New reusable glass system for to-go food and drinks in Ulm and Neu-Ulm

0 comments


Gastronomy companies from Ulm and Neu-Ulm are introducing a new reusable system made of glass for dishes and drinks to take away or for delivery. The advantages of the new Relevo system are that the costs for the companies are calculated according to the number of fillings, i.e. “pay per use” and there are no acquisition costs. The containers can be reused up to 2,000 times, are 100 percent recyclable and are leak-proof and absolutely scratch-resistant.

With the aim of making Ulm more sustainable and thus also cleaner, a working group on the topic of “Reusable systems for gastronomy” came together last autumn on the initiative of the Agenda Office of the City of Ulm. In addition to the City of Ulm, the Dehoga Ulm/Alb-Donau district and Ulmer City Marketing, the participants included the Ulm waste disposal companies, BUND and Greenpeace.
The reason for this was, on the one hand, the increasing amount of waste and the pollution caused by disposable packaging from to-go meals in downtown Ulm, which was exacerbated by the corona pandemic. On the other hand, the initiative serves to support the catering establishments, which will be obliged to offer or accept reusable containers for to-go food and drinks from 2023.
The aim is to create a large number of delivery points and at the same time a high level of acceptance on the part of customers through a large number of companies using one and the same system.
After comparing different reusable systems and after extensive discussion and exchange with catering establishments, the “Reusable” initiative agreed to recommend the Relevo system with the glass containers from the renowned manufacturer Arcoroc. Arcoroc glass containers are high-quality, durable containers made of tempered glass, which is up to five times more resistant than untempered glass and is comparatively light.
The containers can be reused up to 2,000 times, are 100 percent recyclable and are leak-proof and absolutely scratch-resistant. At the same time, they enable unrestricted enjoyment due to their odor and taste neutrality. The advantages of the Relevo system are that the costs for the companies are calculated according to the number of fillings, i.e. “pay per use” and there are no acquisition costs.
In addition, HoGaKa Profi GmbH Ulm is an experienced contact person for the Relevo system with a high degree of acceptance on site and takes care of inventory management, according to Ulm city manager Sandra Walter.

This is how the loan of reusable tableware works

– The catering business fills its to-go food & drinks in the reusable tableware.
– The guest scans the QR code on the container using the Relevo app – the dishes are then handed out to him free of charge.
– The guest returns the crockery used to one of the participating partner companies within a maximum of 14 days and ends the rental by scanning the return label on site.
– The catering business washes the returned reusable dishes and can then hand them out to guests again.

“We are very pleased that well-known gastro and pleasure establishments from Ulm and Neu-Ulm have signaled their participation right from the start,” informed the city manager.
Start in the first step Barrel House, Staib Bakery, Bella Vista, Der Wilde Wirt, Edeka Dörflinger, Elinaki, Klingenstein Blaustein, Concert Hall, Lago, Smalah and the Shipmen’s Guild Hall with the new reusable system. More businesses will be added soon.
“Even if we are still at the beginning, we are pleased that the first step towards a uniform reusable system for the catering trade in Ulm and Neu-Ulm has been taken and that a large number of companies have already decided in favor of this sustainable solution right from the start”. , says Sandra Walter. “Now it’s a matter of inspiring the guests and customers and thus encouraging other catering establishments to join in order to constantly expand the network of distribution points,” added Wilhelm SchubertGastronomy section of the Dehoga district office in Ulm/Alb-Donau.
