Keurig’s New K-Rounds + How To Good To Go Saves Millions of Meals

Keurig has taken a bold step forward with the unveiling of its first-ever 100 percent compostable coffee pods, dubbed “K-Rounds.” This innovation not only marks a significant milestone in the company’s journey toward sustainability but also addresses the longstanding issue of plastic waste from traditional coffee pods. In this episode of the Xtalks Food Podcast, Sydney talks about the new sustainable offering, which was designed exclusively for Keurig’s new Alta machine. K-Rounds feature a revolutionary composition without plastic or aluminum, using instead a thin cellulose wrapper around compacted coffee grounds. Beyond sustainability, K-Rounds offer versatility with a variety of specialty grinds and sizes, catering to different coffee preferences. Among a slew of competitors offering similar products, the team wonders whether K-Rounds will fall short or whether name recognition will help boost awareness and sales.

Also in this episode, Sydney talks about Too Good To Go, a pioneering company that leverages technology to bridge the gap between surplus food and hungry consumers. Sydney shares insights from her interview with Andrea Li, head of Canadian operations at Too Good To Go. In its less than three years in Canada, the company has already saved four million of meals from waste, with more partnerships in the works to help save millions more. Too Good To Go has also made significant strides in making sustainable choices accessible to everyone. With over two million users in Canada, the platform has facilitated partnerships with major brands like Tim Horton’s. Li hinted at upcoming collaborations with a range of businesses, from grocery chains to independent, small-scale establishments. The team commends the app for helping both consumers and foodservice establishments participate in the fight against food waste.
