Hebcooler is the leading manufacturer of a wide range of expanded polystyrene (EPS) cup and tub related products. Hebcooler has grown from humble roots in 1960 to a household brand with a national footprint.

Since 1990, Hebcooler has steadily built up a reputation as the market leader in the manufacture and distribution of EPS drinking cups and tubs. This reputation has been specifically built upon three major factors; namely, high quality and reliability of product, price competitiveness, and extensive national reach through its network of packaging distributors throughout South Africa.

Hebcooler was purchased by a Isowall Group company, Isocornice Moulding (Pty) Ltd and is trading as Hebcooler and from May 2012 it will be based at its new world-class production facility in Pretoria, Gauteng, with various distribution warehouses.

Advantages of EPS Cups and Tubs

Despite opposition from a variety of alternative drinking cups and food tubs such as paper cups and plastic ware, EPS cups and tubs have stood the test of time. This may be largely attributed to the following:

  • Thermo-insulating: Keeps both hot and cold drinks at optimum serving temperature for much longer than any other medium. No more burned hands and ‘double-cupping’!
  • Energy efficient: In times of ongoing energy crises, the EPS cup requires 17 – 20 times LESS electricity in the production process. Indeed, the production of the paper cup uses 10 times the amount of steam and produces 300 times the volume of waste water, which contains 40 times more contaminants than that of EPS cups.
  • Low Cost: Due to the fact that EPS requires significantly less raw material input, less labour and production costs, makes these cups and tubs highly cost-efficient.
  • Hygiene: The application of steam in the production process effectively sterilizes the product as well as making the EPS cup highly resistant to fats, salts, acid, fungi and other micro-organisms.
  • Environmental: EPS cups are fully recyclable with no CFC’s, which badly damage the atmosphere, used in the production of EPS.

In order to meet the growing demand for ‘take-out’ eating, Hebcooler has recently completed major expansion plans for its Cup and Tub Division, and can now produce the entire range of EPS cups and tubs:
