Taylors of Harrogate has collaborated with Parkside to create a new pack for its range of coffee products.

The new coffee bag, designed with an easy-open flow wrap to reportedly improve the consumer opening experience, is based on a high barrier triplex foil laminate designed to extend the shelf-life of the coffee while maintaining optimum flavour.

Daniel Fox, Packaging Buyer at Taylors commented: “We launched a project to bring coffee bags in-house and wanted to keep the same user-friendly attributes while maintaining the high-quality of the product. We have previously worked with Parkside and know they have an excellent reputation for developing innovative flexible packaging solutions. We’re delighted with the results and excited about the consumer response.”

The bags are printed using high definition flexo and are comprised of a conventional Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), Foil and Polyethylene (PE) high barrier laminate to ensure the quality and shelf-life performance of the coffee is maintained. Parkside also utilised its Parkscribe laser technology to create an easy-open feature.

“Our family business has long been committed to trading responsibly, but over the last few years, we’ve transformed the way we work with our suppliers and growers. That means collaborating with key partners such as Parkside to establish long-term relationships that provide us with security, quality, and continuous improvement is key to our ethos," Fox continued.

Business Development Manager at Parkside, Staci Bye said: “Taylors had heard about our industry-leading packaging designs through previous solutions we had created for the company and approached us with the aim of developing something more convenient for the brand's range of coffee bags. It was a great project to be involved in and we were privileged to help a brand as prestigious as Taylors.”
