Continental Cup Launches GC120 – A New Suite of Plastic-Free, Recyclable & Compostable Cups Developed utilizing Asia Pulp & Paper’s Sustainable FooPak Bio Natura Paperboard at the National Restaurant Association Show

Anaheim, CA, 18, April 2024 – Continental Cup Company today announced the launch of the “Game Changer 120” (GC120), which is a new line-up of sustainable cups for cold and alcoholic beverages for the QSR, takeaway and quick-serve sectors. Using APP Group’s (APP) Foopak Bio Natura plastic-free base paper, the cups are PFAS-free, curb-side recyclable, and both home and industrial compostable.

To showcase the new product line-up, the full suite of GC120 cups will be on display at the National Restaurant Association (NRA) Show at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois from 18 to 21 May, at the Continental Cup Booth #9554. To complement the sustainability of the GC120 cups, APP’s full suite of sustainable trays, bowls, hot and cold cups and the newest addition of their plastic-free lids will also be on display at the booth.

“As the latest example of Continental Cup’s commitment to innovation, GC120 is our latest plastic-free offering which aims to meet the needs of our consumers and cater to the growing demand for sustainable products,” said Rich Reutti VP Sales & Marketing of Continental Cup.

Through Charta Global, the exclusive U.S. & Latin America sales channel for APP, Continental Cup converts the award-winning Foopak Bio Natura paperboard as the base paper of its GC120 cups. Foopak Bio Natura’s paperboard utilizes innovative and revolutionary aqua-dispersion technology to replace harmful petroleum-based plastic coatings that are not sustainable for the planet and humans. The paperboard is FDA-compliant as well as both REACH and BfR certified for direct food contact.

“We are thrilled to partner with Continental Cup and help them bring the GC120 line to the market,” said Anthony Atamimi, Sales Director, Charta Global. “Their size and capabilities are a true asset, providing the flexibility needed to support a complete portfolio of cup solutions for a dynamic marketplace. We look forward to continuing to grow our relationship, and further integrating our Foopak Bio Natura product as they expand their line-up of sustainable paper cup solutions.
