    UCC Coffee is the fifth largest global group in coffee roasting. Created in 1933 by Mr. Tadeo Ueshima, this family and independent company, is specialized in coffee roasting. This is the story of a Japanese family, passionate about coffee, who selects and grows the most famous vintages on their own plantations: the Hawaii Kona and the Blue Mountain of Jamaica. A part of the production is made with these varieties of coffee.  This family converted in Asia, tea consumption into a consumption of the best filter and expresso coffees. Japanese people were already known as buyers of Bordeaux wine. Now they develop the best coffees. They work in all the markets: from the coffee growing to the marketing, including coffee-roasting of course. Our range of products integrates all possible forms of coffee: in beans, ground, in pads, in pods and compatible capsules Nespresso®, in soluble coffee and even in cans.  UCC markets its products in large and medium supermarkets and in away-from-home catering or by a Coffee Shop network in Japan and throughout Southeast Asia. Buying United Coffee in 2012, UCC COFFEE settled down in Europe, with 6 factories of roasting, among them, UCC COFFEE France based in Valence (before known as the roasting factory “Les Cafés Piyard, created in 1926”). The first task UCC has to do, was to modernize the factory for reaching the best levels of quality and productivity. Thanks to this, UCC was able to keep the certification IFS to work on private labels in retail industry. UCC COFFEE France is the second private label actor on coffee category in France and is a specialist of pads and compatible capsules Nespresso.

  • COFFEE CAPSULES 100% AIRTIGHT UCC COFFEE

    UCC COFFEE has invested in research and innovation. The group has developed a new capsule which is 100% compatible with Nespresso®* coffee machines and mainly, 100% airtight, meeting, in this way, demand of a growing market.

    UCC Coffee has chosen a thermoformed capsule technology, using two materials EVOH and PP, totally oxygen and moisture barrier.This particular packaging allows a total conservation of aromas during 18 months. Moreover, it allows to have a larger quantity of coffee in cm3 (the same as Nespresso®*). Other capsules of the market are injected and in PBT, consequently coffee starts losing his aromatic characteristics after 6-9 months. On the other hand, coffee quantity is smaller. 

    Coffee capsules are entirely compatible with all Nespresso®* systems. Top and bottom  of our capsule are made of aluminum. They are conceived for an optimum drilling and a perfect infusion. This new generation of UCC capsules guarantees a coffee of exceptional quality:

    On a panel of 60 consumers, Eurofins (at the request of UCC Coffee) organized a sensory analysis in January 2016.UCC Coffee capsule was blindly compared to 3 national brands market leaders. UCC Coffee capsule has been ranked as having the best coffee for 4 references. 

    Furthermore, UCC caspsules ensure 70% packaging less than the first generation. 
    A French roasting, an essential expertise. Development, roasting, milling and production of capsules are made in France, in Valence, in the Rhone Valley.
