At Heritage Coffee Roasting Company, we are always looking for ways to improve our products and our customer’s experiences. Naturally, when we heard the buzz about the latest developments in sustainable coffee packaging we knew we had to give it a try. We live and work in one of the most beautiful places in the world – and we’d like to keep it that way!
Our new 12 oz bags were custom produced for us by TricorBraun Flex utilizing their Biotre™ 2.0 packaging film. This material is made entirely of renewable plant resources; specifically wood pulp and sugarcane. It isn’t completely compostable, but 60% will break down naturally in approximately twelve weeks time. We think that’s a heck of a lot better than our petroleum based bags that are destined to sit in the landfill for a thousand years.
These bags not only reduce the amount of waste that ends up in the trash, but helps us preserve the environment by eliminating the use of fossil fuels and mineral resources that would typically be used in our coffee packaging. The plant-based components of Biotre™ 2.0 also absorb the greenhouse gas CO2 during their growth cycle and
We at Heritage are so excited to be able to offer this new sustainable packaging for our 12 oz bags. It is very important to us to be able to preserve the freshness of our coffee, and this technology allows us to continue that practice while helping to protect the environment. Please let us know if you are enjoying the new bags as much as we are, and if you would like to see us continue this eco-friendly expansion with other Heritage products as well.
