Lavazza Professional has advanced with its dedication to a dramatic reduction in plastic cup use by expanding the range of KLIX drinks available in its KLIX Eco Cup.
The cup was first introduced in February 2020, proclaimed a sustainable option for hot beverages, and the first of its type in the vending industry. The cup is made of a patented water-based dispersion barrier board, which is PEFC certified and sourced from sustainably managed forests.
The extension of the KLIX Eco Cup range is a further demonstration of Lavazza Professional’s commitment to helping its customers to achieve their objectives. Customers are increasingly demanding that the products they purchase throughout their businesses are recyclable, plastic-free, and sustainable, and the breakroom is a significant focus for the company.
Lavazza believes its KLIX Eco Cup is a pioneering breakthrough, bringing a new and sustainable option to the vending business, as currently only one in 400 cups are recycled. Lavazza stated that its new cup could lead the industry a step closer to improving the statistic by applying pioneering technology to drastically reduce the amount of PE plastic used in paper cups and, in so doing, take a significant step towards increasing cup recycling.
Customers can purchase Lavazza Professional’s entire coffee range – Nescafe Gold Blend, Nescafe Original, and Kenco – plus Lipton Lemon Tea in a KLIX Eco Cup. Additionally, the cup’s deployment is expanding to embrace the company’s cold drinks: a choice of flavoured water drinks, comprised of Citrus Fruits, Orange & Peach and Summer Fruits, are also now available in the KLIX Eco Cup.
