Social commitment: consumers and the environment
End users – i.e. Consumers, – are protected by the Group, because all production processes follow meticulous and rigorous procedures.
Proof is provided by the UNI EN ISO 9001 certificate, aimed at ensuring a strict and scrupulous control of all company processes: this means that the needs and interests of client companies, and consequently consumers, are always respected.
Suffice it to say that, in the field of coffee alone, more than 11,000 checks are carried out, starting right from its countries of origin, where the raw coffee beans are selected. There Coind’s experts analyse and select only the best coffee beans, to guarantee, always, the highest quality to its distributor clients and to those who every day drink a Coind brand coffee.
Nature and the environment have always been at the centre of Coind’s cares, and every year it does its best to further reduce the environmental impact of its production.
In particular, the Group has continuously shown itself to be passionately sensitive about the issue of reducing and homogenising packaging materials, in 2000 receiving the prestigious “Packaging Oscar” from the Istituto Italiano Imballaggio.
This contest, launched back in 1957, aims to reward the best packaging concepts designed or marketed in Italy. Generally the themes on which the awards are based are, in rotation, “Technical and Technological Innovation”, “Quality Design” and “The Environment”.
In the case of Coind the prize was awarded for the environmental category, where it developed the idea of replacing the plastic wrapping on multipack ground coffee lines with adhesive tape. Extremely simple, but with a strong impact on the environment and the amount of plastic produced.
This suggestion led to a weight reduction of about 3 grammes for each pack of coffee in the two-pack format, and of about 6 grammes for the four-pack format, saving many tons of plastic packaging materials every year.
