Johnny Gold Foods, a new company based in the GTA, is looking to develop novel, high quality food and beverage products, focusing initially on coffee and tea.

Project Summary

Johnny Gold Foods approached the CRI with a novel infusion idea for their coffee beans. Using existing technology, an emulsion was developed that was coated onto the coffee beans to offer a unique end product. The process was validated and the water-based soluble emulsion was specifically developed for this application.

The Challenge

To develop the manufacturing process for coating coffee beans to deliver a premium, novel coffee experience for home and commercial settings.

The Solution

Fanshawe faculty researchers and students 

  • Developed a water-soluble emulsion to be used as a coating for the coffee beans
  • Validated the process of coating coffee beans using the emulsion 
  • Verified the quality of the coffee produced with coated beans
