8.01 Other Events


On or about December 21, 2020, Coffee Holding Co., Inc. (the “Company”) was named as a defendant in a putative class action lawsuit (the “Action”) filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois (the “Court”). The plaintiffs purported to represent a class of individuals who purchased coffee products at Aldi, Inc. and generally alleged that Aldi sold private label coffee products manufactured by the Company and another coffee roasting company, which falsely described the number of cups of coffee that could be made from the amount of product purchased.


On September 28, 2021, the Court entered an order granting the Company’s motion to dismiss with prejudice (the “Dismissal Order”). In the Dismissal Order, the Court stated that no reasonable coffee drinker would be deceived by the Company’s packaging.







Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
