Single wall cups and lids see sales spike

A catering and leisure disposables supplier has reported a spike in sales of its 12oz and 16oz, single wall, paper cups as summer continues to take hold. The cups, with accompanying flat, straw slot lids, are on constant order from customers including events organisers, theme parks and those catering for outdoor activities.

Managing director of Herald, Yogesh Patel has a clear idea why these cups are so popular: “They are the perfect vessel for sodas and, as a single wall, paper cup, they are both eco-friendly and cost-effective.

“Most parks and events providers are onto them as it’s all about keeping costs down rather than what the product looks like this year. When operators are selling to a captive audience, who are already at the destination, they don’t feel the same need to have to brand these items and can rest their focus on the bottom line.

“If a cup can be as secure and useable with a single wall – which good quality ones most certainly can when it comes to cold drinks like juices and sodas – then cost-saving wins every time.”
