Inside each cup of coffee there is inspiration, memories, determination. It is just coffee, but its aroma has a special power over us and over our mood. And the need to preserve both the aroma and the rest of its organoleptic characteristics is what has made us traditionally propose high barrier packages for this special product. They are generally non-recyclable complex, laminated packages with aluminum. Fortunately, our in-house research allows Eniter to offer a sustainable alternative which is just as protective.
High barrier without aluminum and 100% recyclable
In Eniter, we have obtained a 100%-recyclable solution for coffee beans. It is a single-material package made up of three polypropylene layers combined depending on the differentiated treatments applied to each one of them. The result is a package that allows a high-quality, beautiful printing on the outside, and a barrier as efficient as aluminum in the inside.
Avoid the aluminum, keep the barrier
The advantage of a single-material package like this one is that, once it reaches the end of its shelf life, it becomes 100% mechanically recyclable. This means that it can go back to being a commodity for several applications. The extra sustainable feature of this package is that it allows us to avoid the use of laminated aluminum. This is because once this metal has been included in a complex, it is virtually irretrievable.
There are people who still identify the use of aluminum with the quality of the package, which is not necessarily true. The truth is that the most demanding consumers, the ones who set the tone, are requesting something else: new proposals and attitudes from the producers.
What solution do you need?
Nowadays, coffee beans are a product for coffee gourmets or for the on-premises channel. This encourages us to propose packages with these very different characteristics and features. This is why we offer a bag with two bellows and a side welding, as well as doypack, all of them with very varied sizes. Which one do you prefer for your coffee?
