“The hot drinks market is extremely competitive and customers are looking for environmentally sound choices.”
Finnish packaging manufacturer Huhtamaki has added a new double-walled, compostable hot drinks cup to its Bioware range.
The new Bioware Impresso Double Walled Hot Cup is manufactured in the UK, and utilises sustainable 100% PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) paperboard, with a plant-based PLA coating on the inside.
According to the packaging firm, the cup also features the company’s Impresso bubble emboss, which provides insulation and a pleasant touch for users, while allowing drinks to stay warm.
Huhtamaki (@HuhtamakiGroup) also claims that Impresso’s double-wall cups use “up to 25% less material than most other smooth-walled double and triple wall cups on the market,” helping to save packaging material without compromising the performance of the cup.
Becci Eplett, marketing manager at Huhtamaki UK, said: “We are experts in both cup design and manufacture, and our latest innovation, ‘feel good’, adds a compostable double wall cup to the Bioware range with our unique Impresso outer wrap that feels good to hold and provides enhanced insulation. The compostable Impresso has EN13432 certification which means that it is compostable at approved composting facilities.
“The hot drinks market is extremely competitive and customers are looking for environmentally sound choices. For those with access to industrial composting Huhtamaki’s ‘feel good’ Impresso cup is the ideal solution. Our new ‘feel good’ Impresso cup offers the perfect solution for an operator to deliver an excellent drinking experience as well as a product that is made from PEFC paperboard, with a plant-based lining that is certified compostable.”
