Cork leading the way in the organic recycling arena
Cork is leading the way in the organic recycling arena. That's according to the Cork based company that will be supplying Supervalu and Centra with compostable cups and lids for its takeaway coffee brand, Frank and Honest.
The new sustainable initiative was announced this week by the retail group and has received a broad welcome.
The move is already having knock effects here in Munster where up to 20 new jobs will be coming on stream at Down2Earth Materials in Cork and CupPrint Materials in Co. Clare.
