“Packaging is essential for keeping your coffee safe in its journey from roastery to cup. It allows for safe transport, preserves flavours and aromas, prolongs shelf life, and, if processed correctly, reduces waste. There’s no doubt that researchers and packaging manufacturers will keep improving solutions with the aim of offering 100% sustainable coffee bags.
We know that single-use packaging poses a threat to the global ecosystem. However, there are ways to minimise the use of single-use packaging. These include to avoiding fuel-based materials and recycling the packaging that is already in circulation.”
“The goal is to follow the ‘cradle-to-cradle’ approach, rather than the ‘cradle-to-grave’.” – Mark Zhou, the founder and President of MTPak Coffee.
