Pigmea has put on the market a high barrier film structure for coffee and chocolate products to avoid the use of aluminium and polyester. As a direct consequence of the use of this film structure, recyclability becomes possible, what the presence of aluminium or metalised polyester did not allowed until now for these packs. Coffee is a product that needs high barrier protection to avoid the lost of aroma. This is the reason why traditionally coffee manufacturers has used film structures with aluminium or polyester in its packaging composition, what made impossible its recyclability.

The achievement of a film structure for coffee market that can be recycled shows Pigmea’s commitment with constant research of new packaging structures and materials in order to improve their clients high performances, as well as with the environment and its sustainability, which is becoming an important demand on the market.
