Exhibitor Profile: Banz Kofi comes to European Coffee, Tea & Soft Drinks Expo 2019


Banz Kofi, the premium coffee from Papua New Guinea (PNG), is to showcase its products to the market at European Coffee, Tea & Soft Drinks Expo 2019.

Patrick Killoran, owner of Banz Kofi, explains why the coffee is showcasing itself for the first time at European Coffee, Tea & Soft Drinks Expo 2019.


Why are you exhibiting at European Coffee Expo?

Being the leading premium brand in PNG, Banz Kofi takes pride in The Banz Kofi Blend. This is a blend worth sharing all over the world and European Coffee Expo 2019 is one that Banz Kofi will not miss. Europe is a very good market for premium coffee such as Banz Kofi.

The Expo is an opportunity that has been offered to us by Pacific Trade Investment, to promote the products to the European market. Being part of a growing nation has its hurdles and participating in this Expo will help pave the way for new opportunities.


What products will you be showcasing at the European Coffee Expo?

This includes bean/ground coffee pouches, 5g Biodegradable Nespresso Compatible Capsules, coffee plunger mugs and gift packs. In the first quarter of next year the 2KG service packet will be made available for non-retail customers. 


What do you see as the key current opportunities and challenges for the sector right now?

The opportunities are the several new markets opening for premium coffee both in the multiples and high street chains. But there are challenges with logistics and exporting coffee out of the country. We are being proactive in finding a solution to these export challenges.
