Dupuy Silo Facility & Maxwell House Quality Lab Tour

Friday, September 23, 2011

Depart UNF | 9:00 a.m.

Return | 1:00 p.m.

 

Dupuy Silo Facility receives, stores, blends and ships all the green coffee beans used by the Kraft Foods Maxwell House Coffee plant in Jacksonville. Completed in 2005, it was the first silo operation built in the U.S. to handle green coffee.

Coffee beans from all over the world are delivered to Dupuy Silo Facility in burlap bags, super sacks, and containerized bulk. Maxwell House has a quality lab onsite to test the blend before being sent to the factory for roasting.

This tour is a great opportunity to see "upstream" supply chain activities and processes that deliver the "good to the last drop" flavor blend Maxwell House in famous for.
