UCC Coffee has announced the launch of a new single serve Aluminium coffee capsule, compatible with Nespresso machines.
The new capsule was developed at UCC Coffee’s Centre of Excellence in Valence, France, and utilises innovations in packing and grinding technology to provide superior performance and in-cup quality. With an on-trend, premium look, the Aluminium capsule will be available in 11 colours.
The capsule will be available as private label from autumn 2019 before becoming a line extension of its Orang Utan Coffee and Lyons brands later in the year.
The launch is the latest addition to UCC’s tiered line up of single serve capsules, which also includes Dolce Gusto-compatible and Nespresso-compatible plastic products.
The product is available now for retail, foodservice and hospitality operators. They will be showcased at two trade events in May: The European Coffee Expo and PLMA, Amsterdam.
Marcus Swift, Commercial Director, UCC Coffee UK & Ireland, commented: “Convenience, quality and consistency are behind the growth of the capsule market at home, and it’s the same benefit for out of home operators who use single serve capsules within their coffee offer. Single serve capsules are used in many out of home offers including workplace settings, hotel rooms and many small retail businesses who have a hospitality element to their offer. This new product looks great and meets consumer demands for a premium looking capsule that also delivers a great cup of coffee.”
