The new investor presentation highlights how Farmer Bros. is understanding, leading, building and winning in the business of coffee.

SQF is a Global Food Safety Initiative-based system that strengthens Farmer Bros.’ commitment to supplying safe, quality coffee products and compliance with food safety legislation. The initial term of the certification is for a 12-month period after which the Company expects to apply for recertification on an ongoing basis. The certification builds on the Company’s strong record of SQF scores at its coffee processing facilities in Houston, Texas and Portland, Oregon.
