NuZee, Inc. (OTCQB: NUZE) (” NuZee” or “the Company”), a good-for-you company focused on building beverage brands that offer functional and nutritional benefits, announced today that it has undertaken the expansion of its existing production facility in Vista, California to accommodate the growth of its Drip Cup line of functional gourmet coffee sold under the Coffee Blenders® brand name.
As part of the expansion, NuZee will add two new Drip Cup co-packing machines and upgrade process automation. These enhancements are expected to more than double annual single serve pour-over Drip Cup production, improve reliability, and lower costs. The project is scheduled to be completed by the first part of 2018.
“This expansion reflects our success to date, as well as our confidence for continuing growth in 2018 and beyond,” said Masa Higashida, NuZee’s Chief Executive Officer. “As announced earlier this month, NuZee has been granted the exclusive North American rights to utilize NASA Corporation’s proprietary Drip cup packing machinery brand FUSO in the manufacturing of our Coffee Blenders line of Drip Cup coffee products. This technology, which manufactures the majority of the 2.3 billion Drip Cups used each year in Japan, provides us with a significant competitive advantage.”
“Once this project is completed, we will be better able to manufacture our Drip Cup products in a more efficient and cost-effective manner,” said Travis Gorney, President and COO of NuZee. “We are committed to making the investments necessary to grow our business and support our valued clients.”
NuZee manufactures and sells its Drip Cup line of single serve, pour-over functional coffees: Lean Cup® (for weight loss), Think Cup® (for cognitive performance), Relax Cup® (for stress reduction), Active Cup® (for a pre-workout boost of energy), Nude Cup® (100% Arabica coffee with no function), and Matcha Cup tea. The Drip Cup method is a common and popular brewing method in Asia. This portable technology, ideal for campers, college students, outdoor enthusiasts, and coffee-lovers in general, allows consumers to conveniently craft quality gourmet coffee virtually anywhere.
