Pan India D2C Coffee Brand SLAY Coffee Announces Strategic Combination with Farmer Produce Organization for Coffee Supply

  • SLAY Coffee has partnered with Arehalli Biccod Farmer Producer Organization based in Arehalli, Sakleshpur, Karnataka.
  • The FPO consists of more than 300 farmers and with a cumulative coffee yield of 3000 MT of coffee every year.
  • The FPO was created recently and is run by young second/third generation producers.

Highlights of the strategic collaboration:

  • Work closely with OPS member farmers to help improve both the quality of their products and yield by bringing in the latest technology and know-how.
  • Ensure that farmers get their due by paying a significant premium over market prices for their yield. This is achieved by SLAY Coffee working directly with farmers and eliminating the extra layers of sourcing in between.
  • Recognize and highlight farmers who provide a great cup of coffee for customers.
  • SLAY Coffee will also set up a state-of-the-art coffee laboratory focused on testing, training and quality control.

Short Brief on Indian Coffee:

  • India is the 7th largest coffee producer in the world and the 5th largest exporter with a total production of 3.5 L of metric tons of coffee.
  • Of this coffee produced, 3.1L metric tons were exported and only 12% was consumed domestically. SLAY Coffee owns 1% of the total cafes consumed on the domestic market to date.
  • There are nearly 4L coffee growers/farmers of which 99% are small growers/farmers with less than 25 acres of farm size.

As a brand, we benefit from access to certain of the best coffees the region produces which will further enhance the end experience for our customers. More importantly, it also gives us the opportunity as a brand to create a positive impact within the farmer ecosystem through to a variety of initiatives and investments.
