San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 10, 2016
Silicon Valley startup Pooki’s Mahi of 100% Kona coffee pods, Hawaiian coffee single serve and custom promotional products announced today it improved and selected flavorful teas in its single serve variety pack prior to launching the new line of tea pods to select online retailers.
Pooki’s Mahi conducts several pilots (end-to-end product tests) with existing customers. The goal is to improve the overall single serve tea product line and to hand select award-winning flavorful loose-leaf teas already in pyramid tea bag form for Pooki’s Mahi’s tea pods variety packs. Pooki’s Mahi’s tea variety pack is focused on tropical flavors infused with high quality oolong teas, black teas and green teas.
Pooki’s Mahi’s Founder/CEO Les Magsalay-Zeller explains, “Pooki’s Mahi completed the first pilot to prune the number of single serve tea flavors. Pooki’s Mahi’s initial tea catalogue contained up to 30 different flavors across five to six tea varieties. Existing customers help drive Pooki’s Mahi’s product launches. Pooki’s Mahi’s customers requested a variety of single serve teas, decaffeinated tea pods and oolong tea cups.”
The Silicon Valley entrepreneur says, “Pooki’s Mahi’s very lengthy pilot process tests cup manufacturers capabilities to consistently produce custom single serve teas using approved bill of material components, sustainable single serve cups, food grade pouches and an ecommerce approved ship-ready box. Pooki’s Mahi’s owns and manages all suppliers’ relationships. Single serve manufacturers produce 100% Kona coffee pods and tea pods per Pooki’s Mahi’s specifications and graded against a strict First Article Inspection (FAI) process. Pooki’s Mahi’s second pilot will prune and finalize the number of tea flavors launching into several variety packs.“
Pooki’s Mahi has a very lengthy process to assess suppliers and vendors to support the single serve tea product line. Immediate return on investment (ROI), consistent delivery and how easy Pooki’s Mahi’s distributors’ fulfillment centers receive products like Pooki’s Mahi’s 100% Kona coffee pods are important. Mistakes, slowing down Pooki’s Mahi’s operations or supply chain teams and hyper-aggressive requests to land bigger orders are not favorable to supplier(s) or single serve manufacturer(s).
Pooki’s Mahi’s tea flavors variety packs works in single serve coffee maker brewers. The initial tea variety pack will focus on oolong tea pods and decaffeinated teas. Pooki’s Mahi’s oolong tea pods will combine tropical and citrus flavors with traditional sweet oolong teas.
