Not headline news, but we’ve added wooden stirrers as a stock item. However, the good news is that we think ours are probably the cheapest on the net.
We’ve extended our range of compostable sandwich wedges by adding two new sizes – a standard and and triple fill – to add to the deep fill which has proven very popular since it was launched last year. The updated range of wedges still use kraft board with a corn starch window. More information can be found here.
Our bag range has been extended to include compostable sandwich bags made from PLA. They have a 40 micron white back, and 25 micron clear front, and come in 190x190mm and 260x260mm sizes. We are also offering PLA sheets for food wrapping in medium 300x400ml and large 350x500ml sizes.
In addition, we’ve taken stock of biodegradable greaseproof sheets, and a range of recycled paper carrier bags.
We’re now offering CE-marked compostable pint and half-pint cups made from corn starch. The CE marks mean that they can legally be used to serve beer from un-measured taps…perfect for glass-free venues.
Look out for them at a festival near you this summer!
Our deli range – all made from clear corn starch in the form of PLA – has been extended to include hinged-lid containers. They are of course fully compostable, and come in 250, 375, 500, 750 and 1000ml sizes.
Ideal for takeaway salads…watch out for our new PLA salad fork, which should be hitting the warehouse mid-March.
To complement our popular bagasse (waste fibre from pressing sugar cane) takeway boxes, we’ve launched plates and bowls made from the same material.
They are excellent value for money, and offer far superior performance to paper plates.
Our latest product is a mini ice-cream / sampling spoon made from corn starch (PLA). These spoons have a much nicer mouth-feel than their wooden counterparts, and unlike plastic, they are made from an annually-renewable resource and are of course fully compostable.
Combine with our 1oz PLA compostable sampling cups for eco-friendly sampling and direct marketing!
There’s more information and images on the cutlery page.
Finally – an eco-friendly sandwich wedge! Our new wedges are made from unbleached card, and have a corn starch liner, and clear corn starch window. The result is a product which is 100% compostable. Great.

We’re delighted to have launched a range of clear compostable cups and deli containers made from corn starch (PLA). They are light, strong, safe, and represent an eco-friendly alternative to standard plastic cups. Both flat and domed lids are available, and we’ve even got straws to match!
There’s more information on our cups and deli page.
We have now launched our first compostable film bags. One of our first customers had this to say:
“We have recently taken delivery of our custom bags and are over the moon
Little Cherry retails a comprehensive range of eco-friendly children’s party
products, which include 100% recycled FSC certified gift wrap and
invitations, printed using vegetable dyes. We were interested in sourcing an
eco-friendly packaging to protect our products through our storage and
We had the choice of using either biodegradable PLA packaging or Vegware’s
line of custom made compostable bags. After looking into both we found that
Vegware’s custom bags were not only far superior in terms of quality and
feel, but they were also more eco-friendly as they are compostable and made
from GM free wood pulp.
We are delighted that our packaging choice does not have a negative effect
on the environment, and very happy that our product presentation is not
Vegware were extremely helpful, responsive and knowledgeable throughout, and
we will be happy to continue to use them in the future!”
