Jimmy’s Iced Coffee reveals new twist with plant-based bio caps


Chilled beverage brand Jimmy’s Iced Coffee is adopting bio-based caps to reduce its impact on the environment.

The new bio-based caps, set to hit shelves this December, are the brand’s latest step towards fully renewable packaging and achieving its pledge to be plastic free by 2020.

The new caps will perform in exactly the same way as the original in terms of strength and weight, but the CO2 output will be 50% less than that used to make the brand’s original plastic cap. This combined with the renewable paper-based carton, means their packaging is now made from 54% plant-based materials.
