M&S to serve paper fibre takeaway coffee cups in all its Cafes


Marks & Spencers Coffee Cups

Marks & Spencer has announced that it will be rolling out its paper fibre takeaway coffee cup to all M&S Cafes in April 2024.

Following the launch in 20 stores last year, from next month M&S said its paper fibre takeaway coffee cup, which it said is 100% recyclable in household and on-the-go recycling, will be available in over 300 M&S stores across the UK, including M&S Cafés, vended coffee points and Marketplaces within its Foodhalls.

The supermarket said the change is expected to remove over 20 million units of plastic from M&S’ Food business every year. Last year, M&S said it met its target to remove 75 million units of plastic in 2023/24.

The expansion follows the introduction of new recyclable paper packaging across the range of sandwiches and toasties available in all M&S Cafes earlier this year, which the supermarket said removed 4.5 million units of plastic.

Our goal is to offer customers the most sustainable cup of coffee on the high street.

Alicia Thompson, Director of Hospitality at M&S Food: “Our goal is to offer customers the most sustainable cup of coffee on the high street. A takeaway coffee they can feel good about drinking because it comes in fully recyclable cups uses delicious 100% Fairtrade coffee beans and is made with RSPCA Assured fresh milk.

“Our customers care strongly about reducing plastic and they’ve supported our move to paper fibre cups. With no impact to the taste or temperature of their hot drink – and now 100% recyclable – this is one of the ways we’re supporting our customers to make small changes in their everyday lives, which have a big impact on the environment.”
