4 Aces has launched a 9oz vending version of its compostable, PLA hot cup, adding to the 7oz, 8 oz and 12 oz vending cups already available in the leading disposable cup supplier’s environmentally-friendly PLANET range.
Created to fill a gap in the vending market, the 4 Aces’ 9oz cup carries the internationally recognised seedling logo and complies to EU certification for compostable packaging, like the other cups in the range. This means that it will disintegrate in the correct industrial facilities for disposal within 12 weeks.
David Blake, sales director of 4 Aces, is pleased to offer a PLA hot cup of this size to the vending industry: “Producing a 9 oz version of this cup means that we are providing our loyal customers with a degree of flexibility when it comes to choice and, hopefully, attracting new business from those who will struggle to find a good supplier who can provide any type of similar quality, eco-friendly cup at this size.
“There’s an over-whelming public interest in green disposable products at the moment and all of our customers are keen to be led by the consumer, to deliver the most ethical option and do their bit for the environment.”
The call for a greater selection of eco-friendly products is not just a vending issue. Sales of 4 Aces’ selection of biodegradable, paper water cones and its PLA cold cup range are on the rise and the company is also finding that demand for its environmental products has grown across all sectors and in most locations.
PLA is made from plant-based materials; PLA cups therefore contain natural resources that can constantly be renewed, which means that it’s likely that cups made from this substance are a most viable alternative going forward and will continue to grow as a popular choice.
4 Aces is continually developing products to address its customers’ concerns and the changing demands that are being driven by their customers. Since its launch in 2001, the company has ensured that its product offering is amongst the widest and most creative, and that its customer service ranks at the highest level, thus guaranteeing its status as the UK’s fastest growing provider of packaging products to the beverage and foodservice sectors.
