UK-based packaging specialist 4 Aces has launched its new flip-top cup dispenser for the growing tabletop and vending market.
The white dispenser is designed to address the mess and hygiene issues when cups are left loose and scattered around the machines.
The new 4 Aces dispenser keeps cups tidy, dispensing them one by one, without the danger of cross-contamination.
Developed on the basis of 4 Aces’s existing water cooler offerings, the system is also capable of dispensing cups in various sizes and vending hot beverages.
The dispenser is currently available in a box of 12, complete with screws and brackets.
4 Aces managing director Chris Penn said: “Part of our remit, at 4 Aces, is to plug any gaps in the market and to effectively deliver what the customer needs.
“We recognised that, when it comes to table top vending, cups aren’t always dispensed of properly; they’re often left scattered near the machines and can be discarded without having been used for their intended purpose - which means that there are further costs incurred to replace those cups and unnecessary waste issues involved for the operator too.
“The white fliptop cup dispenser acknowledges and answers all those problems instantaneously. It’s fast and efficient, with a strong, simple mechanism that eliminates multiple cup dropouts, and it can be attached to any surface or wall for ease of use.”
According to 4 Aces, the dispenser also offers environmental benefits by controlling a number of cups dispensed and reducing waste.
