UCC COFFEE LAUNCHES TÜV CERTIFIED HOME COMPOSTABLE CAPSULE
We’ve launched our first Nespresso® compatible home compostable capsule, independently certified ‘OK compost HOME’ by TÜV Austria – the European standard for compostable products.
Due to its unique top lid sealing technology, the ‘EkoPod’ is unlike any other compostable capsule currently on the market. It is airtight – guaranteeing coffee freshness stays locked in for up to nine months, without using any plastics at all.
Available for private label from January 2021, EkoPod helps retailers meet surging demand for Nespresso® compatible pods, while giving customers a more consumer-friendly, sustainable way to dispose of capsules at home. It can also help retailers achieve their own sustainability and plastic-reduction goals.
