Notes Coffee Roaster gets organic foodservice accreditation

Written by: David Foad
Notes Coffee Roaster has been granted certification to sell organic coffee to foodservice outlets as well as its 12 premium cafe bars dotted across London.

Ali Anderson, sales manager at Notes Coffee, said: “This is a significant achievement for our business and gives our systems and procedures an exceptional seal of approval.

“It’s vital that our customers can have confidence in our service and products and everything we do. Being awarded a certification from the Organic Food Federation is further endorsement of our capabilities and commitment to deliver coffee excellence - every serve.

“There is huge growth and potential in the organic coffee market at the moment, and as this trend continues to storm the nation, speciality products are proving more popular with consumers.

“This is an area we will continue to focus on as we move forward with our organic coffee range. But ultimately, it all comes down to quality. Consumers want products that look great, smell great and more importantly, taste great, too. Our coffee products do just that, and much more.”

Achieving the Organic Food Federation certification gives Notes the seal of approval that its coffee products - specifically its Ethiopian Mohammed Ali and Dambi Uddo single origin - are now produced in accordance with organic standards which comply with the UK organic regulations.

It also provides caterers with added confidence in the quality, ethics and sustainability of its coffee products. 

To comply with the accreditation requirements, Notes has changed how it operates its roastery. Within the production facility, for example, organic coffee has been separated from non-organic products and systems - using dedicated green plastic buckets for organic coffee distribution.

Procedures are also now fully documented during roasting, giving caterers total reassurance in terms of quality and consistency. 

Caterers have the flexibility to choose coffee in 250g and 1kg bags, as well as home compostable pods, which are Nespresso compatible. All Notes coffees are premium with a minimum 84 points on the speciality grading scale.

Notes says it offers a ‘premium end-to-end solution to help caterers add value, drive margins and bring the quality of their coffee offer in line with their high food and service standards’.
