Celebrating British Sandwiches

The ultimate food to go, the sandwich is a British creation with the 4th Earl of Sandwich creating this culinary icon in the mid-1700’s.

Nearly three centuries later, our love for the sandwich continues. The UK consumer purchases 3.5 billion sandwiches a week, according to The British Sandwich Week & Food to Go Association.

The sandwich is clearly one food trend that is here to stay.

Whether you call it a sarnie, buttie, barm or bap, Vegware has the packaging you need for takeaway sandwiches with our new sandwich & wrap boxes.

New! Vegware sandwich & wrap boxes

The range has a unified look with matching brown kraft on the inside and out. It also features the Green Leaf band, a new design soon to be on many Vegware stock lines.

Easy-to-use closures make it simple to package, and access, the sandwich or wrap.

The clever structures use less board and less PLA without compromising on quality. The sustainable paperboard has a water-based grease-resistant lining, and the windows are plant-based PLA.

As with all Vegware, the products are commercially compostable where accepted.

Available in three sizes – standard, deep fill, and triple – the widths for the three are 65, 75, and 85mm, respectively. A back-closure system gives them a neater profile when side by side.

Meet the Green Leaf band – a step-change in on-product labelling

Experience has highlighted the critical role on-product messaging plays in reducing contamination and ensuring waste is properly recycled.

Based on this, we’re updating the design of our stock lines to provide a key visual cue for compostability: Introducing the Green Leaf band by Vegware.

Function Meets Design

The Green Leaf band, a stylized version of the Vegware logo, has a repeating leaf pattern that’s bold, striking, and easily identifiable as a compostable cup.

Just as important, it’s printed with the wording ‘commercially compostable where accepted’.

This way, whoever comes into contact with the Vegware product – from customer and foodservice team member to waste collector – it’s clear to dispose of used Vegware in the compost and food waste bin, for it then to be taken to commercial composting.

The Green Leaf band unifies our products and provides a visual prompt that can be used on other resources like bins and in-cafe posters.

It is currently available on our embossed cups, with Vegware cold cups, single wall hot cups, soup containers and the deli range to follow across 2018.

This is the next phase of Vegware’s commitment to waste management and producer responsibility. While still allowing you to showcase your food and drink in an appetizing way.

Meet our Bon Appetit bowls!

Meet our newest creation, the 32oz PLA-lined paper food bowl and PLA-lined paper lid.

These Bon Appetit bowls are an excellent eco option for serving up delicious curries, colourful burrito bowls and more. Great for a wide range of cold and hot food.

With a top diameter of 18.5cm, our Bon Appetit bowl offers a panoramic view of any delicious servings.

Another Vegware innovation, our bowl and lid are both made from plants, not plastic and commercially compostable where facilities exist.
