With the success of the 2017 Australian Roasting Championship, we’re thrilled to announce that Castaway Food Packaging will be one of the major sponsors of the Australian Roasting Championship for the next three years.

The Australian Coffee Roasting Championships is a new competition from the Australian Specialty Coffee Association (ASCA). Coffee roasters compete by grading, assessing, and roasting green coffee samples. Judges will then perform a sensory assessment of the coffee to determine which cup has the best quality.

“We would like to express our gratitude to Castaway products for their extended commitment to the Australian specialty coffee industry, and for helping us to add value to the industry through the continuation of new events such as the Australian Roasting Championship,” said Kieran Westlake, ASCA Vice President.

Over the past 36 years, Castaway® food packaging products have been at the forefront of innovation for the foodservice industry. Knowing how important it is to keep coffee beans fresh, we have launched the new Castaway® coffee bags to provide cafés and roasters with a comprehensive packaging solution.

Our new range of premium, high quality coffee bags come in two varieties. We have standard 1kg side gusset bags for wholesale, and block bottom bags with Peel ‘n Seal zippers.

The 1kg side gusset bag is t1he ideal choice for coffee roasters who sell their beans wholesale for baristas to use behind the counter. On the other hand, the block bottom bag with Peel ‘n Seal zipper is perfect for retail sales. Customers can peel the tab to open the bag and use the zipper to reseal the bag for maximum freshness.

Custom printing is also available to ensure great brand promotion.

“We are excited to be able to announce this new partnership with Castaway products,” said Mr. Westlake. “Castaway products have been leading the way in innovation for over three decades, and their new coffee bags are no exception. We look forward to working with such an experienced industry supplier.”
