Alliant Coffee Solutions, green product developer and one-stop shop supplier to the office coffee service industry, is now offering highly sustainable packaging for their The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf soft coffee pods.
Building on their decades-long commitment to protecting the earth, the soft coffee pod packaging is completely sustainable and certified compostable.
Alliant’s BPI® certified compostable soft coffee pod packaging creates absolutely no waste from the start. The coffee is roasted in a facility with 100% green electricity, powered by Bullfrogpowered.
The innovative soft coffee pod film in combination with nitrogen flushing keeps each pod free from oxygen degradation and preserves the quality of the freshly ground coffee inside, all while the pod and packaging can be thrown directly into a compost bin.
Unlike biodegradable products, compostable items decompose into all-natural elements within one to four months. Biodegradable materials can take years to completely decompose, and often leave trace metals behind. Compost will naturally break down into a nutrient rich mixture that can be used to nurture a new generation of plants, and start the cycle again.
Alliant operations director Chris Taffera said: “We have been committed to providing highly sustainable product packaging for many years. We are thrilled to reveal our latest compostable pods for the Coffee Bean brand,” said Chris Taffera, Director of Operations at Alliant.
“Office coffee customers have been very interested in environmentally friendly packaging and we will continue to innovate all of our products to meet their desires and the needs of our earth.”
Through its exclusive partnership with Alliant, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® is available to office coffee services and their customers from coast-to-coast. The menu of products includes compostable single cup soft coffee pods, ground coffee, and whole bean coffee.
Building on over 20 years in the industry, Alliant Coffee Solutions provides office coffee services across the country with a broad portfolio of products and solutions for their office customers. This includes whole and ground beans, single-serve pods and cups, organic teas, and gourmet solubles.
Alliant’s commitment to sustainability has led to the introduction of recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable materials into their products and packaging. In the early 2000s, Alliant was an early adopter of the zero-waste coffee pod that provides an outstanding cup of coffee while being completely biodegradable.
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® is a leading global roaster and retailer of specialty coffees and teas, and is widely credited for driving high quality and innovation to the coffee and tea industry. The company sources the finest ingredients and flavors from around the world and hand blends coffee and tea for the freshest flavors.
