Güdpod Launches Fully Compostable Beverage Pods

NEWBURGH, N.Y. — Güdpod Corp. announced the signing of an exclusive partnership with Imper SpA (Milano, Italy) for the North American distribution  rights of its patented, compostable, pod-based beverage technology Güdpod Compostables. These first-of-their- kind pods are compatible with Keurig K-Cup coffee & tea and Nespresso espresso pod brewing platforms but set themselves  apart due to being 100% compostable in only 90 days in commercial composting facilities and offer a 24-month guarantee.

“Although single-serve brewing systems have revolutionized how we consume coffee, tea and espresso beverages, more and more consumers are concerned by the  tremendous waste of single-use plastic and aluminum and the damage to our  environment”, notes Chris Rohde, Güdpod CEO. Less than 10% of all plastic  produced gets recycled. Unlike other pods on the market, Güdpod compostable  technology does not use virgin plastic, metals, or petrochemicals in its cups nor does it  require a cup to be disassembled by the consumer to be recycled.

Eight years of development and an €180MM ($214M+ USD) R&D investment has resulted in Imper’s creation of this innovative pod technology that not only offers all  the advantages of an encapsulated coffee and espresso pod but is also fully  compostable. The pod’s plant-based multi-layer substrate protects the contents from  oxygen, light, and moisture degradation for a full 24 months. Once the pods are used  and recycled, they fully biodegrade in 90 days in commercial composting facilities. All Güdpod compostable capsules have been rigorously tested and fully certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) and numerous other sustainability organizations.

Güdpod was founded on the principle of bringing disruptive innovation to the health & wellness space with its single-serve smoothie and shake nutritional platform and is now proud to innovate the coffee, tea and espresso category with sustainable  compostable pod technology. Through its partnership with Imper SpA, Güdpod is able to deliver all the quality and convenience of single serve brewing platforms in an environmentally friendly format you can feel good about using at home or in the office.

Güdpod compostable pods are available in Mitaly branded Keurig K Cup and Nespresso compatible pods. Mitaly is a premium Italian coffee and espresso beverage brand available in a variety of roasts and flavor profiles to please the most discerning palates. Güdpod is currently in conversations to bring additional brands of premium roasters and specialty retailers to this new, innovative technology. Look out for your favorite brew online and in stores and offices nationwide.
