New lower price on biodegradable paper water cones

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2020
Biodegradable Paper Water Cones

Our hugely popular biodegradable water cones are now at an everyday low price of only £32.99 per case (5000). This is a huge reduction on the previous price of £44.99 per case.

These are made from virgin grade paper with no plastic coating at all, meaning they’ll degrade naturally while still being 100% recyclable.

Paper water cones are great to use next to water dispensers, their unique cone shape means it’s impossible to put a full one down and leave it, at least not without making a mess! The result is that people have a drink of water, finish their drink and bin the cone. This is a nice neat and tidy solution for water dispensers. No half empty cups to collect in the office.

We also offer these in smaller packs of 200 for lower volume usage or product trials.

You can find biodegradable water cones on our site at:

Welcome to our new website!

Friday, November 29th, 2019

If you’re reading this, you’ve probably spotted that we’ve had a complete overhaul of our website and brought it bang up to date. We’ve been trading online for well over a decade, our store has grown from a small range of disposable products to a site containing a huge range of disposable catering supplies, reusable plastic glasses, biodegradable catering supplies and much more.

Due to the ever increasing range of products we needed a fresh new design that makes these easier to find and a site that’s easier to navigate.

We’ve condensed the number of categories and arranged products in more logical places in the interest of improving the customer experience.

We’d love to hear from you if you’ve got any comments on the new design, hopefully it’ll have a positive effect as you browse the site.

All customer accounts have been translated across to the new site, if you require order history from the old website we can always provide this on request.
