The ALPLA Group, a global packaging producer and specialist in recycling, is consolidating its biodegradable packaging solutions under a single label called Blue Circle Packaging label.
The sustainable solutions offered by the company under the new label are all biodegradable and based on renewably-sourced materials.
‘We see the establishment of our own label which includes all of our products made from biodegradable materials as a clear commitment to our activities in this future market. They are a recyclable addition to our existing packaging solutions,’ says Nicolas Lehner, CCO of the ALPLA Group and responsible for global sales.
The first Blue Circle product offered by the company is a range of home-compostable coffee capsules. The coffee capsules are injection moulded and characterised by their technical and aroma-preserving properties. They are also certified home compostable, having been granted both OK Compost HOME and OK Compost INDUSTRIAL certificates.
In conjunction with the coffee roaster Amann Kaffee and the agency Silberball, ALPLA has also founded the start-up Blue Circle Coffee. It offers roasting houses and smaller coffee suppliers extensive expertise in roasting, filling, packaging and marketing coffee in home-compostable coffee capsules. Consumers can also order three varieties of the company’s own Blue Circle coffee line via an integrated web shop.
