The FairCup is the only one certified for vending machines.

In contrast to many deposit cup suppliers in the reusable sector, we are certified. Because only those who can show a certificate are really suitable for „free space“ machines. We have not only had such a certificate for Tomra Systems machines since April 2018. The first machines have already been set up at nodes in Göttingen and logistics for emptying the machines have been set up. All of this can be controlled from our database and ADMIN and customer app with navigation.

Our partner Tomra Systems has 30,000 locations nationwide, mainly in supermarkets, which can be quickly added to the FairCup network after certification.

„A big step for humanity“ – Jürgen Trittin

Since 2018, our cups have been used as a replacement for packaging in supermarkets and returned via the deposit bottle machine.
