Coffee - 250 grams
Before
After

JAVA has simplified the packaging of its coffee packs of 250 grams. Today, the coffee is packed in a simple plastic foil bag weighing only 6 grams. 

The pack used to be enclosed in a flat cardboard box weighing 27,5 grams. Discarding that box has resulted in a considerable weight saving. In addition, a greater number of coffee packs can now fit into the secondary packaging. One corrugated cardboard box (210 grams) now holds twenty packs of coffee compared to the previous sixteen, which represents a saving in transport of 25%.
