Catering Disposables Catering disposables are a staple for mobile caterers, restaurant chains, coffee shops and takeaway establishments. They are ideal for everyday use as they reduce food waste and are also practical for outdoor events such as weddings, buffets and food markets.

This comprehensive disposable range includes compostable and biodegradable products from innovative brands such as Fiesta Green, Vegware, Plastico, Goodlife and many more who are working towards producing zero waste food packaging.A Range of Catering DisposablesWe understand that not all catering businesses serve their foods or produce in dining areas. Some establishments also diversify to offer takeaway food and drink options. Because of this, we stock a range of specialist catering supplies to suit all food and drink business types. Our range of disposable cutlery and food containers are popular with fast food restaurants, cafes and coffee shops. They come in a range of styles and price points to suit your budget and taste. We're committed to providing the takeaway industry with a wealth of serving options. This ensures we meet the ever-changing demands and tastes placed upon them by the UK consumer. Disposable options provide serving flexibility and customer freedom, without compromising. Having a large range of quality takeaway specific items enables you to serve a wider customer base. For many the cost of disposable cutlery, plates, bowls, straws, napkins and accessories can be a huge factor in how they choose their supply. So, you can rest assured that our range of disposable items are not only very affordable but provide you with serving quality. If you hadn't considered the idea of takeout food and drink, then you could increase the appeal of your kitchen creations with a few additions. With a wide variety of styles available and many exclusive brands, we are sure that you will find a product to suit your needs.Disposable Cups & LidsFrom hot drinks to cold drinks, a proper disposable cup or takeaway cup is both convenient and designed for customer satisfaction. In pubs, it's sensible to offer plastic pint glasses if you've got large crowds or don't want the potential for the mess of smashed glasses. It's also much safer to offer plastic drinking vessels if you are serving larger crowds. Coffee shops and cafes tend to be one of the biggest users of disposable coffee cups and so we cater directly to you. Should you want to allow customers to take their hot drinks with them without detriment to the quality of your product. We can offer an array of varied disposable cups and lids to suit almost every single catering business.Disposable CutleryIdeal for usage in all types of food business, disposable knives, forks and spoons reduce the pressure on your kitchen. Using them means there is one less thing to wash and clean. Of course, there is a wide selection of throwaway options to suit your budget and business type. Disposable cutlery is a great option if takeaway food is a main priority in your business. We can provide a selection of plastic and wooden utensils for expert mobile dining should you be seeking a one-use option for your customers.Disposable GlassesA stalwart in the catering supplies industry, disposable glasses have improved year-on-year. They are now often comparable to the actual glass counterparts. Because we understand how important the drinking experience is, we only stock some of the most popular and best quality disposable glasses. Plastic glasses are affordable and durable. Plus, they're perfect for events, outdoor catering and hospitality companies. From wine glasses to tumblers, shot glasses to pint glasses, our disposable options allow you to provide a wide range of drinking vessels.Disposable Plates & BowlsFor outdoor and event catering, disposable plates and bowls allow you to serve up dishes that can be thrown away once finished. From foam plates to plastic bowls, and even disposable sauce dishes, there is likely to be an option suited to your scenario.Food & Takeaway ContainersStock up on cartons, trays and burger boxes with our affordable options that have been designed for the takeaway restaurant trade. The sheer range of takeaway food options means that there are going to be very specific serving methods. Such as the traditional wrapping used in Fish and Chip shops, to the sandwich containers used in bakeries and sandwich bars. Our range includes Children's meal boxes, cake boxes and salad containers. There is also an option to make any of your food options almost 100% takeaway friendly.Napkins & Napkin DispensersWhether you're focusing on the takeaway market or not, you can provide quality single-use napkins for your diners. No matter how hard businesses have tried, the napkin is here to stay, with freshening up wipes also being a mainstay in many locations. See our full range of napkins. From functional and affordable through to high-end luxury, stylish serving accessories.Straws & DispensersDisposable straws are popular in all types of business. From the high-end to the cafe or coffee shop, it stands to reason as almost any drink type can be enjoyed through a straw. If you're serving alcohol, many drinkers now prefer a gin and tonic without having to deal with the ice. A straw means no issues for those with sensitive teeth. Keeping track of your straws is no mean feat either, that's why dedicated straw dispensers and holders are a great bar or countertop addition. These even allow your customers to get themselves a straw without needing staff help.Why Choose The Compostable Cup Company for Catering Disposals?As one of the UK’s leading manufacturers in compostable carrier bags and packs.

