Buencafé Avocado Seeds Lid


Buencafé presents its new lid for coffee jars made from avocado pits.

The new lid is the result of the work at Buencafé with strategic allies from its supply chain – Riduco and Biofase Colombia – who together seek to add to sustainable proposals producing ecological packaging.

With this biodegradable material, Buencafé ratifies its commitment to sustainable packaging and reduction of plastic usage.

The lids contain a bio-based resin formulated by Biofase in Mexico, reducing the environmental footprint. Each lid contains 60 per cent organic biomass.

It takes two years for each lid to decompose. One dried processed avocado pit can be used to make two to three lids.

This solution is a pioneering process for Colombia and will be the first of its production at industrial scale.
