Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Qualitasse Coffee Roasters recently introduced its range of compostable & biodegradable double wall paper cups which are manufactured from paperboard in the U.K. Featuring renewable biopolymer that is biodegradable, this new product has an effective PLA lining that is non-plastic. Qualitasse said that they hope this will also be a good thing for their home country's economy (U.K.).

The company said that they are motivated by plastic becoming a bigger and bigger problem, higher and higher profile on news channels, and with paper cups being at the top of another "hit list", now is an "excellent time" to make the switch to more advanced compostable technologies in production.

The product has been launched with a suitably simple design, meaning any business and brand can adopt them as "their" cup.

More information can be found in the full product feature description by Compleo from Oct. 5, 2018 available online.
