Reusable foodservice packaging for the hospitality on the go

Friday October 11, 2019

In response to forthcoming legislation on single-use plastic and the resulting demand for viable product alternatives in the catering and hospitality sector, Bunzl Catering Supplies has launched an 8-page brochure containing 86 reusable on the go foodservice products, including hot cups, plates, bowls, cutlery, water bottles and tumblers.

Manufactured from a wide range of reusable materials, including polypropylene, polycarbonate, stainless steel, bamboo and silicone, many of the products can be placed in mixed recycling at their end-of-life and can be identified and segregated at a Material Recovery Facility (MRF).

The brochure includes innovative ECO to Go reusable food containers, designed to be filled with food (to be eaten either on-site or on-the-go) and then later returned to be washed, sanitised and used again. Microwave safe for reheating and stain and odour resistant, ECO to Go containers are fully dishwasher safe and can be used in a deposit return scheme.

Also featured is a reusable hot cup made from 6 used paper cups, from ashortwalk, an award-winning design company led by former Dyson designer and inventor Dan Dicker. Called rCUP, the cup is the world’s first reusable cup made entirely from used paper cups.

Cleverly designed cold drinks bottles are made from a variety of materials including polycarbonate, stainless steel and glass. The innovative borosilicate bottle is an attractive glass water bottle with non-slip silicone sleeve and natural bamboo lid.

Introducing reusable products to our customers forms part of the Bunzl Catering Supplies strategy for delivering the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 12 – target 3. In 2018, the business adopted the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as its roadmap for action. The SDGs underpin its Sustainable Future programme – with the 2019 Sustainable Future brochure due to be launched in November.

Bunzl Catering Supplies also delivers a comprehensive range of reusable crockery, stainless steel cutlery and glassware. For more information contact Bunzl Catering Supplies today.
