100-Million Coffee Capsule Deal: PAPACKS and EURO-CAPS Conquer the Market with Plastic-Free Innovation and Win the Prestigious WorldStar Packaging Award

Cologne

The coffee capsule, developed together in a more than five-year
fantastic collaboration between Euro-Caps and PAPACKS, is made from
renewable, FSC®-certified raw materials, representing a significant
advancement in the sustainable packaging industry. It greatly minimizes
waste and optimizes resource usage.

These innovative oil-resistant and water-resistant fiber-based coffee
capsules ensure coffee freshness and enable smooth use in capsule coffee
machines, significantly reducing environmental impact, in line with our
principles of social responsibility and circular economy.

With great pride and joy, we announce that PAPACKS and Euro-Caps have
been awarded the esteemed WorldStar Packaging Award 2024 for their
innovative fiber-based coffee capsule. This honor from the World
Packaging Organization (WPO) recognizes our ongoing commitment to
sustainability and high-quality standards.

With this step and the expansion to other compatible capsule models,
Euro Caps, in collaboration with PAPACKS, becomes one of the first
industrial-scale suppliers of a functioning fiber-based coffee capsule,
which can significantly reduce the current use of plastic and aluminum
capsules. According to calculations by DUH (Deutsche Umwelthilfe [https://www.duh.de/]),
Germans consumed a total of 3.4 billion coffee capsules in 2019,
equating to approximately 13,500 tons of waste.

The joint development with Euro-Caps and PAPACKS challenged numerous
experts from both companies to ensure the final product functions
flawlessly, especially in its properties of oil resistance and water
resistance, completely without plastic and aluminum. This innovation in
design and technology has been registered as an international design
patent with the World Intellectual Property Organization (DM/230736).

Tahsin Dag, Founder & CEO of PAPACKS, comments:

"We are proud of our developments in coffee capsules, demonstrating
our commitment to environmental protection and sustainability.
Transforming rapidly renewable, FSC®-certified raw materials into
compostable capsules represents a significant advancement. Our
innovative and outstanding collaboration with EURO-CAPS has been
instrumental in achieving these innovations. This partnership emphasizes
our mission to advance eco-friendly packaging solutions and to serve
both our customers and the environment."

Anthony Kay, R&D Engineer at EURO-CAPS, comments:

"The advancements we have made at EURO-CAPS in the development of
coffee capsules are a clear indication of our innovative strength and
commitment to the environment. Through our collaboration with PAPACKS,
we have succeeded in developing capsules that are not only
environmentally friendly but also technologically advanced. Our focus
was on creating a capsule that is fully compostable without compromising
on the quality and taste experience of the coffee. This is a significant
step forward for sustainability in the coffee capsule industry."

We thank our dedicated development and production team, as well as all
involved partners, for their devoted work. The award will be honored at
the WorldStar Awards Ceremony and Gala Dinner in Bangkok, Thailand, on
June 15, 2024.
