How to Store Paper Cups and Plates?

As fast food consumption has become an integral part of global social culture, the demand for takeaway catering containers has also increased. For coffee shop and restaurant owners, takeaway containers provide an additional and convenient source of income while serving as a form of marketing—especially when they are custom-printed with branding.

how to store paper cups


As paper or plastic containers come into contact with food and beverage, we should pay more attention to dustproof and moisture-proof when storing. Let’s take the ordinary disposable paper coffee cups as an example: once the bulk of paper cups have been opened, the left should be sealed in time for storage, and should be stored in a ventilated, dry place that is not susceptible to moisture, and should be used as soon as possible within the validity period.

Besides, we should be careful on choosing paper cups before we use them, not only about the quantities or prices but also the usage and details. 

Firstly, check whether the packaging and sealing are complete and whether the font printing is clear. Try not to buy paper cups with damaged packaging seals and blurred printing.

Then you should check the inner and outer surfaces of the paper cup and the bottom of the cup to see if they are clean, whether there are stains, deformation, or mildew, and whether the thickness is uniform. The printed pattern of a paper cup should be uniform in color, clear in outline, and without obvious color spots.

The third thing is to check whether there is any odor, especially the smell of ink or mold. If there is an odor, please do not buy and use it.

The last point is to make sure the paper cup has a fluorescent reaction under the irradiation of ultraviolet light. 


Biobased and Customized Packaging

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.
