UK-based Benders Papers Cups has manufactured a new range of coffee cups for Falkingham & Taylor (Vending), which provides vending services for food companies, pubs, clubs, café bars and other sectors.
Developed to mark the occasion of Hull being named UK City of Culture 2017, the new cups will feature a Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC UK) label, which shows that the materials used to manufacture them have been responsibly sourced.
Benders Papers Cups marketing manager Adrian Pratt said: “As a company, Benders is committed to the responsible sourcing of its raw materials.
“PEFC Chain of Custody certification provides full traceability for all paper cups manufactured from materials sourced in sustainably managed forests.
Benders Paper Cups currently manufactures paper cups at its factory in Wrexham, North Wales, UK.
So far, PEFC has certified more than 300 million hectares of forests under its internationally recognised sustainability benchmarks.
It has also supplied more than 18,000 chain of custody certified companies with responsibly sourced timber and wood products, including those used in producing fibre-based paper products.
