LongueVue Capital invests in Pod Pack International

New Orleans-based private equity firm LongueVue Capital has invested in Pod Pack International, a manufacturer of single-serve coffee, tea, and other beverage product solutions.

LongueVue announced the growth capital was to support the continued expansion of Pod Pack.

Headquartered in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Pod Pack's customer base includes some of the largest coffee roasting, distribution, and retail businesses in the United States, the announcement said.

Within single-serve, Pod Pack is a manufacturer and packager of soft filter pods, a growing product segment that delivers taste, sustainability, and cost advantages over alternative forms of single-serve coffee.

Pod Pack's remarkable growth trajectory over the past several years is a testament to the company's excellence in service, quality, and innovation," said LongueVue Co-founder and Managing Partner Rick Rees. "We are thrilled to partner with Pod Pack's outstanding management team to take advantage of the tremendous growth opportunities that lie ahead for the company."

Tom Martin, President & Chief Executive Officer of Pod Pack, said the company had grown dramatically over the past few years.

"By partnering with LongueVue Capital, we now have additional resources to take our business to even greater levels of success, which has always been our dream," Martin said.
