Roasted coffee wholesale supplier F Gaviña & Sons has recycled more than 150,000 coffee pods and espresso capsules in partnership with TerraCycle.

The company reached the major recycling milestone through its Coffee Pod Recycling Program.

F Gavina & Sons executive marketing director Lisette Gaviña Lopez said: “Our commitment to sustainability is at the core of our family and company values, and continuing to innovate while minimising our environmental impact is at the centre of everything we do.

“We are excited to see an overwhelming response to our TerraCycle recycling program and look forward to continuing to provide delicious coffee options for our customers while maintaining a greener coffee footprint.”

Launched in April, the Coffee Pod Recycling Program recycles used coffee pods and capsules from two F Gaviña & Sons brands, Don Francisco’s Coffee and Café La Llave espresso.

Collected packaging is melted and remoulded to make new recycled products while the coffee residue is supplied to an industrial composting plant.

TerraCycle CEO and founder Tom Szaky said: “The Coffee Pod Recycling Program offers coffee connoisseurs the opportunity to conveniently enjoy their favourite brews, minus the guilt over the waste generated from single-serve pods and capsules.

“Reaching this recycling milestone in such a short period of time reinforces the fact that consumers are eager to make the world, and the coffee industry, greener.”

F Gavina & Sons makes Don Francisco’s Coffee, Café La Llave and varieties of other family-crafted coffees.
