• PEFC certified coffee cups to commemorate Hull City of Culture 2017

        • The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC UK) has announced that UK paper cup manufacturer, Benders Papers Cups, has produced coffee cups which will carry the PEFC certification label for its client Falkingham & Taylor (Vending) Ltd. They have been manufactured to mark the occasion of Hull becoming UK City of Culture for 2017.

          The special City of Culture 2017 coffee cups will carry PEFC’s ‘two trees’ label, providing coffee lovers with the assurance that the materials used in the manufacture of the commemorative certified cups have been both responsibly and sustainably sourced. Hull, known for being the home of the poet Philip Larkin, the Ferens Gallery and the Hull Truck Theatre Company has been named the UK City of Culture for 2017.

          Adrian Pratt, Benders’ Marketing Manager said, “Benders is committed to sustainable 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 is dedicated to the manufacturer of paper hot cups. All its cups are made in the UK at its BRC/IOP AA Grade factory in Wrexham, North Wales, and supplied across the UK and Europe to the Workplace and On the Go sectors covering vending, specialty coffee, QSR and ‘To-Go’ markets.

          PEFC has certified more than 300 million hectares of forests to PEFC’s internationally recognised Sustainability Benchmarks, supplying more than 18,000 Chain of Custody certified companies with responsibly sourced timber and wood products, such as those used in producing fibre-based paper products such as packaging. Today, more and more companies from SMEs to global brands are keen to demonstrate that the fibre they use in their packaging materials comes from a certified sustainable source. This is important as consumers are increasingly conscious of how their purchasing decisions impact on the world’s natural resources.
