Metsä Board introduced a new paperboard cup design concept called ‘Lidloc’ at the Packaging Innovations Exhibition held in UK.  
According to Metsä Board, the Lidloc patented design is based upon an extension to a standard cup structure that folds and locks into an integrated lid. This innovative design completely removes the need for a separate plastic lid and will re-invent how paperboard cups are produced, consumed and recycled. The lid also contains an integrated ‘sip’ mechanism for hot beverages.
“We have designed this to be a one-piece construction that removes the need for a separate plastic lid. It is easy to fold and assemble with a secure lid-locking design. The integrated lid is spill proof and offers extra branding power as it can be printed as one piece with the rest of the cup. The lid also contains an integrated ‘sip’ mechanism for hot beverages as well as being ideal for cold drinks with a straw,” Drouet explained.
All Metsä Board’s paperboards are made from a renewable resource – fresh fibers of known origin said the manufacturer.
