bio-bean Limited, the world’s largest recycler of coffee grounds and a certified B Corporation, has announced that its latest product to market, Inficaf, has been named in the cofinitive #21toWatch campaign. The award recognises the People, Companies, and the ‘Things’ that they create that are setting the standards in innovation and entrepreneurship across the globe.
bio-bean received the award on the evening of 3 March 2022 during a bespoke event where the company had the opportunity to present to a specially selected audience of investors, professional services, entrepreneurs, developers and other relevant businesses.
Head of commercial at bio-bean, Matt Keniston, accepted the award on behalf of bio-bean and spoke about why Inficaf is a sustainable materials solution for innovative product development. Inficaf is made from upcycled spent coffee grounds collected from UK coffee shops, office blocks, transport hubs and instant coffee manufacturers. It’s a consistent yet versatile material that reduces overall carbon emissions, and has applications in plastics, automotive friction, cosmetics, building materials and more.
Matt said: “We are proud that Inficaf has been included in the top #21ToWatch list, as the recognition will help us to raise awareness of the product, and ultimately lead to greater sustainable impact.”
cofinitive’s founder Faye Holland said: “We are delighted that bio-bean has been named in our Top21.2022 #21toWatch list. The accolade is well deserved, and we look forward to following their progress.
“Over the past 12 months we’ve continued to collate hundreds of submissions in response to our #21toWatch campaign and the criteria we set was pretty tough: each submission, whether it was a company, individual or ‘thing’ that they create, had to demonstrate a set of attributes: Innovation; Challenge; Influence; Viability; and Memorability. Our independent judges all agreed that all our winners have the potential for huge impact on a personal, company or product basis.”
