What are we doing?
We offer event organisers and caterers the service of renting reusable deposit cups and dishes. If the renting solution alone is not enough, we will provide support along the entire service chain - from manning the return tents and accepting the cups and dishes, to paying the deposit to the guests.
Why do we do it?
Hygienic reusable dishes finally made disposable dishes obsolete. Forever!
Summer festival or office Christmas party? Open air concert or summer outing?
Regardless of the event, Panditops’ reusable drinkware and dishes are the only way to avoid having to use disposable dishes and littering. Luckily, it is very easy!
Our task is to deliver environmentally friendly deposit dishes to the merchants so they can use them for selling drinks and food. We collect the used dishes and wash them carefully so that these could be reused at the next event.
Your task is to always prefer reusable dishes when eating at an event. You will recognise the environmentally friendly dishes by the deposit cup logo. Once you have finished eating, just return the dishes to the seller and receive the deposit you left with the seller when you bought the meal. The process is the same as when returning the deposit package to the return point.
Deposit cup dishes are made in Europe. One deposit cup dish can be reused up to 100 times.
HOW DOES THE DEPOSIT CUP SYSTEM WORK?
The deposit cup system works based on the deposit principle, where a deposit fee is added to the dish issued to the consumer.
When returning the dish, the consumer will get the full deposit back. Eesti Pandipakend will wash the used deposit dishes and reuse them at the next event.
HOW DEPOSIT MONEY MOVES AT THE EVENT
Washing and hygiene
We are very aware of the importance of cleanliness and hygiene. Especially in current times.
Considering this, we have put great emphasis on cleaning the deposit dishes. All our reusable dishes are washed in a special tunnel dishwasher where washing and rinsing solutions suitable for industrial washing machines are used according to water type. Our machine washes all dishes using a 82-degree water and then drying them with a 94-degree airflow. We test the washed dishes using a luminometer to ensure cleanliness for ourselves and for you.
This is extremely important, * because it is the only way to ensure that dangerous viruses and bacteria cannot harm you.
Once the deposit cups are thoroughly cleaned, we immediately place them in special boxes and seal them carefully, and then take them to the designated warehouse to wait for the next event.
*When washing the deposit dishes, we adhere to the virus prevention guides published on the Food and Veterinary Office’s website: A virus is killed by thorough heat processing because it is known that heat processing at 60 °C for at least 30 minutes is an efficient way to kill other viruses. Coronavirus is killed on surfaces in 2 minutes at 90 degrees.
