European packaging solutions provider UNI Packaging has secured a contract to supply digitally printed pouches for coffee roaster, Purssells London.

Under the terms of the agreement, the company will supply pouches for the Purssells' speciality coffee blends.

UNI Packaging source Mike Davison said: "This is a success story about a large multi-national manufacturing group assisting a UK start-up to find a practical packaging solution - including materials, print options, pack format and a venting valve - and thereafter providing added-value to their supply chain through ongoing support, advice and quality of product."

The contract will see UNI Packaging supply the digitally printed pouches made from a PE/aluminium laminate, which will feature a tear notch, re-close zipper and venting valve.

"In fulfilling this aim UNI Packaging has delivered on all counts, supplying a high quality product, whilst maintaining a highly efficient service."

Launched last year, Purssells' product suite comprises of six distinct roasted coffees.
