|Description of required eco-innovation / solution / technology / resource / knowledge / product / service||HEINEKEN Hungária Breweries Ltd is looking for an environmentally friendly solution regarding the composting of plastic cups made of PLA bioplastic|
|Background||HEINEKEN Hungária launched its plastic-free movement in May 2018. For a month, the company’s beers were offered in degradable plant-based so-called PLA cups at four restaurants. Due to favorable consumer feedback, HEINEKEN Hungária decided to continue its campaign. According to the experiences of the May campaign and the company’s recent research, 93% of Hungarians prefer plastic degradable packaging, and are willing to pay more for environmentally friendly solutions.|
Made from renewable resources such as corn, PLA plastic is an excellent alternative to standard plastic and styrofoam. They are fully compostable and typically break down within 30-45 days in a controlled composting environment. Freezer safe and allergen free, eco disposable cups are a functional way to help the environment without sacrificing quality.
