BATON ROUGE, LA -- Pod Pack International, a manufacturer of single-serve coffee and tea, has expanded into a new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility here.
 
The fully operational 74,000 sq. ft. facility more than doubles Pod Pack’s manufacturing footprint and provides ample capacity for future growth. With the expansion, Pod Pack has the capacity to produce more than a half-billion single-serve coffee and tea units annually.
 
Built in 2015, the company’s new corporate headquarters was designed to exceed the exacting standards of the latest cutting-edge food safety, product quality and production reliability protocols. The facility features dedicated grinding, blending, and manufacturing space in addition to industry-leading R&D, warehousing and office functionality. The Class A facility is 100% climate-controlled and features direct links to production bays with real-time plant and machine monitoring systems.
 
“The opening of our new facility represents an important milestone for our company. It enables us to significantly expand production of existing products while developing novel single-serve solutions to better serve the rapidly evolving needs of our customer base,” said Pod Pack president and chief executive Tom Martin.
 
Pod Pack’s capabilities include sourcing, grinding, batching, flavor mixing, customized packaging and distribution. It produces single-cup coffee, tea and espresso pods, Keurig-compatible capsules, tea packets, super pods, and cold brew. The company has added 50 new jobs to accommodate recent growth.
