FreshBrew, one of the largest private-label coffee and tea producers in the country, will invest $10 million into its specialty roasting and production divisions in Houston, Texas.
The investment will expand current roasting production and will fund extraction, bottling and canning capabilities, making FreshBrew one of only a few companies in the country to offer total end-to-end beverage solutions, according to company officials. Construction is currently underway and slated to be complete in early 2023.
"FreshBrew remains committed to providing our customers with the highest quality product and technology-driven services while continuously expanding our product lines and meeting increasing demand from our national clients," said Al Ansari, President and CEO of FreshBrew.
FreshBrew upgraded its existing roasters and purchased two additional roasters which will arrive later this summer. The company added 11 packing lines for a total of 25 to accommodate increased demand. FreshBrew’s tea lines expanded as well, with the addition of sugar to their production, to allow for sweet tea products.
The company also acquired an additional 25,000 sq. ft. of space, creating a combined total of 140,000 sq. ft. for the roasting plant and warehouse.
