Buencafe, 100% Colombian Freeze Dried Coffee, Has Grounds to Celebrate its Great Success

OU Kosher Staff

Since 1927 the National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia, a non-profit organization, has represented the interests of more than 500,000 coffee growers in different areas through the commercialization process. One of the steps taken to increase the awareness of 100 percent Colombian Coffee® was to develop one of the most advanced plants manufacturing Freeze Dried Coffee in the world. Buencafe®, formerly Freeze Dried Coffee, has been helping not only the most demanding customers in the industry to build brands and products for more than 35 years, but works to improve the livelihood of the community of coffee growers.

When Buencafe® was established in 1973, one goal was clearly defined: To be a leader in the industry thanks to our process and products. Today, we proudly count on the most recognized international standards such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO18001, Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP), British Retail Consortium (BRC), International Food Standard (IFS), Business Alliance for Secure Commerce (BASC), Accredited Organic Certifications by the Japanese Agricultural Standards (JAS), European Standard CE2092, by the National Organic Program of United States (NOP) and by the Soil Association; also the Fairtrade Certification (FLO), Rainforest Alliance Certification and Kosher Certification by the Orthodox Union (OU).

This last designation has special meaning, as it recognizes that our 100 percent Colombian Freeze Dried Coffee is a natural product manufactured according to OU standards, using only coffee and water; and in the manufacturing process we use the proper equipment and cleansing procedures for that coffee to be preserved, to be of high quality and to be designated OU Kosher.

All these certifications provide us with a solid basis to guarantee that more than 90 brands and 60 countries may work and enjoy nothing but 100 percent Colombian Freeze Dried Coffee.
