Artisanal coffee roaster, The Coffee Factory, has launched its first-ever compostable packaging range for its ethically sourced ground coffee after collaborating with flexible packaging innovator, Parkside.
The Coffee Factory is a subscription service, delivering fresh coffee to homes and businesses throughout the UK. Working closely with Parkside, the company has introduced a compostable 3-ply paper, metallised cellulose, biopolymer packaging solution for its ground coffee bags.
Danny Parfitt, Co-founder of The Coffee Factory, commented: “Our mission is clear – we want our customers to enjoy a delicious cup of fresh coffee that is sustainable at every point in the supply chain. We are proud to deliver ethically sourced coffee to our customers and as part of our ongoing commitment to support the environment, we are putting the same dedication into our packaging too. Through our collaboration with Parkside, we can further honour our commitment to greener coffee for all.”
The Coffee Factory packaging forms part of the Parkside Park2NatureTM range of solutions, which protects products through the food manufacturing supply chain. The range comprises sustainable, TUV accredited compostable flexible packaging laminates made from renewable resources such as ethically sourced plant fibres. These compostable designs enable brands, producers, and retailers to reduce their reliance on petrochemicals while still meeting strict food hygiene and safety standards.
Paula Birch, Global Sales Director at Parkside, said: “Park2Nature is a versatile packaging platform designed to make sustainability simple. The high oxygen and moisture barrier exhibited makes the range comparable to any flexible packaging solution on the market today.
“We are delighted with the results of our collaboration with The Coffee Factory. Our award-winning solutions continue to resonate and gain traction with FMCG brands and retailers as an environmentally sound and high-performance solution for its flexible packaging needs.
“It’s clear that a strong contingent of consumers are looking for compostable packaging from their brands of choice – so there are very real commercial advantages for brands in choosing to partner with Parkside for their packaging needs.”
