Sucafina – a leading sustainable Farm to Roaster, Swiss-based coffee company – announced the launch of Sucafina NZ Ltd., establishing their New Zealand-based trading team and warehouse spot positions in Auckland and Christchurch.
Sucafina New Zealand brings many advantages for local roasters, including microlots in 20-kg Stacks and access to exclusive coffees sourced from Sucafina’s vertically integrated supply chain. These coffees will be available for shipping nationwide. Roasters can easily access all their options by making an account on Sucafina’s website, where they can see live quantities for all warehouses, view their own position and find marketing materials.
Sucafina brings decades of quality and trade expertise. Their strong origin operations span from East Africa to South America. Existing positions in nearby Australia, Shanghai and Hong Kong mean more choice for New Zealand roasters, including mixed pallet shipping.
