    The Vio® Bio

    Vio was born in 2011, when WinCup® partnered with our sister company StyroChem® to develop the world’s first biodegradable* foam cup. This breakthrough product was then put through a rigorous, four-year-long testing regimen at an ASTM-accredited facility. Finally, we designed an entire family of Vio products that marry the traditional benefits of foam disposables (from lower cost to superior performance) with a new end-of-life story that makes everyone happy in the end.

    Now available from most major foodservice distributors across the U.S.

    Better From The Get-Go

    From the moment they’re made, Vio foam cups go easier on the environment than comparable paper cups. Here’s how an average foam cup compares to the average polyethylene-coated paperboard cup with a corrugated sleeve.

    • 50% less energy consumed to manufacture/transport*
    • 30% less solid waste (by weight) generated*
    • 20-30% less water used to manufacture**
