We at PACCOR constantly evolve our technologies and materials, to create coffee capsules that minimize waste and maximize the taste of the product.
Our priority is to preserve the delicious taste of freshly roasted beans in just one pod, because nothing is more important than protecting the incomparable flavor of coffee. Our high-performance, sustainable coffee capsules prevent contamination of the coffee by oxygen or moisture and ensure a safe heating process – and they are recyclable, too.
"Reinventing the coffee capsule – this was our goal when we first started developing our sustainable, high-barrier, PP single-serve coffee pods. Four years of research led to a unique material structure that is compostable and therefore not only protects the flavor of freshly roasted coffee beans, but also our planet."
Koke Pursals, Managing Director at PACCOR Iberia EDV
As a signatory to the New Plastic Global Commitment, we want 100% of plastic packaging to be safely reused, recycled, or composted. Therefore, we did not just develop another single-serve pod solution, but instead started a compostable coffee capsules revolution. Thanks to our innovative materials engineering team, our capsules provide a great aroma barrier and can be recycled easily.
Everyone should be able to taste the wonderful aroma of homemade coffee – without having to feel bad about the environmental impact. Thanks to our compostable pods, our customers don't have to compromise on their choice of coffee – they can just sit back and enjoy.
At PACCOR, we find solutions that are driving the shift towards a sustainable circular economy within the packaging industry. Working with numerous partners along our value chain, we are developing innovative, forward-thinking packaging solutions on behalf of future generations. Learn more about our latest achievements.
The material we use most often for our pods is PP (polypropylene). Due to the larger number of municipal programs that support PP recycling, this plastic material was identified to replace PS (polystyrene).
Our experts have developed a PP material structure that can be recycled in a material recovery facility (MRF) based on material density, which allows it to float. Plastics that float retain their value for sale by recycling companies as post-consumer recycled (PCR).
Our manufacturing systems are designed for circularity. This is why we are able to reuse at least 98% of in-process recycled PP material today.
Our innovative team has developed compostable material options for single-serve pods. The first of our products to be offered in a compostable version is the Nespresso® compatible capsule. Combined with compostable lids, filters, and coffee grounds, the PACCOR pod is completely compostable after use.
To offer our customers sustainable packaging solutions, we are currently developing compostable material options for K-CUP® and Dolce Gusto® compatible pods, which will be available commercially soon.
As a signatory to the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment, we are committed to eliminating plastic waste and the associated environmental pollution in a sustainable way. We will ensure that 100% of plastic packaging can be easily and safely reused, recycled, or composted by 2025. This is an important aspect of our sustainability strategy

The combination of recyclable material, design, and excellent performance makes our coffee capsules truly unique within the coffee capsule market. In 2020 we also began providing a Dolce Gusto® compatible solution in PP barrier. In addition, we have been developing a more sustainable solution based on rPP combined with EVOH. A Post-Industrial Recycled rPP or Post-Consumer Recycled rPP solution will be launched soon.
