Meanwhile, more consumers have become aware of the damage caused by disposable plastic products. According to estimates, approximately 2.5 billion takeaway cups are disposed of annually in the UK alone, and most of them go to landfills. All these factors drive sellers and shop owners to turn to using compostable paper containers like biodegradable cups and paper plates. They are eco-friendly but easy to be impacted by temperature and moisture, so how do we store them in a proper way?
The manufacturer will check the cup quality before they are shipped, usually, they are stacked around 50 on top of each other and then wrapped into the carton and transported to the destination.
The way the compostable cups are stored may have changed during their lifespan. It’s an ideal situation to avoiding stacked one by one as the accumulated weight may cause the cups to bend or deform. You can store them on the cartons you received from your manufacturer for better inventory management, and make them stay in a clean, cool environment that is under room temperature to make sure that they won’t be affected by the weather.
In your own coffee shop, cups used on barista bars can place face down on a clean, dry surface to prevent dust from accumulating inside the cup before use. For the other cups, you can store them under the counter, wrapped in plastic provided by your manufacturer, it will help to protect the cup from any accidental spills or organic coffee waste.
