NEXE Innovations, a Canadian company, has announced plans to begin production of its patented plant-based compostable coffee pods in late March or early April. The company has renovated a former automotive plant in Windsor, Ontario, and plans to make it the centre of North American production for its coffee pods. The pods can completely breakdown in an industrial landfill in as few as 17 days and the facility will initially employ seven to ten people, with plans to grow the workforce to 30 to 50 people by the end of 2024.

NEXE Innovations’ President, Ash Guglani, cited the ease of access into the US and Windsor’s status as an automotive hub where automation is prevalent as reasons for selecting the location.

NEXE Innovations Plan to Produce Sustainable Coffee Pods

The plant will produce K-pods and containers for use in Nespresso machines, and the company plans to partner with other coffee brands for future growth. NEXE Innovations is also looking at developing environmentally friendly packaging for sectors such as cosmetics and yogurt cups. The company plans to use compostable materials in all of its products and become vertically integrated to keep all aspects of production in-house.

The plant is part of the company’s plan to scale up its business, with an aim to produce half a billion pods by the end of 2024. The company believes there is a lot of room for growth and disruption in the 60 billion pods used each year. The NEXE pods can hold about two more grams of coffee than traditional pods and have taken the company seven years to develop.

Guglani praised the Windsor-Essex region’s expertise in advanced manufacturing and industrial automation, saying it will help drive the company to scale. The company has invested $9 million in renovating the Windsor plant and installing cutting-edge equipment to produce its compostable coffee pods.
