Smile Compostable Solutions is offering a new product for retailers’ private label coffee products.
The new home compostable coffee pods are compatible with Nespresso Original brewing machines, and utilizes Smile’s patented oxygen barrier process that ensures a shelf life of six to 12 months. The new pods can be filled by Smile’s co-packing partner Metropolis Coffee Company.
“Innovation is at the heart of Smile's strategy for convenience and sustainability,” said the company. “A private label launch offers the opportunity for companies to beat industry leaders to market. Home compostable pods compatible with Keurig brewing machines are currently in development.”
The innovation joins Smile's product line of home compostable straws and U.S. Plastics Pact awarded commercially compostable pods compatible with Keurig brewers. The new private label pods are Carbon Neutral and USDA Biobased certified.
"Smile and our partners are proud to have plant-based materials to bring the best home compostable, carbon-neutral coffee pods to the market,” said Smile Compostable Solutions CEO and co-founder Michael Sands. “Backed by all our third-party certifications, we know customers and consumers will find these pods a great solution to pods with limited recycling options."
