Kraft Heinz has announced that Kraft Mac & Cheese is developing and testing the brand’s first-ever recyclable fibre-based microwavable cup.

Upon completion of the testing stage, the brand plans to launch a new Kraft Mac & Cheese Shapes variety later this year using the new cup and design.

Currently being trialled, the new microwave-safe cup is fibre- rather than plastic-based to be both recyclable and compostable in industrial composting facilities. In addition, the cup features new direct print technology, removing the need for a plastic label.
