Huhtamaki Future SmartTM - Our first 100% renewable paper cup

Introducing Huhtamaki Future SmartTM paper cup with renewable bio-based coating

Huhtamaki introduces its first 100% renewable paper cup solution for hot and cold beverages, ice cream and takeout food.

The world is changing for the better. New materials and technologies lead to new solutions that significantly reduce dependence on fossil oil-based materials and offer more consumer choice and chance to enhance the brand experience.

To meet and exceed the demands of the new age, Huhtamaki is once again pioneering a new packaging solution. Future SmartTM is 100% renewable paper cup made entirely from plant based materials. The new cup uses paperboard from PEFC certified sustainably managed forests and a newly developed plant-based polyethylene as a moisture barrier coating.

"Huhtamaki Future SmartTM paper cup solution is a giant leap forward in substituting fossil oil based plastics in packaging with a fully renewable and cost economical next generation plant-based material", says Richard Skidmore, Vice President of Innovation at Huhtamaki Foodservice Europe-Asia-Oceania business segment.

Fully renewable Future SmartTM solution is the perfect business reason to renew your beverage and food packaging. Join us in pioneering and innovating a new sustainable future.
