The Pod Pack story starts in Europe, where our founders saw an emerging trend and recognized an upcoming need in the U.S. market.
In 1996, industry veterans Bill Powell and Tom Martin observed that food service providers in Europe had begun to use single-serve espresso pods, and they leapt at the chance to deliver simple, convenient single-serve coffees and teas back home in the United States. From our humble beginnings in a 400-square-foot location in New Orleans, Pod Pack has grown to be a full-service co-manufacturer of single-serve coffee and tea pods and cups, now operating a modern facility spanning 75,000 square feet in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Through it all, we’ve maintained a friendly, family-like culture with a shared vision: to offer high-quality products and create profitable solutions for our customers, while providing the best customer service in the industry.
Innovation is critical to Pod Pack’s position as an industry leader. Every day, our team works to engineer new single-serve solutions, challenge traditional boundaries and industry conventions, support ongoing R&D, and seek creative new opportunities. In the lab, we analyze grind particle size, roast colors, bulk density, extraction rates and total dissolved solids to create a better, more satisfying coffee and tea experience. We also work with brewer manufacturers to understand capabilities and develop fresh, convenient and consistent products for seven market channels. And we do it all with a company-wide focus on sustainability and social responsibility.
As the coffee and tea industries grow, Pod Pack continues to find opportunities to address our customers’ needs with high-quality finished products and exceptional service. Every order puts our reputation on the line — and we welcome every chance to solve your challenges, whether you’re a roaster, distributor or broker. Our team’s expertise and service focus has earned the respect of the industry, our partners and our community. If you’re looking for customization through blends, packaging, private labeling and more, you’ve come to the right place. Let us know what you need and discover the Pod Pack difference.
