k cups for Keurig k-cups brewers announced it landed a partnership with a leading distributor specializing in custom products and private label for the 100% Kona coffee k-cups, 100% Kona decaf k-cups, 100% Maui Mokka coffee k-cups and 100% Kau coffee k-cups. Pooki’s Mahi’s Kona coffee custom k-cups will be available for purchase on the distributor’s platform in Q4 2016.
Pooki’s Mahi kicked off vetting distributors with secure platforms that protect vendors from unapproved resellers in 2014. The original list of 50+ distributors was trimmed to no more than 12 distributors in 2015. Pooki’s Mahi approved six distributors to vet businesses and sell Pooki’s Mahi’s Kona coffee custom k-cups and private label Kona k-cups in 2016.
Pooki’s Mahi’s Founder/CEO Les Magsalay-Zeller says, “Pooki’s Mahi’s partnership with a leading distributor platform for Kona coffee custom k-cups and private label Kona k-cups started in late 2014. By mid-2015 Pooki’s Mahi started to build the new platform to handle custom k-cups and private label coffee k-cups. Pooki’s Mahi took a consumer approach to solving a business-to-business (B2B) challenge.”
“For 99% of customers who want a fully custom designed Kona coffee k cup the requirements are too high and a barrier to entry. The biggest issue was the lack of an end-to-end custom design at lower minimums for the Kona coffee k-cups in retail ready packaging. Larger k-cups manufacturers require higher minimum requirements at 12,000 to 25,000 k-cups to manufacture the k-cup only. Larger k-cups manufacturers does not include end-to-end custom design for all the approved bill of material components, uses non-sustainable single serve cup, charges for shipping and extra touches. Larger k-cups manufacturers will not speak to new customers if the customer cannot meet the minimums. K-cups manufacturers who claim “no minimums” are not transparent with the full cost. The quoted cost is $.39 to manufacture one k-cup. This does not include shipping the raw material, packaging, product labels, food ready pouches or product merchandising. Customer must pay and is responsible for shipping all raw material to the k-cups manufacturers facilities.,” explains the Silicon Valley executive.
