Bartlett Mitchell, the independent caters established in 2000, has launched the Huskup eco-friendly reusable coffee cup that will support the community that produces Perkee coffee.

There are seven million takeaway cups that are disposed of every day. The Perkee Foundation Huskup cups are made from rice husk instead of plastic so they are biodegradable and take just 90 days to fully break down.

The Perkee coffee brand works with a female-run co-operative Soppexcca in Nicaragua. All profits from the sales of the Perkee Foundation Huskup cup will contribute to building a biscuit factory in Nicaragua that will give the Soppexcca women the opportunity for a year-round income.

Lin Dickens, marketing director at Bartlett Mitchell, said: “Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do, both at Bartlett Mitchell and at Perkee. That’s why we chose to partner with the Soppexca co-operative and with that came a responsibility to support the many individuals who work hard each season to provide us with our fantastic coffee beans.

“The Perkee Foundation Huskup cup not only supports these incredible women to earn an income all year, it helps us and our customers to cut our use of plastics with a truly sustainable alternative. It’s win-win.”
