Benders introduce new Venezia design vending cup range with innovative 12oz Max cup

Thursday November 16, 2017

According to the Automatic Vending Association (AVA) the UK vending industry turnover has increased by 2 per cent to £1.53 billion, with more operators expecting growth this year than delivered growth in 2016.

The average hot beverage vending machine dispenses 282 units per week and consumers are expecting a larger variety of high quality premium coffee options.

Benders single wall paper vending cups are specifically developed to support the vending of premium hot drinks. As an industry specialist, Benders understand vending and that when it comes to the perfect vend, quality and performance are key. With expertly ‘engineered construction for reliability’, Benders vending cups provide trouble free vending with the look and feel of Italian coffee houses. Driven by the influence of the home of the first coffee shop in Europe, Venice, Bender’s new Venezia range (available in 6oz, 7oz squat, 7oz tall, 9oz tall and the new 12oz Max) offers an artisan coffee house feel, for added visual impact when dispensing.

The high levels of detail and contrast of the stylish Venezia ‘Steam’ design contrast superbly with the clarity and definition of its ‘Beans’ design. The new Venezia stock designs showcase the amazing new print quality Benders can deliver.

The Venezia range also brings a little heritage to Benders. This cup design has been named after Venice, where not only the very first coffee shop was founded but also where Benders began life as a small family business in 1899. The Italians are renowned worldwide for their coffee, and the name of the Venezia range is a nod to the excellent reputation and Benders’ Italian owners.

Within the Venezia range Benders have also introduced the new 12oz Max cup. This cup shape evolved in response to market feedback from vending operators. Based on Benders’ popular 12oz vending cup, its modified shape delivers an increase turret capacity of up to 35 per cent more cups per stack. The cups still have the same rim diameter of the previous 12oz standard vending cup, so there is no need for adjustments to cup dropping units.

The extra cups per stack mean the 12oz Max cups are ideal for increasing opportunities for twin turret machines and maximising the potential of high volume sites.

Lids to fit the Venezia range, available at Bunzl Catering Supplies, are ideal for foaming beverages and incorporate plug fit rims to ensure a safer tighter seal whilst travelling with the drink.

Bender’s Venezia design vending cup range is made at their UK based BRC/IOP AA Grade factory using PEFC certified paper board to make sure that all of their cups are made using only sustainably managed forest resources.

These cups are also eligible for recycling if used in line with a designated collection and recycling service, such as Simply Cups, of which Bunzl Catering Supplies and Benders are founding members.
