SUSTAINABLE FOOD PACKAGING
Eco-friendly food packaging; Biodegradable & 100% compostable
Because of the growing interest to remove plastic from single use packaging, we have invested in our products and are proud to introduce a new range of Eco-ware using Ingeo™ Bioplastic PLA. This packaging is made from plants, not oil and has sustainability at the heart of the production process.
Our eco-friendly food packaging includes coffee cups, lids, cutlery, ice cream tubs, portion pots, soup bowls and takeaway food boxes & trays; everything you need for a fast food establishment or street deli.
Nearly all our takeaway food packaging products are made using Ingeo™ Bioplastic PLA which is a more environmentally friendly option to the common plastic liners used in standard coffee cups or clear plastic cups. You can order via our online shop with next day delivery.
as our stocked fast food packaging, we can also customise many of our product
range with your own branding, just get in touch for a quotation. Custom food packaging can be made using regular
methods and techniques or by using Ingeo™ Bioplastic PLA, so please state your
preference when making an enquiry.
Introducing Ingeo™ Bioplastic PLA
Ingeo™ Bioplastic PLA is a thermoplastic with the physical characteristics and performance of plastic. Naturally advanced Ingeo™ resins used in food service-ware have a significantly lower carbon footprint that the fossil fuel-based polymers that it replaces, because the manufacture of Ingeo™ Bioplastic PLA emits fewer greenhouse gasses (GHGs) than the comparable manufacture of all common petrochemical based plastics. The innovation of turning plants into plastic, allows us to exclude non-renewable resources (such as oil) from the products of our range.
Our smoothie cups, portion pots, lids and deli bowls are all
made purely with Ingeo™
Bioplastic PLA and our coffee cups and soup cups are made with paper and
lined with the same material instead of plastic. This sustainable solution is
both commercially compostable and biodegradable.
Our Ecoware products give you a sustainable option that
maintains exceptional performance with superior insulation. Other features:
- Commercially compostable
- Renewable Resources
- Paper from managed forests
- Oil free
- Cold content Friendly
- Hot content Friendly
- Non-toxic inks
What’s the difference between our EcoCups & conventional paper cups?
The vast majority of coffee cups in the marketplace are still lined with plastic. These cups can technically be recycled, albeit by specialist facilities, which are limited in the UK. However, they are not compostable or biodegradable.
As there are only a few facilities that can separate the plastic from the paper, this results in a large number of conventional cups being sent to landfill. Currently we stock single wall and double wall cups in both PE and PLA materials as some of our customers still prefer using plastic coated cups. But, we are extremely committed to our goal of converting all of our customers to our eco-friendly products by 2021.
Our EcoCups are lined with Ingeo™ Bioplastic PLA, meaning there is not just a
lower carbon footprint during the manufacturing process, but the lining we use
enables the cup to be commercially compostable and fulling biodegradable
compared to your standard coffee cups or plastic cups on the market.
Our EcoCup range includes: single wall EcoCup, double wall
EcoCup, clear EcoCups and our deli and soup EcoBowls.
