Who uses our kraft coffee bags

Why these coffee brands choose kraft paper

Kraft paper is one of the primary packaging materials favoured across the coffee sector. It is used in everything from pouches and takeaway cups to subscription boxes. The kraft paper in our packaging is made using wood sourced from FSC-certified forests. These coffee bags limit environmental impact and showcase a clear commitment to sustainability.


In its unprocessed state, kraft paper is brown or yellow.

Unbleached kraft has a rustic look and feel that appeals to roasters who want their coffee bags to look environmentally friendly.

Additionally, it is more likely to satisfy customer concerns about sustainability and may encourage them to recycle the packaging.

Furthermore, unbleached kraft paper is ideal for packaging coffee as it is strong and lightweight, so it will not add to your packaged weight and size.


Bleached kraft paper lends itself well to brands who want to highlight their commitment to environmental sustainability.

It can be dyed and printed using any colours and images imaginable, while the stark white colour ensures your branding will stand out. 

A common misconception is that the bleaching process makes this kraft paper less sustainable. However, modern paper manufacturers are now using oxygen, ozone, or hydrogen peroxide to bleach the paper.

To preserve freshness and protect the beans from moisture, sunlight, oxygen, heat, and other external factors, all of our kraft paper coffee bags can be fitted with:

  • Recyclable degassing valves
  • Additional protective layers
  • Resealable zippers

To further customise your coffee packaging, you can also add:

  • A custom design on the outside and inside of the bag
  • Your logo with different inks and effects (such as embossing, debossing, and hot stamping)
  • Card slots
  • Transparent windows
  • And more
