Exclusive partnership with Coop

The retail company Coop is a strong partner for the launch of Costa Coffee in Switzerland. Together, Coop and Costa Coffee are revitalising and enriching the coffee range available in Switzerland. Lorenz Haschemi, in charge of coffee at Coca-Cola HBC Switzerland, comments: “Anyone who goes into one of Costa Coffee’s more than 4,000 shops immediately gets a sense of the passion for coffee that defines this brand. The new coffee capsules bring this feeling into the households of all Swiss coffee lovers.”

Looking ahead to the near future, Coop and Costa Coffee are planning additional activities for consumers, including a Costa Coffee truck that will stop at several locations throughout Switzerland.

Sustainably produced and recyclable

Deeply rooted in Costa Coffee’s DNA is an awareness of sustainability. All Costa Coffee products are 100% Rainforest Alliance–certified and made with coffee beans from sustainable production. Costa Coffee’s coffee capsules are made of aluminium and are recyclable. To facilitate recycling, Coca-Cola HBC Switzerland works with Igora (Genossenschaft für Aluminiumrecycling Schweiz), which collects, recycles and reuses the capsules.
