Celebration has launched a new range of recyclable paper cutlery under its EnviroWare brand.
The EnviroWare paper cutlery is made from paper produced from sustainable forestry and has full FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) chain of custody accreditations.
The sustainable paper cutlery has been tested and is said to meet the relevant EU regulations for paper products in direct contact with food, and is free from Bisphenol A.
Celebration MD Nick Burton said: “As a leading supplier within the foodservice sector, we understand the increasing pressures our customers face in endeavouring to operate in an environmentally friendly fashion – and consequently we are constantly expanding our range with innovative products.
“Many people think this important focus on sustainability is something new and are then surprised to discover that we launched our EnviroWare range over 12 years ago.”
He added: “We continue to add more products made from sustainable materials such as bagasse, PLA and paper. Another of our paper-based products – our paper straws – are also made from FSC paper and recently gained Vegetarian Society approval and are certified as compostable by Din Certco.”
Celebration’s EnviroWare paper cutlery won a silver award in the Innovation Challenge at this year’s lunch! show at ExCel, London.
The new paper cutlery range was one of 15 finalists – as voted for by visitors and VIP buyers – from 110 entries, and one of six silver prize winners.
The judging panel said: “The EnviroWare paper cutlery is a real contender for the future of foodservice cutlery.”
The EnviroWare paper knife, fork and spoon sets are available in two sizes, plus a paper ice cream spade. The cutlery can be custom printed and is either bulk packed in bags of 100, 10 bags per carton or can be individually wrapped and packed in cartons.
