NAFED to contribute and promote ‘International Year of the Millet’ 2023 on global scale
Retro-compatible with Nespresso Original machines, the new capsules pilot in France and Switzerland from spring 2023
After three years of research and development, Nestlé Nespresso S.A. has created a home compostable paper-based capsule that delivers the high-quality coffee for which the brand is known, with no compromise on the taste experience. Consumer demand for compostable packaging is increasing, and an estimated 45% of French people now home compost one or more types of biowaste.
Several aspects of the capsule feature proprietary technology, including the biopolymer lining inside the capsule which protects the coffee against oxidisation.
Nespresso’s coffee masters have also created four new blends, including an organic coffee, sourced through the Nespresso AAA Sustainable Quality Programme, specifically crafted to act in perfect harmony with these new paper-based capsules.
Developed as an alternative for those who prefer and have access to a compost, the innovation will widen the sustainable choices already offered to Nespresso consumers through its aluminium capsules.
Huhtamaki, a global provider of sustainable packaging solutions, was one of the partners in the development of this new paper-based capsule.
