Packaging manufacturer Huhtamaki has added a new double-walled, compostable hot drinks cup to its Bioware range.
The new ‘feel good’ 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.
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 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: “In this competitive market, it’s crucial for an operator to provide an excellent on the go experience.
“They must ensure that their hot drink reaches the customer in perfect condition, and excellent quality packaging is a necessity, it has to protect what’s inside and allow the contents to be thoroughly enjoyed, so the customer has a brilliant experience.
“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 PLA lining that is certified compostable.
“By combining Huhtamaki’s packaging knowledge and the renewable, recyclable and compostable material base that we utilise, we are able to cater to a variety of needs for environmentally optimal packaging, manufactured right here in the UK.”
