Product spotlight: Disposable Paper Plates

Friday, October 5th, 2018

Today we’re taking a look at a long-standing member of our product range, the ever dependable paper plate. These are a hugely versatile product and a mainstay of home parties and special occasions. They’re used for everything from birthday parties to outdoor events, basically any occasion where you might want to avoid piles of washing up, or if there’s a risk of breakages from using traditional crockery.

We’ve now got lots of options for disposable plates and bowls, made from either paper or sugarcane. The heavy-duty sugarcane items have gained huge popularity in recent times due to their biodegradable properties, and the fact that they’re made from what is essentially a waste product. They’re also very strong items, but this does mean they’re also more expensive.

The humble paper plate is available in the most common sizes; 6” (15cm), 7” (17.5cm) and 9” (23cm). This should make them usable for most occasions that demand a disposable paper plate.

What most people don’t realise is that our range of disposable paper plates are also specifically designed to be biodegradable, unlike a lot of similar items from other manufacturers our plates don’t feature a PE (plastic polyethylene) coating. They’re stamped in such a manner that they have sufficient moisture resistance without any form of additional coating. They can be also be recycled along with your regular paper waste.

Disposable paper plates seem to have come under scrutiny in recent times due to increased pressure on reducing usage of disposables; however untreated plates actually have pretty sound environmental credentials. The raw materials are even from renewable and sustainable sources.

We sell these in either packs of 100 or full boxes of 1000 to suit most occasions, you can find disposable paper plates on our site at: http://www.eventsupplies.co.uk/product_listing,9,17,Disposable_Paper_Plates_.html

Why Choose Biodegradable Plates?

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

We can supply two grades of disposable plates, either a traditional paper plate or the new sugarcane biodegradable plates, but why should you opt for the more expensive sugarcane variety? This very much depends on your requirements, many customers find that the standard grade of disposable paper plate is a perfectly adequate and economical choice.

The benefits of using the sugarcane plates become apparent when you intend to serve hot or oily foods.  Because the sugarcane or “Bagasse” material is thicker and more rigid, the plate’s integrity is not compromised by foods of this nature; this means no more soggy absorbent plates!

Another key benefit of our biodegradable plates, and indeed the rest of our sugarcane range, is the ability to use the plates in a Microwave. This is ideal for cooking / reheating snacks or pasta based meals.

You can find a full range of biodegradable plates under our “biodegradable tableware” category, along with a meal boxes, trays and other food containers.

We stock our range of round sugarcane plates in the following sizes:

6" Biodegradable Plates - £4.01 per pack (125)

7" Biodegradable Plates - £5.50 per pack (125)

9" Biodegradable Plates - £9.01 per pack (125)

10" Biodegradable Plates - £12.19 per pack (125)

In addition to the prices above, we also supply the items in full case quantities of 500 plates. This represents the most cost effective way of purchasing larger volumes.
