Huhtamaki Secures 'Kafevend' Disposable Cup Deal


Gosport-based global packaging and disposables manufacturer, Huhtamaki, has successfully won the Kafevend contract to supply disposable paper cups for its FLAVIA® hot drinks vending machines.

The company was keen to deliver a high quality cup to their customers, displaying the Kafevend branding - a brand synonymous with quality vending machines and unbeatable service.

Jane Rowe, Commercial Marketing Director at Kafevend explains:
"With Kafevend at the forefront of the UK vending market and with a reputation for the reliability of our vending machines and quality of our service, we were keen to ensure that the Kafevend brand was reinforced with our customers and visible to their customers or visitors at their premises who may want to replicate the proposition within their own businesses. Huhtamaki offered a range of cups that met the same high quality standards that we expect from all our suppliers and their comprehensive work in the vending market gave us the utmost confidence in their understanding of our requirements and ability to meet both Kafevend's and our customers' needs."

Huhtamaki is able to design disposable paper vending cups in a variety of different custom prints, incorporating logos, corporate colours and even details of competitions.
