The year 2020 threw everyone a curve ball with the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus. Businesses shut down, employees learned how to work from home, and everyone focused on staying healthy. Now it’s 2021 and there are some lasting changes brought about by the pandemic. The ‘new normal’ has most businesses looking for ways to provide safe and sanitized working environments for employees and customers and the Coffee Industry is no different. The need for innovative and touchless beverage solutions are higher than ever. The perfect place to find these solutions is at the NAMA Show and Coffee, Tea, & Water – Together in 2021.
Everything has changed since the Coronavirus came to the United States. To learn more about the current state of the Coffee Industry and how it has affected Newco’s approach to product building we interviewed Luke Webster, who is involved with Newco’s Touchless Solutions.
