Huhtamäki brings future to paper cups
The Finnish specialist in packaging for food and drink created a paper cup that is made entirely from plant-based materials from sustainably managed forests.
The paper cup, known as Future SmartTM, has a newly developed plant-based polyethylene as a moisture barrier coating. The paperboard comes from PEFC certified forests.
The cup suits both hot and cold beverages, ice cream and takeout food.
According to a release, new materials and technologies lead to new solutions that can remarkably reduce our dependence on fossil oil-based materials, at the same time and offer more consumer choice and chance to enhance the brand experience.
Huhtamäki has a network of 73 manufacturing units and 23 sales offices in 34 countries.
