When it comes to serving food to consumers on the go, disposable takeaway containers offer a convenient way to present the food both beautifully and hygienically. It's important to consider that not all takeaway containers are created equal! Conventional single-use containers like polystyrene clamshells and plastic takeaway containers are made from fossil fuels. After a short useful life of approximately 20 minutes, conventional disposable plastic containers usually end up in landfill where they take decades to breakdown and release greenhouse gases in the process.
We offer eco-friendly options for takeaway food containers – made from rapidly renewable, responsibly sourced resources like sugarcane pulp, bioplastic and paperboard. Our clear bioplastic bowls and sugarcane pulp products are commercially compostable to EN13432 standards.
Our BioCane range is made from reclaimed and rapidly renewable sugarcane pulp – a by-product of the sugar-refining industry. Our range of sugarcane takeaway containers includes clam shells, square containers, rectangle containers, bowls and sauce cups with lids.
Our sustainably-sourced paperboard range includes bowls with lids, chip cups, boxes and trays, noodle boxes, lunch boxes, and sandwich wedges. Prefer clear takeaway containers? Our clear bowls with lids and sauce cups with lids are made from PLA, a plant-based bioplastic. Choose bioplastic over conventional plastic and reduce greenhouse gases by 75%!
BioPak eco-friendly takeaway containers are either recyclable or commercially compostable. Composting food packaging reduces greenhouse gases, returns nutrients back to the earth and improves soil quality, and costs less than sending waste to landfill.
Where composting is not an option, many councils recycle paper takeaway packaging with other paperboard products. Alternatively, we can direct you to industrial composting facilities in your local area – call us to find out more.
