Specifically developed to meet the increasing demand for renewable coffee packaging - Econic bio-degradable coffee bags provide the ideal sealing and barrier properties for hot roasted coffee and dry foods and are available both with and without vents.
Believed to be the first packaging of its kind in the world, Econic coffee bags are made from three separate bio-degradable films, which are laminated together to provide a high level of functionality at a competitive price point.
The combination of the three films in the Econic packaging provides optimum moisture and oxygen barrier properties and high sealability through coffee granules and other contaminants. All three films have been internationally certified to EN13432 for composting and biodegradability.
An optional bio-degradable vent is also available to allow the CO2 gases given off by hot roasted coffee beans to be vented. The vent replaces the traditional non-renewable one-way valve button, and is activated by positive pressure inside the bag.
These revolutionary renewable coffee packs provide equivalent barrier properties and shelf appeal to those made from fossil fuels and offer numerous market advantages.
Econic coffee bags (such as those recently launched by Trade Aid) can be `made to order’ and printed with the same high quality flexographic printing that has won Convex Plastics six gold medals in the prestigious New Zealand printing industry Pride in Print Awards since 2002.
Plain ready-made Econic coffee bags can also be purchased `off the shelf’ from Convex Plastics in 250g, 500g and 1kg sizes, both with and without vents. The ready-made Econic bags have been especially made to provide businesses with ready access to high quality plain bio-degradable coffee bags, which they can fill and seal themselves.
