LAVAZZA PROFESSIONAL: YOUR SUSTAINABLE VENDING PARTNER
With over half of global consumers reducing the amount of plastic they use in the past twelve months*, we know our customers and consumers care about the planet, and so do we.
We have been making great strides forward in our mission to deliver even more sustainable drinks vending technologies, from drinks sourcing, to operations and how we can reduce the use of plastics and waste sent to landfill - helping workplaces achieve their own sustainability goals, working together for a brighter future for our planet.
We are committed to sustainable practices from sustainable agriculture, ensuring our raw materials are sourced responsibly, to sustainable operations that reduce the impact on people and our planet.
Reaching out to our expert coffee and tea growing communities around the world, we help to provide advice and training on more sustainable growing practices resulting in improved income and quality of life for their families.
From raw materials and packaging to machine and cup recycling, we set an enviable standard. Our ISO 14001 Environmental Management System is fundamental to rigorously addressing and continuously improving our environmental performance.
It covers our factories, our offices, the development of new products and the effect our current products have on the environment.
NEW KLIX Eco Cup™:
The KLIX Eco Cup™ is made from biodegradable materials and is different to the widely used paper cups on the market. A first in vending, it is the first cup not to use Polyethylene (PE) lining in the product after years of research and development.
Our cup is made with paper sourced from sustainably managed forests accredited by PEFC, and coated with a unique water based dispersion barrier that bypasses the need for a PE-based coating used in most paper cups.
The technology uses a blend of natural and synthetic polymers, similar to pigment coated paper and means our cups can be recycled just like newspapers or cereal boxes in normal paper waste streams.
Switching to KLIX Eco Cup can lead to a reduction in environmental footprint of over 63%*, helping our customers lower their environmental footprint without compromising on great tasting, accessible drinks in the workplace.
