DTS8 Coffee Company, Ltd. will begin to roast and sell Fair Trade and Organic certified coffees, produced by farmer co-operatives, in its growing Shanghai market. These coffees are produced by farmers who cultivate less than 3 hectare farms and harvest 1,000 – 3,000 pounds of coffee per year.
The addition of Fair Trade and Organic coffees will contribute to DTS8’s anticipated future revenue growth.
Mr. Alex Liang, Chairman of DTS8, said, “We expect demand for DTS8 coffees to continue to increase in Shanghai while strengthening our artisan roasted gourmet coffee marketing strategy. Over the past four years, DTS8 has established a growing presence and is an artisan roaster of choice in the largest gourmet coffee market in China.”
Mr. Alex Liang added, “DTS8 is currently evaluating suitable acquisition targets that meet our exacting standards of roasting and supplying coffee to the wholesale and retail, gourmet coffee market segments in China.”
