Frugalpac has opened a new manufacturing facility in Wrexham, Wales, to increase production of its Frugal Cup range of fully-recyclable coffee cups.
The new 18,000 square foot manufacturing site has been opened following a seven-figure investment from the company, and the facility features three dedicated production lines which will produce Frugal Cups for coffee shops in the UK.
Frugal Cups are made from recycled paperboard and with no waterproofing chemicals, while the cup’s food-grade liner separates easily during the recycling process, offering an environmentally-friendly alternative to non-recyclable disposable cups. The cups can be easily recycled through standard recycling processes.
Frugal Cups will be produced in three sizes – 8oz, 12oz and 16oz – and in four styles, though the company also offers bespoke designs to companies through its in-house printing process.
Malcolm Waugh, CEO of Frugalpac, said: “We are delighted to open this factory which will mean we can now produce and supply the innovative Frugal Cup to coffee shops and cafes across the UK.
“With ever-increasing consumer demand for brands and retailers to do more to support an environmentally-sustainable economy, our aim is to be the number one replacement for all the coffee cups in the market today which are difficult to recycle and made from virgin paper board.”
