In December of 2017, from Smart Cups’ 23,000 sq. ft. facility, located in Southern California, we launched The World's First Printed Beverage to the global market via direct to consumer on this website. Founded by Chris Kanik, Smart Cups is proud to be an American brand, operated in Mission Viejo, California with all products manufactured on U.S. soil.
Smart Cups is a sustainability-driven technology company with a mission to provide a mindful path forward for the beverage industry and beyond. Having created the world’s first printed beverage, an energy drink, Smart Cups eliminates the need to bottle and ship liquids, which, in turn, significantly reduces our carbon footprint. To put that into perspective, a truck that would ordinarily carry 96,000 12 oz cans of soda, can instead carry 1.2 million Smart Cups thanks to the stackable, waterless design. This translates to a reduction of shipping weight and in turn reduction of CO2 emissions.
Smart Cups entered the trillion-dollar beverage industry with our proprietary technology applied to a simple cup as proof of our game changing concept. However, with the unique ability to print ingredients on any type of surface, our technology can be easily implemented across a myriad of industries—offering an eco-forward approach to the way products are manufactured, shipped and consumed. From life-saving medications to personal care and hygiene products, spirits, cosmetics, cleaning supplies and even water purification systems, the potential of Smart Cups is endless.
We have created a revolutionary new standard of environmentally conscious products that will usher in a brighter and more sustainable future for everyone. This is the beginning of that journey.
By supporting Smart Cups today, you are supporting our planet-saving innovations on the horizon.
Smart Cups now, for the future.
