Berry’s ongoing innovation in its manufacturing processes has enabled the company to manufacture the mono-material cups, making their recycling a real possibility in regions where there is the appropriate recycling infrastructure in place for PP.
“This is a huge step forward from the former polystyrene cups, a material that is not considered commonly recyclable due to a lack of recycling collection and infrastructure,” commented Nigel Cannon, UK Sales Manager, Berry's Beverage Systems. “In addition, the new PP cups are top quality and are produced with a minimum amount of material to ensure their low weight.”
The PP vending cups can be used for both cold and hot drinks. A further advantage is their safety brim fill gap, which means there is a little extra space at the top of the cup. This gap allows for contraction when held, thereby preventing risk of the drink overflowing – a big plus, especially when people enjoy hot drinks or soups.
The vending cup range is designed to fit any vending machine model.
