Following the opening of our new 18,000 square foot manufacturing site in Wrexham, we’re delighted to announced the appointment of Rebecca Turner as our new Head of Sales & Marketing. She has been appointed to help support Frugalpac’s expansion and drive the sales of the Frugal Cup to coffee shops across the UK, as a sustainable alternative to hard-to-recycle disposable cups.

Previously working as European Marketing Manager at Graphic Packaging International, Rebecca says her 25 years of experience in sales, marketing and food service packaging have ‘prepared her for this role’, which she hopes to make her own by directly engaging with decision makers to demonstrate the business benefits of stocking the Frugal Cup.

Rebecca commented:

“After many years of working in the disposable cup industry, I am delighted to start working with Frugalpac, a company with principles and integrity. I’m excited to start marketing the Frugal Cup as a truly sustainable alternative to disposable cups; there are a lot of manufacturers out there greenwashing and making unsubstantiated claims about their products, so it is refreshing to find a company whose manufacturing process is based in the UK, and whose ethos is entirely focused on using recycled paper and easy recycling of their products.”

“This is a fantastic opportunity to develop my career with an innovative brand that I truly believe in, and it’s great to join at such an exciting time for the company. I am keen to speak to any coffee shop looking to #getFrugal!”

Malcolm Waugh, CEO of Frugalpac, added:

“We’re proud of our unique vision as a company, and it’s great to attract someone of Rebecca’s calibre to join us for what truly is the beginning of the recycled coffee cup revolution. We remain committed to developing products which allow us tap into the growth in demand for outlets to do more to support an environmentally-sustainable economy and creating new, innovative and recyclable packaging like the Frugal Cup.”
