While the Environmental Audit Committee (EAC) has appeared to rule out a ‘latte levy’ for the time being, Terry Fox, chief executive of Cup Print, said the government is expecting operators to embrace the opportunity to change by switching to sustainable cup options.

He also pointed out that the government’s response to EAC Report on paper cups specifically referenced a recyclable cup. It read: “We understand that a cup is being designed with a minimal plastic content, which could be reprocessed through a regular paper mill.”

An industry insider confirmed to Packaging News this was reference to California-based Smart Planet Technology’s reCUP – which is used by Cup Print.
