upgrade your tea + coffee brand’s look 

Custom, printed pouches, showcasing your coffee or tea brand in vibrant colours and high-definition graphics are a sure way to differentiate your products from the competition. No matter where your products are sold — in local coffee shops, retail stores or online — there are many advantages to creating pre-printed pouches versus generic bags with hand-applied labels.

Coupled with low minimum orders and quick turnaround times, your seasonal flavours and product launches have a better chance of success, with a lower investment risk. 

less time + labor

Hand-labeling bags with stickers is a time consuming and tedious task. Put time back in your day and give consumers consistent and beautifully packaged products, time and time again.

protective measures for your coffee beans packaging

Oxygen is the enemy of freshly roasted coffee. Because coffee gives off carbon dioxide after it is roasted, adding a degassing valve to your coffee packages allows the carbon dioxide to escape from the pouch without letting oxygen back in. This ensures a longer shelf life and fresh from the roaster quality.

Another way to safeguard your coffee grounds and tea leaves from the elements is with resealable zippers. Press-to-close zippers offer superior performance to tin ties or other reclosure methods by keeping contents fresh and securely inside, safe from accidental spillage. Lastly, high barrier films keep oxygen and moisture out, while sealing in the aroma. 

Track and trace your product

Following your product’s journey is informative to your supply chain and important to your consumers. Allow both parties to track and trace your coffee beans and tea leaves from farm to retail by simply scanning a QR code printed on your packaging. Give consumers transparency as to how your product was sourced and provide your supply chain with insights and areas for improvement. If any suspicious activity is to arise, your team can intervene quickly, protecting your consumers from harm, and your brand’s reputation.
