Tea and coffee packaging

High barrier composites – Uniflex packaging keeps all the aroma inside, your coffee or tea will be as fresh as the day you sealed it.
Breathing valves – roasted coffee beans produce gas during storage. Breathing valves allow excess gas to leave freely while preserving package integrity and maintaining stable pressure inside.
Controlled storage conditions – with Uniflex packaging you can be sure that your product will be preserved with unchanged moisture, oxygen, CO2, and light levels throughout its shelf life.

Coffee packaging structure

Packaging solutions for coffee are based on PET, aluminium foil, and polyethylene. Every composite serves its dedicated function: PET protects against oxygen, the foil provides great protection from many environmental factors, PE film serves as a sealing layer and guarantees your package is airtight and moisture-proof. This combination is optimal for conserving the aroma and taste of premium coffee.

  • PET film (good barrier against oxygen)
  • aluminium foil (high barrier material, good all-around protection)
  • transparent polyethylene (protects against water vapours)

Composite materials for optimal coffee packaging

Tea packaging structure

Uniflex offers packaging for both bigger tea portions (50, 100, 200, or more grams) and individual packages (tea sachets). Even though tea is less vulnerable to the environment than coffee, we use the best composites for its packaging, protecting your product from moisture, foreign smells, and excessive sunlight.

  • biaxially oriented polypropylene film (high transparency, good protection against condensed water)
  • biaxially oriented metallized polypropylene film (good protection against sunlight and condensed water)
