Peerless Coffee saves $100K/yr by reducing Mylar packaging waste
Peerless Coffee & Tea Company in Oakland purchased computerized packaging equipment to reduce expensive Mylar packaging waste, previously generated by their coffee bagging equipment. This waste prevention effort has resulted in savings of over $100,000 annually. Peerless also outfitted one of their route delivery trucks with reusable totes instead of disposable cardboard cartons.
The bottom line: Between $10,000 and $15,000 annual savings on cardboard costs alone.
