Coffee packing machine boosts roastery productivity

A Melbourne-based Australian coffee roastery, Roasting Warehouse, has quadrupled productivity following the installation of the Jet Technologies Goglio G21 Vertical Form Fill & Seal coffee packing machine.

Founded in 2017, Roasting Warehouse is a family business that has steadily grown from its roots as a café in North Melbourne to become a player in the coffee sector. With its move to a larger facility in Airport West in 2019, the company has expanded its operations across three locations: North Melbourne, Airport West and South Fremantle.

"When we reached 8–9 times production, we knew it was time for a change. Our old machinery couldn't keep up with the demand, and we were facing extended hours and logistical challenges,” said Thanos Giagkoudis, Head Roaster, Roasting Warehouse Specialty Coffee.

In September 2023, Roasting Warehouse implemented the Goglio G21 Coffee Packaging Machine to help it meet the growing demand and expand its customer base. The machine’s installation has streamlined operations and allowed for greater flexibility in accommodating various packaging sizes. It has also resulted in improved customer service and reduced packaging waste.

“Productivity increased a lot. We were able to get work done a lot quicker, and the flexibility of the G21 allowed us to accommodate various packaging sizes effortlessly. The partnership has also alleviated stress associated with production bottlenecks and breakdowns. Not having to stress and knowing things will be okay has been a game-changer for us,” Giagkoudis said.

Looking ahead, Roasting Warehouse remains committed to further expansion and innovation.

“We are targeting a larger roaster soon and another machine to go with the G21,” said Alexander Paraskevopoulos, Head of Marketing, Roasting Warehouse Specialty Coffee.

The business is also collaborating with Jet Technologies in developing and sourcing coffee packaging materials and designs, with four films currently under production.

“Transitioning to these new materials aligns with our commitment to quality and sustainability,” Paraskevopoulos said.

 "Our growth is not just about acquiring new machinery. It's about continuously improving our operations and serving our customers better.”

As part of its expansion, Roasting Warehouse is also opening a Melbourne-style café roastery in Athens.

Daniel Malki, Director of Jet Technologies said: “We are thrilled to have partnered with Roasting Warehouse on this transformative journey. The fact that they’re a family-run business, and their dedication to quality and innovation, perfectly aligns with our ethos, and we are excited to continue supporting their growth and success.”
