Libbey introduces premium plastic drinkware
Libbey’s new Infinium collection mimics clarity of glass with industry- leading durability
Bring a more upscale, trendy vibe to beverage service in outdoor and casual environments with the new Infinium™ collection of premium plastic drinkware from Libbey® Foodservice. Made of 100 percent BPA-free Tritan™ copolyester and crafted for the demands of use in foodservice, Infinium mimics the clarity of glass, is virtually unbreakable and retains its beauty longer than other plastic substrates.
“Some venues, particularly outdoor settings, like to use plastic for their beverage service,” said Susan J. Dountas, director of foodservice marketing for Libbey Inc. “Libbey partnered with a global expert in the innovative application of an unsurpassed, high-performing material to create a completely new drinkware line.”
Infinium provides the kind of replacement-reducing performance acrylic, SAN and polycarbonate cannot match, including temperature resilience, remarkable durability and industry-leading resistance to virtually all stains, odors and tainting of beverage flavours.
“With the range of visually stunning designs, bartenders and mixologists can leverage the appeal of the 18-piece Infinium collection across their drink menu,” Dountas added.
