Food and beverage packaging specialist Huhtamaki will establish a greenfield paper cup manufacturing unit in Kiev, Ukraine. Huhtamaki has been present in Ukraine since 2002 and currently imports products mainly from its manufacturing units in Poland.

The new unit will manufacture a full range of paper cups for cold and hot drinks. Operations are expected to begin during 2018.

“Despite the recent political and economic turbulence, the foodservice market in Ukraine is growing and the country has an important role in many of our global key customers’ growth plans. In addition, Ukraine has an extensive transport infrastructure and is well placed to service the neighbouring countries,” said Eric Le Lay, executive vice president, Foodservice Europe-Asia-Oceania.
