With the increasing need for replacement of plastic-free cutlery we have teamed up with the food service distributor Bionatic to launch a fibre-based cutlery range that offer a series of spoons, knives and forks.
New guidelines require new innovations
Since the European Single-Use Plastics Directive (SUP) was introduced, both consumers and member states have started to reconsider many plastic packaging items on the market. By 2021, plastic cutlery will be banned in the EU. While targeting some of the issues related to unrecyclable items and potential littering, the demand for eating on-the-go will remain. There is therefore a great need for a new generation of food service packaging to fill this gap.
The next generation of food service packaging
We are a strong group of experts in barrier packaging, material converting, heat pressing and more. Based on our dedication to create fit-for-purpose and innovative solutions, the development team has created a set of cutlery. The range includes folded, pressed and moulded fibre solutions to suit the varying needs on the market. Typical applications will be mixed salads, different types of fast food and ice cream.
The new cutlery range is designed to be repulpable, compostable, biodegradable, FSC certified, sourced from European wood and without any plastic content. The range can compete with plastics in terms of strength, weight and barrier properties.
