The holder requires minimal storage space. Compared to pulp trays, it fills fewer black sacks, saving on the hassles of disposal.

Handle-it can also be printed for use as a loyalty card to encourage re-use of the cup holder. It can be folded up small enough to keep in a bag or pocket until it is next required after use.

It will be distributed by Tri-Star Packaging in the UK.

Tri-Star managing director Kevin Curran said that Handle-it provides a solution to the age-old problem of never having enough hands free to carry everything one needs to.

"You can easily carry four cups in one hand with Handle-it," Curran added.

Handle-it inventor Alison Bateman said: "Kevin and his team are renowned in the packaging industry for their ability to spot a winning innovation, so appointing them as preferred distribution partner in the UK was an easy decision to make."
