Eco friendly packaging and catering disposables which are environmentally safe and always completely compostable.
ABOUT THE BRAND
Vegware manufactures certified compostable catering disposables for everything needed for food to go. All Vegware’s disposables are made from low-carbon, plastic-free, recycled or renewable materials and unlike most foodservice packaging; Vegware can be simply composted together with food waste after use.
VISION & MISSION
Vegware is a manufacturer and visionary brand, the global specialist in plant-based compostable foodservice packaging and they’ve been manufacturing the world’s best eco products since 2006 in the UK, USA, Australia, and Hong Kong, with distribution throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Caribbean.
WHY THEY’RE CONSCIOUS
The Earth has finite resources. Disposables are used for such a short time, so it makes sense to switch to renewable materials, reserving conventional plastics for applications where they can’t be easily replaced. In 2014, by choosing to use their eco packaging, Vegware’s clients saved 2,514 tonnes of carbon – the equivalent of over 2,500 flights from London to Hong Kong.
WHAT’S THEIR FIGHT
PROTECT THE PLANET: Packaging made from plants, not plastic also means less carbon. For example, the recycled sugarcane used to make Vegware’s takeaway plates and boxes has 99% less embodied CO2 than polystyrene.
INNOVATION FOR GOOD: Vegware invests in product development and has brought many compostable innovations to market, including hot cup lids, double wall cups, high-heat cutlery and soup containers.
Vegware continues to be the market leader in plastic-free single-use packaging that helps foodservice with their sustainability goals. Each year, they launch innovative new products to help their clients showcase their food first.
