Merlo Coffee is set to update its iconic blue takeaway cup featuring artwork from local artists.
Earlier in the year, Merlo Coffee Roasters put a call out to creatives nationally, inviting artists and designers to submit entries into its takeaway cup competition.
After receiving hundreds of entries and much deliberation among the judging panel, Merlo will soon launch a new designer range of both Merlo branded, and unbranded, takeaway cups for retail stores, as well as its wholesale network.
Merlo has worked closely with BioPak to ensure the new creative approach also offers improved environmental benefits.
The new Aqueous takeaway cups are manufactured using a unique water- based dispersion coating that significantly reduces the amount of material needed.
Food safe, odourless and leak proof, the cups are certified to AS5810 home compostable standards, meaning they can be disposed in your backyard compost bin.
