NEXE’s Competitive Edge
NEXE’s BPI certified compostable, single-serve beverage pods target the market of 80+ billion single-serve plastic and aluminum pods. NEXE’s single-serve pod features innovative technology protected by patents, which NEXE believes allows more volume per pod than our competitors while delivering what the Company believes is an unrivalled “pour-over” coffee experience. The BPI certification is a third-party verification of ASTM standards for compostable products and is intended to protect consumers against false claims and greenwashing. The BPI certification also requires products to be PFAS-free. NEXE believes that these unique advantages will likely position NEXE as a preferred choice for premium coffee brands seeking a sustainable solution.
