Leading paper cup company, Benders Paper Cups has consolidated its environmental position in the market with Chain of Custody accreditations under both Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) and Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC).

These well-known and respected certifications guarantee that all paperboard used to make Benders cups comes from sustainable managed forestry. Independently verified, the certifications rubberstamp this across all Benders’ cups ranges, which will also be endorsed with the strapline ‘Made In The UK’.

In future, all Benders cups will officially be recognised as meeting the requirement set out by either PEFC or FSC and, as the manufacturing process of the Benders factory facility has been Chain of Custody certified, that means that the origin of the cup board is fully traceable.

Marketing manager for Benders, Adrian Pratt, commented: “Not only is the certification further endorsement of the quality and traceability of our products, it also speaks loudly and clearly about the importance we continue to place on all environmental concerns.’’

Benders’ paper cup selection features cups for a wide range of differing applications, including the recently introduced Elementi range for customers looking for a compostable alternative to the standard choices.
