Consumers and foodservice businesses are looking for ways to eliminate the use of polystyrene foam for take-out containers and disposable dinnerware.
Richmond, CA (PRWEB) June 08, 2011
Excellent Packaging & Supply, an innovator and wholesale distributor of sustainable, biodegradable, and nature-based packaging for foodservice and other applications, has added the complete range of Bridge-Gate compostable serving ware and take-out packaging made from 100 percent renewable resources to its extensive selection of products available through its BioMass Packaging® division (http://www.biomasspackaging.com). Excellent Packaging now carries Bridge-Gate plates, bowls, clamshells and hinged containers, trays, platters and lids — all of which are made entirely from renewable, organic, GMO-free agricultural wheat fibers that are a natural by-product of crop harvests and certified compostable by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI).
“Consumers and foodservice businesses are looking for ways to eliminate the use of polystyrene foam for take-out containers and disposable dinnerware, and we’re delighted to partner with Bridge-Gate to offer a wide range of versatile solutions that address this growing need,” said Allen King, president of Excellent Packaging & Supply. “All of our customers who use the Bridge-Gate line of natural products tell us that they prefer it to whatever they were using before. And, so do their customers.”
The Bridge-Gate range of sustainable, disposable serviceware products is designed to disintegrate and biodegrade swiftly and safely in both a backyard compost pile and a professionally managed composting facility. All the Bridge-Gate products offered by Excellent Packaging are made in factories that are ISO 14001- and ISO 9001-certified, and are of a consistently high quality. To further reduce the carbon footprint of the Bridge-Gate range, each product is designed to fit into the smallest carton possible. The shipping cartons themselves are also designed with maximum efficiencies in mind; smaller cartons means more cartons can be loaded onto the truck, which means less fuel used and fewer carbon emissions.
Bridge-Gate wheat-based foodservice products offer caterers and foodservice operators a number of distinct benefits that appeal to conservation-minded consumers:
- Increased durability and resistance to moisture and oils
- Can be used with hot and cold foods
- Certified as 100 percent bio-based
- Made from wheat that is GMO-free
- Chemical- and bleach-free
