Innovative Performance.

Our solutions help build market share, extend shelf life and improve sustainability.

When it comes to coffee packaging, most companies want the best of all possible worlds: an eye-catching package that offers product protection, extended shelf life, improved sustainability and consumer convenience. And, they want it all at the lowest possible price.

Enter Sonoco. Major coffee brands and private label companies are turning to Sonoco for coffee packaging solutions. Coffee manufacturers can draw from Sonoco’s diverse packaging expertise to create single solutions that help reduce costs while building market share.

Flexibles

Seal the relationship with your customers.

Our new flexible pouch with Cross-Seal technology, ideal for the coffee market, seals along a side corner of the bag rather than via a traditional back seam, which results in four full panels for bright, clear graphics to help drive brand identity and product differentiation. Each seam is specially designed to maximize both ease of opening and product freshness.

Plastics

More than 50 years ago, Sonoco was one of the first to venture into the brand new technology of injection molding. Today, we still focus on innovation, with cutting-edge in-mold labeling capabilities and 95% of our products made using custom injection molds. We offer design, prototyping, mold-making, production and assembly at locations across North America and Europe. Our customers include Maxwell House (International Cafe plastic tubs). Learn more

Rigid Paperboard

Sonoco’s rigid paper containers are manufactured with a minimum of 70% recycled fiber content, and they provide quality, freshness and reclosable packaging as a durable and lightweight container.

The high barrier liner and bottom metal closure on our cans protect the coffee’s freshness and flavor by locking out oxygen and moisture.  Created especially for the coffee market, the valved, peelable foil membrane lets you pack and seal immediately after roasting, eliminating the need for extended hold times for degassing while maximizing flavor and aroma--with no vacuum necessary. To top it off, our cans are completed with a flexible plastic overcap for easy reclose and extended shelf life.  And with a palette of colors to choose from, it’s easy to find the shade that fits best with your label and brand.

Sonoco is proud to meet the needs of consumers as we offer a variety of BPA non-intent options in this product line.
