Cash and carry wholesaler Makro has expanded its range of catering supplies to include a line of 100% biodegradable disposable plates and bowls.
The company, which sells everything from chef whites to commercial fridges and freezers at its 30 UK stores, is keen to extend its range of environmentally-friendly products in order to help caterers go green.
There are three designs in the range, with each set including 50 white plates.
Karen Hornby, own brand manager at Makro, said: “Environmental considerations are becoming increasingly important when making purchasing decisions. It is essential to give businesses such options by offering a range of biodegradable and compostable alternatives to their existing choices. Our new range of plates offers an eco-friendly solution to caterers and represents great value at the same time.”
Makro also says the products are made in a factory that is powered by renewable energy sources.
