Ahlstrom Oyj: Ahlstrom strengthens leadership in sustainable single-serve coffee materials market in Europe

Ahlstrom Corporation PRESS RELEASE December 22, 2016 at 10.45

Ahlstrom strengthens leadership in sustainable single-serve coffee materials
market in Europe

Ahlstrom strengthens its leading position in Europe as a supplier of fully
compostable infusion materials for single-serve coffee capsules together with
two best-in-class coffee houses.

Ahlstrom will supply its unique solution made from polylactic acid (PLA) and
vegetable parchment materials to Caffe Vergnano in Italy and Cap Mundo in
France. The patented Ahlstrom GreenCapsule top lid(TM) is fully compostable
and biodegradable alternative to the common aluminum lid used in coffee
capsules. It combines optimum extraction for a perfect espresso with low
environmental foot print.

Roughly ten billion single-serve coffee capsules are consumed in Europe
annually, while currently less than 5% of the capsules are made from
compostable and biodegradable materials. An increasing number of coffee
houses are looking for compostable alternatives to differentiate their offer
and to answer concerns about the environmental effects. The global market for
single-serve coffee capsules has grown at a double-digit rate in the past two

The Ahlstrom GreenCapsule top lid(TM) won the "best new packaging in coffee
2016" award at the World of Coffee exhibition in Dublin, Ireland. Ahlstrom
produces PLA-based materials, which can be also used in tea bags and other
food packaging solutions, at its plant in Chirnside, the U.K
