Crown’s single-use coffee can

La Colombe premium coffee


Crown Beverage Packaging North America has manufactured a pre-portioned single-use can for La Colombe Coffee Roasters. The can delivers cafe quality ground coffee to consumers in a vessel that is both convenient for athome use and extends the shelf life up
to five times. The MiniVault combines Crown’s 150ml (5.1oz) slim style beverage can with a custom 360 End and is filled with La Colombe’s premium Corsica coffee.

The end is fully removable, enabling users to easily pour the ground coffee into a filter or device for brewing. Each can contains a precise 1.3 ounces of coffee under pressure to lock in freshness and to eliminate the guesswork of measurement and the need for additional tools. Ron Skotleski, director of marketing, North America, Crown Beverage Packaging, said, “La Colombe recognizes the value that a differentiating package can bring to its brand.”

The 360 End also features a grind guard, or a thin plate of flexible aluminum, which acts as a food-safe protector and prevents coffee grounds from spilling upon removal of the end.
In addition, like all beverage cans, the MiniVault is 100 percent and infinitely recyclable, protects the coffee from exposure to elements such as light and air and adds a premium look and feel to the brand.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
