Dixie Ultra® Insulair™ Hot Cup
GP PRO’S DIXIE® FOODSERVICE has launched the Dixie Ultra® Insulair™ Hot Cup, a heat-activated disposable beverage cup that uses an internal air pocket rather than an external sleeve to help keep beverages hot and hands cool. “We are incredibly proud of the innovation and industry insight that went into designing the Dixie Ultra Insulair Hot Cup, and we are confident that it will quickly become the go-to cup for coffee-on-the-go,” said Alec Frisch, GP PRO vice president for foodservice. “For operators, the Insulair Hot Cup can help them improve efficiency, reduce costs, and deliver a better, more branded customer experience.” The Insulair Hot Cup is a single-wall paper cup with an interior lining made of a low-density polyethylene film. When a hot liquid is poured into the cup, a thin, heat-activated air pocket expands within the cup’s lining, replacing the need for an external sleeve. The air pocket adjusts to the temperature of the beverage, meaning the hotter the liquid, the greater the air pocket. The Insulair Hot Cup is available in 12-, 16-, and 20-ounce sizes, with actual ounces dependent on the heat of the liquid and the size of the air pocket.
