Huhtamaki to support BEV-E Awards 2009

Packaging manufacturer Huhtamaki is showing its support to this year’s BEV-E Awards by sponsoring the ‘Coffee Cart/Mobile’ sector.

“The Coffee Cart/Mobile category is highly competitive and comprises a range of sites; from cafes, bistros and restaurants, to places of work, mobile outlets, pubs and hotels. As a company, Huhtamaki work hard to develop products which meet the demands of these such establishments, which, with the increasingly high quality beverage service they offer, means it is no surprise that this market has seen some of the fastest growth in the beverage market over the last few years,” John Young, General Manager Foodservice, Huhtamaki.

The need for outlets to offer a premium take away offering, has led Huhtamaki to manufacture an extensive range of paper products, which, thanks to their properties, make customisation and therefore branding easier. This enhanced presentation allows for a more gourmet offering, which ultimately boosts profit.

Huhtamaki will provide the winner of the Coffee Cart/Mobile category with a trip to its main paper cup factory in the UK. Located in Gosport, the visit will allow the winner to see Huhtamaki’s range of foodservice disposables, as well as give an insight into the development of the products manufactured by the Finnish company.

Launched by the BSA in 2004, the BEV-E Awards recognise the best hot and cold, and non-alcoholic beverage retailing sites in England, Scotland and Wales, and help raise the quality of drinks served and the service provided.
