San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 5th, 2016
Silicon Valley startup Pooki’s Mahi of 100% Kona coffee pods, Hawaiian coffee single serves and custom promotional products announced today it launched a second pilot to test tea single serve pods flavors in the single serve cup manufacturers and distribution centers. The pilot tests are focused on single serve manufacturing, feedback from existing brand advocates and distribution centers fulfillment capabilities.
Pooki’s Mahi’s Founder/CEO Les Magsalay-Zeller explains, “Pooki’s Mahi completed the first pilot to prune the number of tea single serve pods 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 single serve cups.”
The Silicon Valley entrepreneur says, “Pooki’s Mahi’s very lengthy pilot process tests single serve manufacturers capabilities to consistently produce custom pods 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 coffee maker manufacturers produce 100% Kona coffee single serve pods and tea single serves 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 single serve pods flavors launching into several variety packs. “
Pooki’s Mahi has a very lengthy process to assess suppliers and vendors to support the tea single serve pods 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 single serve 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 coffee maker / manufacturer(s).
Pooki’s Mahi’s existing customers identified an initial set of flavors and decaffeinated tea(s) they would like to see in tea single serves and the tea pods variety pack bundles. Pooki’s Mahi’s custom promotional products customers provided insight to the individual packaging designs for their online retail channel. Pooki’s Mahi’s private label single serve customers added insight to improve sales operations, transparent pricing and cup material.
There are several specific goals Pooki’s Mahi’s pilot test(s) aims to accomplish. The first goal is to confirm which of the tea flavors are easily produced in the Pooki’s Mahi’s single serve coffee maker / manufacturers machines. The second goal is reassess the distribution centers’ fulfillment capabilities and the single serve manufacturing cup components. Single serve coffee maker / manufacturers will compete for the business per Pooki’s Mahi’s lengthy request for proposal (RFP).
Pooki’s Mahi estimates the new tea single serve pods will launch late 2016 or Q1 2017 in select sales channels and in limited release.
