Parkland Corporation launched its Bistro On the Run initiative across Canada with sustainable foodservice packaging in mind. It invested in freshly-ground bean-to-cup machines to eliminate the waste of thermos-held coffee being dumped every two hours, while ensuring its customers enjoy fresh hot coffee every time. Its double-walled coffee cups—made from bamboo, a renewable resource—mean there’s no need for a sleeve or an extra cup. Parkland is currently testing a water-based liner, slated for 2023 implementation, which will make its Bistro cups 100% compostable.

The company’s Chill Out recyclable cups, launched in 2022 and made from RPET material, further lower Parkland’s carbon footprint.

“Parkland’s Bistro coffee initiative is a building block for future foodservice initiatives at our retail locations,” says foodservice category manager Jackie Pink.“Being sustainable was a critical factor. We’re first to market with bamboo cups, as well as RPET recycled plastic and upcoming compostable packaging, with the hope that we set a precedent for the industry. We want to make sure to do our part wherever we can to build a sustainable future for generations to come.”
