PLA deli range extended

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.

PLA ice-cream / sampling spoons launched.

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!

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
distribution process.

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!”
