By Press Release

disposable foamDisposable foam cups and food containers have always offered food and beverage service operators several important advantages. They’re more economical. They keep food and drink at just the right temp, longer. And since they’re so lightweight, they are easier to store and work with too. No doubt all good things. But it gets better. Now you’ve lived to see the day when Vio happily adds an unexpected benefit. One that’s ever so appealing to your customers’ sensibilities.
