Wasteful packaging drives us crazy. If we could package our coffees in reusable glass jars we would. Our 454 g bio-fresh packaging is the next best thing. It is vacuum sealed and equipped with a one-way valve that helps the coffee stay fresher longer. The bag itself is recyclable, compostable, and biodegradable. All you need to do is remove the tin tie (re-use if you can) and valve, and throw it in your home composter. Our new 454 g packaging has been on the shelves at our retail locations since November 2012.
We purchase our packaging from TekPak Solutions, a Canadian company “created to provide intelligent, cost-effective [packaging] solutions . . . that in turn do not affect the future of our planet’s delicate ecosystem”. The science behind this packaging all started with an inventive fisherman/scientist and a plastic lure. Click here to read more about the discovery.
