Biopac art series cup

Biopac UK, a supplier of environmentally responsible foodservice disposables, has released a range of commercially compostable art series cups featuring designs from 12 UK artists.

The new and products have been made possible by joining forces with Australian based sustainable packaging company BioPak. This partnership will see Biopac integrate with BioPak to bring to the UK the best of both companies.

The art series has been successful across Australia and New Zealand, and for the UK release, they will be featuring designs by local UK artists.

The cups are made from sustainably-sourced paper lined with Ingeo bioplastic – which is made from plants, not plastic. Biopac says choosing bioplastic over plastic reduces carbon emissions by 75%. These paper hot cups can be commercially composted and are designed to be part of the circular economy.

Biopac UK’s technical director, Mark Brigden, commented: “These art series cups are just the beginning of a string of compostable packaging innovations we have in store for businesses and consumers who, like us, want to preserve and protect the environment for current and future generations.”

The UK Art Series is available in 4oz, 8oz, 12oz and 16oz single wall hot cups. There are a mix of three different artists per size.
