Huhtamaki has launched its new compostable Bioware Impresso double-walled hot cup. Adding to Huhtamaki’s existing Bioware compostable range, this new cup in a mixed sleeve of white and green designs utilizes the unique Impresso bubble emboss, which claims to provide enhanced insulation and a tactile touch for the holder.
Huhtamaki is a global specialist in packaging for food and drinks. With a network of 79 manufacturing units and an additional 24 sales-only offices in altogether 34 countries including India, the company promises to support its customers’ growth wherever it operates. The Huhtamaki group has its head office in Espoo, Finland.
The Bioware Impresso cup claims to utilize sustainable 100% PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) certified paperboard with a plant-based coating on the inside. According to the company, as with all of Huhtamaki’s Impresso double-wall cups, the innovative design means that the cup uses up to 25% less material than most other double- and triple-wall cups on the market. This claims to reduce the weight of packaging without compromising on performance. These new cups are manufactured in the UK and are available for customers across Europe.
“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,” says Becci Eplett, marketing manager, Huhtamaki Foodservice UK.
“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,” Eplett continues.
