How grocery chains purchase Premium Guatemala Coffee
A Guatemala Company has changed how small grocery chains can purchase Guatemala Premium Coffee with the advantages of higher margins, less inventory, and greater product freshness.
Guatemala City, Guatemala August 12, 2020:
Ethical Fashion Guatemala (EFG) announced today the expansion of their brand “On-Demand Roaster Guatemala Coffee,” targeted for small independent grocery chains.
The business model is simple:
EFG worked with Guatemala Coffee Growers and Roasters to develop the logistics for providing US grocery stores with freshly roasted coffee that can be ordered on Monday and delivered to any location in the US by Thursday.
The advantages for a small, independent grocery chain are increased profit margins from having no minimum order, no excess inventory, and no brokers or wholesalers since buyers are dealing directly with the coffee growers or directly with Guatemala Roaster.
EFG provides shipping logistics and takes no profit from the coffee supplier or the grocer. EFG provides the exporting services under contract with international shipping service DHL.
The average retail price of Premium Arabica Coffee across the US sits at the lower end at $12.00 for a 12-ounce package.
For bulk sales, the cost is $10.99 per pound—and these prices are for mixed, lower-end coffee beans. However, the EFG model provides grocers with a 25% – 35% profit margin on coffee that is Premium-rated, High Mountain-grown, single-origin Arabica.
