EVENT Cup Solutions (ECS), a division of Event Hire UK, has announced the launch of a new range of reusable cups and food-to-go containers.
Described as an ‘industry first’, the ECS hire range includes reusable coffee cups, beer, wine and champagne cups, which are all manufactured in the UK, and a range of food trays and boxes, as well as pasta pots.
ECS said all the reusable cups and food-to-go packaging can be washed more than 500 times and are recyclable at their end of life.
Director John Reeves said, “Even though the hospitality and events sector is currently braced in lockdown we believe that, once the restrictions are lifted and it becomes safe to operate once again, the demand for more sustainable and hygienic food and beverage packaging solutions will be even greater.
“Our product range also offers hospitality providers an opportunity to turn a cost into a brand new revenue stream. We know that consumers are willing to accept a small levy on reusable drinks cups and food-to-go boxes knowing that these products will be washed and used many times over, thereby reducing the use of single-use products. For food service and hospitality businesses, this levy will completely offset the cost of the service, making it both environmentally and economically compelling.”
