JAVA & Co. joins N.A.S.F.T.

JAVA & Co. has just been accepted for the esteemed membership in the N.A.S.F.T.

In 2008, just months after the husband and wife team started the company, JAVA & Co. first was accepted into NASFT’s member candidate program – a new program designed and implemented to foster assistance and growth in specialty food start-ups. Committed to quality and with a discerning reputation - not all applications and product samples are accepted and approved for candidate membership.

JAVA & Co. then applied for full membership in the spring of 2010. The innovative coffee infused syrups and JAVA Spice launched them into favorable approval. It is a true honor to be accepted into this world wide recognized and respected organization as we continue to grow our new business with the support of N.A.S.F.T.!

“The National Association for the Specialty Food Trade is an association of independent, innovative businesses committed to bringing great foods to market. It is a diverse community of passionate and creative entrepreneurs who fuel the innovation and authenticity found in food today.

With more than 2,900+ member companies from around the world, the NASFT is the preeminent not-for-profit business trade association established to foster trade, commerce and interest in the $60 billion specialty food industry.
