World-leading coffee cup and packaging manufacturer, MTPak Coffee has confirmed their attendance and participation in PRF Colombia, as a Gold Sponsor.
THE MTPAK COFFEE STORY
In 2016, Mark Zhou founded MTPak Coffee after noticing a rapid increase in the number of specialty coffee brands in Asia. More than six years later, his company is one of the most widely recognised coffee packaging providers in the industry, directly supplying roasters from Europe to North America to Australasia.
“In 2015 a lot of new coffee brands appeared, which is amazing because before that we only knew Starbucks and Costa,” Mark says.
“At the time, we didn’t really know what specialty coffee was.”
After visiting the 2016 edition of the Hotelex expo in Shanghai, Mark noticed that the number of specialty coffee brands had risen yet again, this time to between 150 and 200 companies. However, the quality, innovation and variation in coffee packaging remained unchanged.
“The numbers just kept going up. At the time, we were mainly supplying flexible packaging and only a few coffee bags,” Mark explained.
“During and after the show, I realised there was a lot of demand for high-quality coffee packaging.”
Today, their commitment to sustainability and innovation is helping the coffee industry work towards its goal of creating a circular economy, while allowing specialty roasters to reach their customers like never before.
MTPAK COFFEE AT PRF COLOMBIA
As Gold Sponsor of PRF Colombia, MTPak Coffee will enable numerous coffee producers, roasters and other industry professionals to meet and network at the two-day forum.
The MTPak Coffee team will also host a booth over the two days, sharing a range of their customisable and sustainable packaging made specifically for coffee.
“Each edition of PRF is made possible through partnerships with companies and individuals who are committed to the improvement of the coffee sector,” says PRF Director, Julio Guevara.
“Having MTPak Coffee partner with and attend the forum to share their innovative products displays their passion for driving our industry forward.”
