Pallet Coding - Percol Will Have Compostable Packaging

Recent news reports say that UK coffee brand Percol Coffee has collaborated with Parkside Flexibles to reach its vision of providing all types of coffee packs with plastic-free, compostable packaging.  Percol has become the first in the UK in the coffee industry to receive A Plastic Planet's 'Plastic Free Trust Mark.'

According to reports, the new packaging is manufactured of bio-based materials that are developed so that they break down within 26 weeks and are fully home compostable.  The packaging material also delivers exceptional moisture and aroma barriers while providing the necessary oxygen for a good product, maintaining maximum flavor and extending shelf life for ground, bean and roast coffee varieties. 

David Brooks, managing director at Percol, said the the new compostable packaging has positioned the company at the forefront of the market and takes Percol to another level, having received the Plastic Free Trust Mark.  Brooks also said the company endeavors to be not only leaders but ethical innovators in the coffee market, one reason Percol chose to collaborate with Parkside in developing the new compostable packaging.

Percol is "coffee on a mission," the first ground coffee to be Fairtrade certified according to the company's website.  Pioneers in the use of single-origin and organic beans for creating delicious coffee, Percol's next mission is to be the most sustainable coffee company.  It appears they are off to a positive start!  Congratulations on achieving an important sustainability goal.
