Shielding Your Green Coffee Beans And Other Grains: Ecotact Packaging’s Power Of Zero

April 02, 2024 by Shruti Purohit

In the bustling world of international trade, coffee beans go through an exciting journey from their country of origin to distant lands. Each step of this journey poses a threat to the precious flavor and aroma of your coffee/grains/cocoa beans. From the burning heat of tropical climates to sudden, chilling temperature shifts, these beans face numerous challenges. Moreover, these transits also expose the beans to oxygen and moisture. During this process, coffee beans often compromise their quality which a coffee lover would never appreciate!

Fun Fact: 

The very first coffee packaging was done in 1720 in France, ground coffee was packaged in sacks of greased leather or bags treated on the outside with beeswax. This is believed to be the most authentic version of the laminated paper bag, initially utilized to preserve the flavors of coffee beans. The rest, as they say, is history.

Ecotact: Coffee’s Struggle Ends Here

The journey from the coffee farm to our cup is full of obstacles that can take away the very qualities that make coffee beans irresistible. Exposure to oxygen, moisture, heat, and cold during transportation can cause the beans to lose their freshness and vitality. But fear not, because there's a saviour in the world of coffee packaging: Ecotact. Unlike conventional packaging methods that offer limited protection against external elements, Ecotact's innovative approach revolves around the power of zero. The game-changer concept of power of zero is a philosophy that involves various factors aimed at safeguarding the integrity of coffee beans and grains.

Introducing Ecotact’s Power Of Zero

Ecotact is the ultimate solution for preserving the original taste of your coffee beans and other grains. With our innovative packaging technology, we've mastered the art of shielding your precious beans in the course of travel and storage. But what sets Ecotact apart from the rest? It's all about the power of zero!

Zeros: The Hero Of Ecotact

  1. Zero OTR (Oxygen Transmission Rate)

  2. Zero WVTR (Water Vapor Transmission Rate)

  3. Zero Change in Aroma and Flavor

  4. Zero Loss of Moisture

  5. Zero Environmental Impact with Zero Waste

  6. Zero Tough Pigments

  7. Zero Loss of Freshness

To understand the power of zero in the world of coffee/grains/cocoa, let’s deep dive into each of the above zeros. 

  1. Zero OTR (Oxygen Transmission Rate):
    Oxygen is the enemy when it comes to preserving the freshness of coffee beans. Ecotact has spent considerable time utilizing technology to monitor the performance of coffee bags. These eco-friendly packaging bags are crafted meticulously to ensure there is no scope for oxidation to cause spoilage. The use of innovative 9-layer hermetic packaging has brought quality checks like Zero Oxygen Transmission Rate(OTR).   

  1. Zero WVTR (Water Vapor Transmission Rate):
    Moisture is another culprit that can wreak havoc on the flavor and aroma of your coffee beans. Ecotact packaging features a Zero WVTR, preventing moisture from seeping in and compromising the quality of your beans.   

  1. Zero Change In Aroma And Flavor:
    With Ecotact packaging, you can rest assured that your coffee beans will retain their original aroma and flavor profile, free from any unwanted alterations. Each Ecotact bag is built strong with high oxygen and moisture barrier properties that keep green coffee/grains fresh throughout the supply chain. They also lock in aroma and can stand high temperatures of up to 90 degrees Celsius and up to 30 degrees Celsius. 

  1. Zero Loss Of Moisture:
    Moisture loss can lead to stale and bland coffee beans. Amongst our various multilayered green coffee bags, Ecotact coffee bags are the best option to maintain the ideal moisture level, ensuring that your beans stay fresh and flavorful. The ecological plastic bags inside burlap bags are extremely strong and have high oxygen and moisture barrier properties that keep the grain moisture levels intact and do not allow atmospheric moisture to enter the grains.

  1. Zero Environmental Impact With Zero Waste:
    Ecotact packaging is committed to sustainability, minimizing waste, and reducing carbon footprints. With Ecotact’s Zero Waste Box, we’re protecting the planet with cutting-edge recycling solutions. We are aligned and collaborate globally with the UN’s Envision 2030 and Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) for effective waste management. Currently active in North America and Australia, with plans to expand into Europe and Asia regions soon, we're poised to make a significant impact on a global scale. Our dedication to environmental sustainability reflects through our environmentally friendly coffee bags and packaging that are 100% recyclable.   

  1. Zero Tough Pigments: 

Clear plastics are highly preferred in recycling due to their greater material value and flexibility for dyeing. On the contrary, colored plastics, especially opaque ones, may contain concentrated lead, a persistent toxin that accumulates and limits their recycling potential. Recycling facilities often deem pigmented plastics as contaminants, leading to disposal rather than recycling. Additionally, the recycling process may degrade plastic quality, impacting its shelf life. Whereas Ecotact’s non-pigmented transparent bags are durable and can be easily recycled. They are trusted to protect your coffee during its journey from farms, to retail shelves, to your cup, visibly! 

  1. Zero Loss of Freshness:
    Ecotact’s green coffee bean packaging offers the perfect protection for green coffee/grains/cocoa, securing freshness along with taste and aroma. Our eco-friendly coffee packaging has a global presence in 40+ countries and we’re redefining food storage with our 9 layered bags that are completely eco-friendly! Ultimately, the goal of Ecotact packaging is to ensure that your coffee beans arrive at their destination as fresh and flavorful as the day they were harvested. 

In conclusion, when it comes to preserving the freshness and quality of your green coffee beans/cocoa/grains, Ecotact bags are unmatched!
