Jet Technologies & Grinders Coffee sustainable packaging initiative

In response to the current push for sustainability in the coffee industry, Jet Technologies has teamed up with Australian coffee roaster Grinders Coffee to change up its packaging so it meets the requirements of the RED Group REDcycle initiative.

Coffee packaging has been a sustainability challenge due to the types of materials traditionally used not being recyclable. However, in September 2020 REDcycle expanded the range of plastics it accepted to include multiple layers — meaning coffee packaging made up of plastic layers could meet the criteria.

Grinders worked alongside Jet Technologies to improve the sustainability profile of its products — switching out its old coffee packaging for fully recyclable coffee bags.

“We now have seven products in the Grinders Coffee range that will participate in the recycling project, with each product labelled to identify its compatibility with REDcycle,” said Nitin Hurgobin, Head of Supply Chain at Grinders Coffee.

With its shift to recyclable packaging, Grinders is now able to mix seamless production with sustainability, all whilst maintaining the taste and freshness of its coffee.

Additionally, Grinders has switched to compostable coffee capsules as part of the new initiative.
