Biodegradable & Compostable Restaurant Supplies - Why you need to make the switch.

Your Customers Care

Sustainable foodservice & restaurant packaging has never been more important. You don't need to take our word for it, take the word of the 92% of respondents in the 2017 Sustainable Packaging Study performed by Packaging Digest.

They're No Longer Hard to Source

In the past, sourcing of sustainable and eco friendly foodservice disposables was nearly impossible, as manufacturers and distributors were not yet seeing enough demand to justify bringing these new products to market. However, the foodservice packaging industry has made great strides in producing great packaging and disposable products that are not only eco-friendly, but also look chic and perform excellently.

You've Seen the Trend for Yourself

According to our friends at the Foodservice Packaging Institute (FPI), "Environmentally friendly or sustainable packaging remains a long-term overall trend. Specifically, compostable packaging was mentioned in an overwhelming number of responses. Other trends include the shift to a more natural look through the use of Kraft paper over bleached paper to promote the belief that “brown is the new green.” Conversely, another trend of note includes an increase in graphics and color as operators recognize the opportunity to promote their brand on packaging"

If you're a restaurant owner, chances are you eat out quite a bit yourself in order to keep up with trends and learn from your competition. If you've been paying attention, you've definitely seen the enormous increase in sustainable packaging made from molded bagasse fiber, bamboo, wheatstraw, sugarcane, polylactic acid (PLA), and even fallen palm leaves. Not only have these items become popular as a result of their benefits to the environment, but also because they're trendy and in style.

Everyone Loves Free Influence Marketing

In what is now the "Instagram Generation", the packaging you choose heavily affects whether or not you'll get the free social media marketing boost that every restaurant desires. Millennials and Generation Z in particular LOVE posting pictures of their food and beverages on social media, automatically shooting out an incognito advertisement and providing social proof to all of their friends and followers for your restaurant, cafe, or other foodservice operation. Even if you don't care at all about the environment, using what's currently in style will help you, and what's in style is biodegradable and compostable foodservice packaging.
