Dear Customers, Dear Colleagues,
With every communication you’ve received from Ti recently, you’ve seen our commitment to
Ti values. Words like crea

Ti
ve not only sign off our
emails, they also convey the way we approach our business and our relationships—with
colleagues and with clients.
The theme of this publication, and one of the most important of our values, is connec
Ti
ons.
In the previous issue, I challenged the Ti team to reach out and connect with each other and with our customers
frequently. Through ongoing connections, we learn more, solve more challenges, and experience the synergy
that leads to innovation and growth. When we work together, we connect the best thinking, best practices, and
best solutions to solve our customers’ packaging challenges. This edition of Ti News will highlight many of our
problem-solving brands such as NATIVIA
®
, EXTENDO
®
and DERPROSA
®
.
While we encourage informal connections in the course of our everyday work, we also find great value in
international trade shows and conferences. Recent events like Labelexpo in Belgium, Andina Pack in Colombia
and our DERPROSA-Ti open house in Spain afforded us many opportunities to connect with current and
prospective clients around the globe. In addition, we’ve already initiated work on Taghleef’s own international
seminar, the Label Institute, to be held in Miami in April 2019.
Talent sharing within our own organization is another important way we connect colleagues across regions and
industries. It’s not unusual for Ti employees to take on new assignments, even re-locating across continents to
tackle new opportunities. There are no boundaries when it comes to encouraging broader thinking, fresh insights
and creative collaboration. It’s also a corporate value to connect with the communities where we are located.
From collecting donations for a colleague’s family in hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico, to holding blood drives
in Oman, to running the Telethon charity race in Italy, Taghleef connects with communities on a personal and
corporate level.
I hope you will take the opportunity to connect with us to discuss how our unique spectrum of films can help you
accelerate your business goals. Whether greater brand recognition, smaller environmental footprint, or industry-
leading visual impact, your priorities are our priorities at Taghleef Industries.
Sincerely,
Dr. Detlef Schuhmann
CEO Ti Group
Single-serve coffee brewing systems,
especially those using the pre-filled pods
or cups, continue to grow in popularity.
Users appreciate their speed, convenience,
and ability to offer every person the
flavor and blend of his or her choice.
In fact, approximately 48 billion single
serve capsules are filled globally every
year, with 73%made of plastic and
27%made of metal (aluminum). It’s an
attractive market, with high margins and
an expected growth of over 7% during
the period 2017-2021 (source: Technavio
market research on global coffee pods
market).
The challenge? Coffee pods have
been difficult to recycle due to their
specific material mix, as well as
adding contamination to the recycle
stream caused by the coffee grounds.
Unfortunately, used pods usually end up
in the trash. As most pods comprise 6
grams of coffee per 3 grams of material,
it’s clear that valuable organics are lost to
landfill.
The solution? Almost all big players in
the coffee market have come up with
their own version of compostable coffee
capsules. In March 2015, Lavazza (Italy)
launched a compostable capsule for
espresso coffee made of Novamont
Mater-Bi®. In North America, Toronto-
based Club Coffee has developed
PürPod100, a compostable single-serve
coffee pod compatible with Keurig
machines. In June 2017, McDonald’s
Canada, in partnership with Kraft Heinz
Canada, launched PürPods.
Developed in 2016, Taghleef’s NATIVIA®
D808 is the most suitable PLA film for
this growing and highly profitable market
segment. D808, in 20µ thickness, is
currently used as the sealing layer in a
complex structure for compostable coffee
capsules lidding. Its thermal properties
guarantee improved heat stability,
fundamental for an application requiring
brewing temperatures between 90 and
100°C. At Taghleef, our success depends
on staying awake and alert to new
opportunities to meet the needs of our
customers and theirs.
Guilt-free coffee pods,
