Allegro Espresso coffee in soft pods

Luigi Lavazza S.p.A.  / Allegro Espresso coffee in soft pods / 2013
Idee per l’estero
Alluminio, Plastica
Luigi Lavazza SpA has altered the design of the packaging for its Allegro range of coffee in soft pods for export. The previous packaging, composed of a multilayer PET-aluminium-LDPE bag, which featured a system whereby one could re-seal the coffee after opening, was modified to eliminate this latter component (known as a “tin tie” - HDPE-iron wire-paper). This change reduced the amount of raw materials used by 8%.

Prevention cornerstones

Raw material saving
Packing system simplification

Results

The improvement in the studied parameters is due to a lower environmental footprint thanks to the reduced amount of raw materials used in the packaging compared to previous types.
