When packaging becomes ‘Art’ you know there’s something unique about it. Packaging has long been more than a simple container or wrapper for a product that protects it, facilitates handling and details its features and specifications. Our primary motive has ever since been to ace the packaging for green coffee beans and dried grains so that the freshness is intact. Curating the packaging and storing bags requires a science along with art in order to achieve desired results. With several years of research and development and satiated clients we know we are at it.

With green coffee, the biggest challenge is it’s shelf life. No matter how good in quality the green coffee beans are, the freshness and aroma will reduce in a short span of time. However, if it is hermetically packed in vacuum sealed bags,it can retain it’s fragrance and flavour upto more than a year. This takes care of the entire supply chain journey from a producer to a miller/exporter/importer/trader/roaster etc.  

What kind of packaging is the most suitable for your coffee depends on several factors. Factors like how you are storing your product, how the product is going to be shipped or where it is going to be sold and if the end customer is a retail customer or an industrial buyer, need to be considered while packaging the product.
