Benders Paper Cups has enjoyed a successful run of exhibitions in recent weeks with the leading paper cup company reporting a boost to forward orders and new business prospects following popular appearances at lunch! and the Dublin Coffee & Tea festival.
A favourite at both exhibitions has been the Embossed double walled hot cup which has struck a particular chord with the independent coffee shop market. Marketing manager for Benders, Adrian Pratt explains: “There is an increase in new businesses coming to market as the owners feels that the time is now right to set up shop.
“Having spoken to potential new customers at both exhibitions, there is a shared belief that the recovery in the economy is now sufficiently strong enough to launch a new business and many of these individuals consider their cup of choice to be our new Embossed double wall cup.
“These same new businesses are also interested in custom print as they want to hit the ground running, to make an impact and get their brands out there and known to potential customers. Whilst coffee consumption continues to rise, the ‘to go’ market in particular is still a competitive one and brands want to stand out.”
As one of the oldest companies in the Foodservice Packaging Association and one of a very few non-food factories to receive BRC/IOP A grade accreditation at the first audit, Benders is proud of its positioning as the UK’s single dedicated paper cup manufacturer.
With a full ‘Chain of Custody’ accreditation, all of its cups are manufactured in the UK using paper board from PEFC accredited sustainable managed forests. Each cup also complies with the stringent European Regulations for materials in contact with food.
