Burger King Finland trials bio-based reusable cups

Sustainability

In a new pilot project, two Burger King restaurants in Finland are trialing 100% bio-based reusable cups from Sulapac.

The pilot, initiated by Finnish restaurant and catering company Restel, includes select Burger King and Rax restaurants operated by Restel in Finland. This initiative is in collaboration with Sulapac, an award-winning material innovation company. By adopting Sulapac’s reusable cups, the restaurants aim to reduce waste, lower CO2 emissions, and avoid harmful microplastic pollution.

Sulapac’s Solid material, developed specifically for reusable tableware, is 100% bio-based and produced without hazardous chemicals. Additionally, Sulapac Solid does not leave behind permanent microplastic, which can pose significant risks to ecosystems and human health.

During the two-month pilot, customers at the participating restaurants receive a reusable cup from the cashier and return it to a designated collection tray after use. The cups can be washed up to 200 times. At the end of their lifecycle, Sulapac will handle the recycling of the cups.

The chemical recycling process for Sulapac and other bio-based biodegradable materials is said to be highly efficient, both in terms of energy consumption and yield, while maintaining food contact quality.
