VISTA, Calif., Oct. 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — NuZee, Inc. (OTCQB: NUZE) (“NuZee” or “the Company”), a specialty coffee company and a leading U.S. single serve pour over coffee producer and co-packer, announced today that it will cease all sales of plastic-encased single serve coffee capsules by January 1, 2020. For the nine months ended June 30, 2019, these products accounted for less than 10% of NuZee’s total sales.
“This decision is based on several factors, including the growth of the Company’s single serve, pour over co-packing operations and our commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship,” said Masa Higashida, NuZee’s Chief Executive Officer. “We believe that our single serve pour over coffee products offer superior flavor and taste compared to the plastic-encased, single serve capsules compatible with single cup coffee brewing systems. We also expect to introduce 100% biodegradable or recyclable single serve, pour-over options by July 2020, making them the most environmentally conscious single serve product on the market.”