Ranging from eco packaging to compostable paper cups and straws, this selection of green catering supplies will help you lower your business's carbon footprint and reduce the amount of waste you send to landfill. Using eco disposables and bio packaging also makes for a quick and easy way to boost your environmental credentials without costing the earth - perfect for any green-minded festival, mobile catering event, workplace or café.What is Compostable?Compostable means that a product is capable of disintegrating into natural elements in a compost environment, leaving no toxicity in the soil. This typically must occur in about 90 days. Some companies advertise their products as merely biodegradable. This is not necessarily a good thing since nearly everything will biodegrade in 10,000 years!Compostable vs. BiodegradableBiodegradable and compostable can be confusing terms. Technically, both words define biological processes, but they have become prevalent marketing terms as well. This tends to blur the difference between the two, which is understandably confusing!Biodegradation is a larger natural process that can happen in a number of ways, including composting. Composting is very specific process that happens only in situations with the right microorganisms and environmental conditions – and it creates humus, water, and heat. Other biodegradation processes do not make humus, which is an important part of soils. Shop Now

In an age where out sugar industry is complaining that as a population, we are consuming less sugar, more effort should be to make biodegradable products with the sugar.The more of these products that are produced the cheaper they will become and more likely to push out the use of plastic and their Styrofoam counter parts. Buy producing and purchasing more biodegradable products we can significantly reduce landfill. Purchasing and producing plastics contributes to global warming and other environmental issues such as the Littering of our oceans with plastic. This has a devastating effect of killing off marine life to near extinction.Our 2 - 4oz portion pots fit Vegware slim cups as an insert for snack combos, and our standard cups now have a 3oz insert. Made from PLA, a sustainable, renewable plant-based material. These are the perfect eco-friendly product to use!Compostable vs. Paper CupsBoth paper and plastic cups can be made from recycled materials, making them a better option for the environment than if they were conventionally manufactured. Recycled materials save energy by eliminating the need to obtain raw materials. Recycling also reduces the amount of waste in landfills. Despite the availability of recycling options, neither paper nor plastic cups typically are recycled. For the consumer, plastic and paper cups offer savings as well as convenience. When purchased in bulk, disposable cups cost pennies each. Rather than risk broken mugs or glasses when you're eating on the go, you can use a plastic or paper cup.Why Choose Us for Compostable Cold Cups and Hot Cups?As one of the UK’s leading manufacturers in compostable carrier bags and packs.

Plastic Free Cups The Compostable Cup Company -Dedicated to manufacturing great quality disposable cups in Britain.Our Cups are PE Plastic and PLA Free, Recyclable and Compostable both commercially and at home!Why not get your own branded cups? starting from just 1000 cups for double wall.They're a lot more competitively priced than you realise with fast lead times.Our PE Plastic Free cups are the perfect environmentally friendly alternative to conventional disposable cups. Our cups are lined with a water-based barrier coating solution, opposed to regular disposable cups which are lined with polyethylene (PE), a finite, oil-based resource, which can be harmful to our environment when not collected and recycled through an approved scheme.As our cups are PE plastic free and PLA Free, they are able to be recycled via conventional UK mixed paper recycling streams which are easily accessible for all consumers, unlike PE lined and PLA lined cups which require collecting and distributing to specialist facilities. In addition, our new water based coated cups are also certified compostable as per EU13432, being able to fully compost in industrial composting facilities.Additionally, all of our cup board is sourced from sustainably managed forestry and is either FSC or PEFC accredited.As this cup is manufactured and distributed in the UK, it doesn’t have to travel thousands of miles around the world to get to its final destination, unlike many other ‘eco’ disposable cups on the market, massively reducing this product’s carbon footprint.But if price per cup is a concern, we do have the ability to offer cheaper alternatives, but there would be higher minimum orders, longer lead times and bigger carbon footprint as they would be produced by our partners in the Far East.We do have a few stock designed cups readily available.FEATURES:Aqueous Coating.Zero Polyethylene (PE) content.Fully compatible with UK Mixed Paper Recycling streams.FSC approved Virgin Fibre baseboard helps support a circular economy.Compostable (EU Standard DIN 13432:2000).Approved for Food Contact (EU 1935/2004 Food Legislation Framework).Allergen free (EU 1169/2011 and EU 78/2014).Digital, Litho and Flexo printing options available.Minimum print run from 1000 units.RESPONSIBLE DISPOSALOur plastic free cups are designed to be easy to dispose of at end of life. If you are on a high street you can dispose of these in the normal paper bin. This cup can go through the same process as a newspaper, washing the inks away and recycling the paper easily. Had your coffee on the way to the office? This cup can be disposed of in the paper/cardboard bin for easy recycling. Had your coffee on the way home? Pop it in your mixed recycling bin, again just like you would a newspaper. Near a compost bin? This will work too. Our cup lining can be recycled or composted, and unlike the fashionable compostable cups on the market, this will even break down in a home compost bin.Call now on 01233 367369 or contact us here to discuss your requirementsCOMING EARLY 2021!Unfortunately we have had a slight delay in the new machines for the 2 news sizes due to the pandemic, but hopefully we will be back on track very soon.Half Pint CE Marked Plastic & PLA Free Paper CupsPint CE Marked Plastic & PLA Free Paper CupsTwisted Origination Limited T/A The Compostable Cup Company have compiled the information contained in this site in good faith and has attempted to ensure it is accurate at the time of inclusion.
