Its unmistakable design and iconic gokart feeling are practically the only traditions it won’t break with. For 2019, the brand is once again taking a leap forward with the introduction of the MINI Electric, set for worldwide market launch in March 2020.

Having worked closely with the composting industry since our humble beginnings in 2009 we are delighted to announce our pearl white and chestnut brown cups as well as our soup containers have been one of the first set of products to pass the new Cré compostable scheme, designed to give Irish users confidence that a product is certified compostable and suitable for disposal in their food waste bin.
