This week at Vegware we’re celebrating our first birthday in the US! It seems just like yesterday we opened our office in Huntington Beach.
Our first year has seen us add some new faces to our growing team and increase our supply of products across the country from coast to coast. Our Zero Waste Director, Julia has had a whirlwind year working closely with clients and composters to set up zero waste programs.
With a wide range of businesses now seeking plastic-free packaging alternatives, we’ve seen a surge of interest in our compostable solution and this has created some amazing opportunities for us.
Our solution is simple as our founder and CEO, Joe Frankel explains:
“You can’t recycle food with plastic in it, and you can’t recycle plastic with food on it. Moving to compostable catering disposables means that food and packaging waste can be recycled together. We believe compostables are the only true recycling solution for the category. That’s why we don’t make or sell anything that’s plastic.”
Just as the last year has flown by, we’re sure the next will follow suit. We’d like to thank everyone who has supported us in this time and look forward to seeing what the future has to hold!
