Clare-based Cup Print has entered into a deal with Frugalpac to install a new packaging machine to produce the UK company’s paper coffee cup.

Frugalpac, whose clients include Starbucks, will use Cup Print’s machine to meet increasingly high demand for its recyclable cups.

Cup Print, based in Ennis, already produces 150 million cups a year for clients such as Mars, Kraft and Bunzl. The company is excited to partner with Frugalpac on bringing this product to market.

Terry Fox, MD at Cup Print, says: “We’re thrilled that Cup Print has been chosen to mass produce the first Frugalpac. Cup Print is the world’s fastest paper cup manufacturer and produces single wall and double wall cups.

“We already supply independent cafés and marketing companies all over Europe and we look forward to being able to offer the Frugalpac cup to them, following the forthcoming tests and trials with several potential customers. The interest and excitement we’ve seen for this innovative and easier-to-recycle coffee cup has been remarkable and we look forward to playing our part in taking it to market.”

Frugalpac hopes that their new paper coffee cup could solve the problem that only 1 in 400 cups are currently recycled, with most ending up in landfill.

Its founder, Martin Myerscough, comments: “It’s a big step for Frugalpac and a signal of our confidence not only in the cup but also in the market for it. We have received interest from around the world for the Frugalpac, including from Starbucks. Our new facility at Cup Print will allow us to start to meet this demand.

“Ultimately we will build even larger Frugalpac machines for cup producers by licensing the technology to them. But we’re really pleased that Cup Print is our first partner.”
