Sept 21, 2021 - Jabil Packaging Solutions announced a significant advancement in coffee pod sustainability with the launch of their home-compostable coffee capsule for single serve espresso brewers. This high-barrier coffee capsule improves on existing solutions by eliminating the need for a plastic or foil pouch that is sometimes required to preserve freshness in compostable coffee capsules.
JPS co-developed the compostable coffee capsule with Productos Solubles S.A. (Prosol), a leading European coffee roaster, based in Palencia, Spain.
The new coffee pod does not require a secondary pouch to maintain optimal product freshness, keeping packaging to a minimum without sacrificing flavor or shelf life.
"The high-barrier compostable coffee capsule is an excellent example of where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts," said Ayana Johnson, vice president of technology, Jabil Packaging Solutions. "The capsule and coffee grounds work together to break down in-home or commercial composting environments — reducing both packaging waste as well as coffee grounds waste."
The partnership with Prosol is expected to bring over 500 million compostable coffee capsules to European consumers over the course of four years.
