Huhtamaki New Compostable Double Wall Cup

Monday July 22, 2019

Uses 25% less material than most other smooth walled double and triple walled cups.

Our partner supplier, Huhtamaki, has launched its new compostable Bioware Impresso Double Walled Hot Cup.  Adding to Huhtamaki’s existing Bioware compostable range, this new ‘feel good’ cup in a mixed sleeve of stunning white and green designs utilises the unique Impresso bubble emboss which provides enhanced insulation and a tactile touch for the holder.

The new cup is manufactured in the UK, which is clearly good for the environment and for the economy. It utilises sustainable 100% PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) paperboard with a plant based PLA coating on the inside.   As with all of Huhtamaki’s Impresso’s double wall cups, the innovative design means that the cup uses up to 25% less material than most other smooth walled double and triple wall cups on the market – a game changer for environmentally conscious businesses wanting to reduce the weight of their packaging without compromising on performance.

Becci Eplett, Marketing Manager at Huhtamaki UK explains the cups’ unique benefits.

“We are experts in both cup design and manufacture, and our latest innovation, ‘feel good’ adds a compostable double wall cup to the range with our unique Impresso outer wrap that feels good to hold and provides enhanced insulation.  The ‘feel good’ compostable Impresso has EN13432 certification which means that it is compostable in the UK at approved composting facilities.”

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.”
