Farmer Brothers Co

Business Description

Farmer Bros. Co., a Delaware corporation, is a national coffee roaster, wholesaler and distributor of coffee, tea and culinary products. We serve a wide variety of customers, from small independent restaurants and foodservice operators to large institutional buyers like restaurant and convenience store chains, hotels, casinos, hospitals, and gourmet coffee houses, as well as grocery chains with private brand and consumer-branded coffee products. With a robust product line, including organic, Direct Trade, Direct Trade Verified Sustainable coffees or DTVS and other sustainably-produced coffees, iced and hot teas, cappuccino, spices, and baking/biscuit mixes, among others, we offer a comprehensive approach to our customers by providing not only a breadth of high-quality products, but also value-added services such as market insight, beverage planning, and equipment placement and service. We were founded in 1912, incorporated in California in 1923, and reincorporated in Delaware in 2004. We operate in one business segment.

We develop great tasting products delivered with concierge service with the goal of a positive impact on our customers and the planet. Through our sustainability, stewardship, environmental efforts, and leadership we are not only committed to serving the finest products available, considering the cost needs of the customer, but also insist on their sustainable cultivation, manufacture and distribution whenever possible.
In order to achieve our mission, we have had to grow existing capabilities and develop new ones over the years. More recently, we have undertaken initiatives such as, but not limited to, the following:

develop new products in response to demographic and other trends to better compete in areas such as premium coffee and tea;

rethink aspects of our Company culture to improve productivity and employee engagement and to attract talent;

embrace sustainability across our operations, in the quality of our products, as well as, how we treat our coffee growers; and

ensure our systems and processes provide the highest quality products at a competitive cost, protection from cyber-risk, and a safe environment for our employees and partners.
We differentiate ourselves in the marketplace through our product offerings and through our customer service model, which includes:

a wide variety of coffee product offerings and packaging options across numerous brands and quality tiers;

beverage equipment placement and service;

hassle-free inventory and product procurement management;

DSD service;

merchandising support; and

product and menu insights.
Our services are conducted primarily in person through Route Sales Representatives, or RSRs, who develop personal relationships with chefs, restaurant owners and food buyers at their delivery locations. We also provide comprehensive coffee programs to our national account customers, including private brand development, green coffee procurement, hedging, category management, sustainable sourcing and supply chain management.
We distribute our owned brands primarily through our DSD network, while continuing to support and grow our private label and other national account business. Although currently a small portion of our distribution, we also distribute directly to consumers through our website and sell certain products such as Un Momento®, Collaborative Coffee™, Cain's™ and McGarvey® at retail.

We have made the following investments in an effort to ensure we are well-positioned within the industry to take advantage of category trends, industry insights, and general coffee and tea knowledge to grow our business:

Coffee Industry Leadership. Through our dedication to the craft of sourcing, blending and roasting coffee, and our participation and/or leadership positions with the SCAA, National Coffee Association, Coalition for Coffee Communities, International Women's Coffee Alliance, International Foodservice Manufacturers Association, Pacific Coast Coffee Association, Roasters Guild and World Coffee Research, we work to help shape the future of the coffee industry. We believe that due to our commitment to the industry, large retail and foodservice operators are drawn to working with us. We were among the first coffee roasters in the nation to receive SCAA certification of a state-of-the-art coffee lab and operate Public Domain®, a specialty coffeehouse in Portland, Oregon. Upon completion, we plan to submit our product development lab at the New Facility for SCAA certification.

Market Insight and Consumer Research. We have developed a market insight capability internally that reinforces our business-to-business positioning as a thought leader in the coffee industry. We provide trend insights that help our customers create winning products and integrated marketing strategies for their own coffee brands.
