Peoples Organic Coffee Brand Now Available In Compostable Pod Packaging

Sept. 26, 2018

National Coffee Roasters (NCR) is pleased to announce that its Peoples Organic Coffee® brand has joined other NCR brands, including Café Classics™ and Donut Shop Classics ™, in offering compostable pod packaging. National Coffee Roasters has been an industry leader in providing premium, craft roasted coffee to its customers in an environmentally friendly manner. 

Roast Master & General Manager Tom Dotray said, “The convenience of single-serve packaging has led to one of the most popular forms of delivering coffee and it shows no signs of slowing down. However, most single-serve coffees are made from materials that end up in landfills. In an effort to diminish that environmental impact, NCR has chosen to invest in the procurement of compostable coffee pods for the Peoples Organic Coffee brand. Now three brands within our brand family offer compostable coffee pods. We’re proud to be able to offer a variety of coffees this way and do our part in reducing the industry’s carbon footprint.” 

In addition to being compostable, the weave pattern on pod paper used for the Peoples Organic Coffee pods allows for superior extraction of the precision ground coffee. These pods are packed into a compostable wrapper, which also goes into a recyclable dispenser box, leaving nothing to be designated as trash. 

Peoples Organic Coffee 

Peoples Organic Coffee was added to the NCR coffee brand lineup 24 months ago, as a more sustainable approach to coffee through the utilization of Fair Trade Organic beans. National Coffee Roasters submits to extensive third-party auditing for Peoples Organic Coffee, to assure consumers that its the growers that receive fair and just compensation for their labors and that the coffees are certified organic.
