Helsinki-based coffee, beverage and food supplier Paulig has introduced recyclable vacuum coffee packaging for its retail coffee range in Finland and Estonia. 

In a press release, Paulig said it is one of the first coffee companies in the world to introduce the packaging, which is manufactured from a single plastic type and does not have an aluminium layer. A pilot launch of the packaging is being used on its Paulig Mundo Original and Paulig Café New York grocery lines.  

“Mono-material packaging containing only one type of plastic can be recycled into new products or raw materials,” said Kati Randell, R&D Manager for Packaging, Paulig.   

The move is part of Paulig’s goal to use only recyclable packaging by the end of 2025 which has also seen the business invest €25m ($27.1m) in new packaging lines at its Vuosaari roastery. 

As of the start of the second quarter, one-third of Paulig’s 500g coffee packaging units were produced on a new line at the site.  

Alongside its recyclable packaging pledge, the Finnish coffee, beverage and food supplier is also seeking an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from its own operations by 2030, alongside a 50% reduction in its wider value chain.
