Belgium-based coffee company Sucafina and its subsidiary Beyers Koffie have partnered with Belgian cleantech company CEE to produce a coffee plant run on green energy, aiming to revolutionize the food and beverage industry. The technology used also, according to the companies involved, uses 2.5 times less energy than the industry standard.

According to Koen Bosmans, the CEO of CEE, the traditional method of roasting coffee using gas-fired batch roasters is extremely energy-intensive and poses challenges for renewable energy usage. However, the new continuous technology is built to be radically more energy-efficient and stabilizes the energy demand.

The green energy is sourced through a combination of on-site solar panels and green energy contracts. This fully electrified roasting technology can be easily connected to any source of green energy, making it a sustainable choice in food and drink industry innovation.

Cory Bush, CEO of Beyers Koffie, explained that the new roaster’s capacity ranges from 1.5-4 tons/hour, making it the world’s largest scale in coffee roasting. The project aims to develop a sustainable commodity in coffee, promoting food and drink sustainability, and driving significant change towards making coffee the first net positive commodity.

According to Sucafina CEO Nicolas A. Tamari, the long-term goal is to reshape the coffee industry for the better and encourage society as a whole to make more responsible choices. Companies in the food and beverage industry must take the lead and act on food and drink sustainability and regulations to create opportunities to improve lives.

In conclusion, the partnership between Sucafina, Beyers Koffie, and CEE, epitomizes the future of food manufacturing trends, food processing technology, food distribution trends, food and drink regulations, food and drink packaging, food and drink marketing, and food and drink consumer trends.
