A UK company designs innovative disposable coffee cup lids with a hatch that allows take-away coffee consumers to add milk or sugar to their drink and use the integrated stirrer to mix the ingredients. The company is looking for packaging distributors to sell its products in coffee shops in Germany, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.
A UK company has designed an innovative disposable lid for take-away coffee cups. The company director formerly ran three coffee shops and was the first to import the take-away coffee model in the UK. The aim is to make drinking coffee on-the-go easier, faster and to protect the environment. The product has a closable clip that enables customers to add other products, including milk, sugar or chocolate sprinkles. The consumers can then mix their drink to their own personal taste using the integrated stirrer. This works effectively without the consumer having to remove the lid and struggle to replace it. The lid can be customised for different occasions, in addition to the usual black and white colours used, a red lid could be sold on Valentine's day and a pink lid in support of breast cancer awareness. Other variations include blue and brown. Three different sizes are available to fulfil all customers' needs. The coffee lid is 100% recyclable as it consists entirely of ‘green' and sustainable materials. The company also aims to be environmentally-friendly by enabling customers who buy two cups of coffee to stack one cup on top of the other safely, without the need to buy wasteful cardboard carriers. The company is interested in wholesale trade with distributors such as packaging companies that are selling lids to coffee shops across Germany, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.
