Kraft Heinz Canada acquires Ethical Bean Coffee

On 24 September, Kraft Heinz Canada announced it has completed the acquisition of the assets of roaster Ethical Bean Coffee. “Kraft Heinz Canada is continuously looking for ways to deliver superior quality, extensive variety, and finer products to Canadians,” Kraft Heinz Canada President Carlos Piani says. “We believe quality coffee starts at the source, which involves responsible sourcing and supporting the hard-working dedicated farmers at origin. The acquisition of Ethical Bean Coffee reinforces our pledge to the sustainable health of our people, our planet and our Company.” Founded in 2003 and based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Ethical Bean is committed to social responsibility, global awareness and environmental accountability. Co-founders Lloyd Bernhardt and Kim Schachte launched Ethical Bean following a journey to Guatemala in 1999 that sparked a passion for the culture of the country. “We are proud of what Ethical Bean has been able to accomplish over the past 15 years, building a brand with a solid reputation across North America for great tasting coffee, that is sustainably sourced,” Ethical Bean Coffee Co-founder Lloyd Bernhardt says. “With Kraft Heinz’s expertise and scale, we’re confident that Ethical Bean Coffee will continue to deliver on that reputation to a much wider audience.”
