Kaffekassan is making sustainable products that have a positive impact on the environment to help sports clubs and school classes earn money with a both digital and offline self-help service.
When a sports team or a school class is in need of funding for a team- or school trip, they often ask their parents for money. But that’s not a permanent solution to the issue. So, an industry for letting the kids sell products was born.
Today, this is a market of more than 500 MSEK across the Nordic countries (with Sweden being the biggest market, followed by Norway and Finland).
These youth teams and school classes are still selling products from big companies that have a focus on profits, and not on what’s best for the environment. Ingredients such as palm oil in thousands of products that are sold by school classes and sports clubs each year.
That’s where Kaffekassan steps in.
We want to make sure that the world gets what it deserves. That’s why we’re committed to build sustainable products for a sustainable future. Everything we do is with one goal in mind - make the products of this industry more sustainable. Our current product portfolio consists of a eco-certified ground coffee, a thermos bottle (perfect for stopping the use of one-time mugs), biodegradable coffee capsules, and more.
When we (the founders) still was in school and sold products to raise money for a school trip, we thought about how much the company’s products was destroying for the environment. And what’s more? They also kept a large majority of the profits instead of sharing it to our school class that was actually selling the products instead of using that profit to invest in making their service better and products more sustainable.
This created a spark - a spark that have lit up and won’t stop until we’ve made a significant impact to our industry.
