Foundation Coffee is partnering with more than 1000 Kiwi companies, encouraging them to ditch single-use plastic and achieve zero waste from their workplace.

You probably start your day with a cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate. If you work in an office, chances are there's a coffee machine and a water cooler somewhere nearby. 

Have you ever considered consolidating these two workplace necessities to get them both from one supplier?
Doing so can offer a number of benefits; reducing the amount of waste your office produces and saving money on your coffee-making and consumable costs. These are important considerations when setting up a new kitchen or office building.
Foundation Coffee helps you with these systems making everything more efficient, plumbing in your water cooler at the same time as your coffee machine to ensure your business never runs dry!
With the rise in working remotely, setting up your on-site facilities are an important factor in helping boost employee morale when they are at work and enticing them back to collaborating in the office. Let's face it, everyone likes drinking coffee, but nobody likes cleaning the machine at the end of the day! One of the reasons why businesses love their easy-to-use, easy-to-clean milk-powder machines is that they make the task effortless.
One of the benefits of consolidating your workplace beverage systems is that it can help reduce the amount of waste your office produces. As a member of the soft plastics recycling scheme and a finalist in the 2022 Tāmaki Makaurau Zero-Waste Awards, Foundation Coffee specialises in helping businesses become more sustainable. Over the past 2.5 years, they have helped remove 45,000+ plastic 2L milk bottles from their customer's waste streams. In addition, the Soft Plastics scheme processes soft plastic bags from milk powder and 'flat pack' into your waste. Powdered milk still offers a full dairy taste but produces 100 hot milk drinks for 1kg of product, compared to between 7-9 drinks per 2L milk bottle. 

By using reusable cups and bottles, you further reduce the waste your office produces. Not only is this good for the environment, but it can also save your office money on disposables. Foundation Coffee's insulated thermal cups and bottles are unbreakable and keep coffee hot or water cold for longer, meaning you can enjoy your drink at your own pace. 

If you stop purchasing single-use coffee cups and switch to Foundation Coffee's reusable cups, you could save an average of $75 per employee per year! We can custom print them with your logo and each employee's name. These make beautiful Christmas or new employee welcome gifts.
