Roastar delivers local, sustainable & reduced cost packaging for café owners & operators


AUTHOR: Lameze Hendricks

Roastar has entered the coffee packaging market with innovative, sustainable and disruptive products to challenge the status quo. With the cost of doing business sharply on the rise, we are determined to partner with customers to help reduce their packaging spend.

“We know that costs are increasing exponentially,” says Roastar General Manager, Clive Jacobs. “Our blended logistics model reduces risk, improves speed to market and boosts cashflow. Local manufacture supports jobs and the economy, but importantly for our customers, we are able to visit you to help you identify and solve your packaging problems with innovative, sustainable solutions.” Clive brings more than 20 years of niche technical packaging experience to the business and promises laser-focus, value, innovation and specialist advice for the coffee packaging industry.

Our parent company, MPM Marketing Services, has a proud history of research and development, bringing revolutionary and exciting packaging products to the Australian and New Zealand food packaging market for more than 50 years. The Good Cup is one of these new, disruptive products. With an urgency to curb climate change and help the planet, its unique integrated lid design will help customers stand out from the crowd and also say goodbye to plastic lids for good. “You can do a world of good by making a simple change,” Clive says. “This cup will reduce your SKU’s, save you money and reduce your carbon footprint. It’s one of the most sustainable single use cups on the market”

While we are being recognised for innovative products like The Good Cup and our BeanShield kerbside recyclable coffee bag, we also offer a full suite of café supplies from hot cups and lids to stirrers, carry trays and washroom products - most available for custom branding. “We are laser-focused on keeping customers ahead of the sustainability curve while delivering a competitive edge on a full range of packaging for everything coffee.”

More than half of Roastar products are Australian-made. Many packaging players claim their products are sustainable, “but are they locally made?” Clive questions. “Our coffee cups are made in our Sydney factory and for every two containers of imported cups, we only need to bring in approximately one container of raw materials to manufacture the same quantity.” As the world burns fossil fuels and cuts down forests, carbon footprint has become important to many businesses wishing to make a sustainable change. “Choosing local manufacture supports Australian jobs and reduces the use of fossil fuels. A win for the planet and Australia!”

The Roastar offering includes hundreds of premium packaging products and café supplies. Our catalogue is focused on sustainable solutions with direct to end user pricing, while the Roastar online shop offers a quick and easy way to purchase.
