Product Focus: Disposable Cutlery

Friday, February 9th, 2018

plastic cutleryWe’ve got a large range of different disposable cutlery available; these differ in both style and quality. The summary below may assist you in choosing the correct type for your requirements.

Disposable white cutlery: This is the most cost effective option, a standard grade of disposable cutlery. The lowest cost per unit of all the cutlery we stock, also great for high volume usage. This range is made from high impact Polystyrene and is 100% recyclable. *cheapest option*

Black disposable cutlery: Our black cutlery is extremely similar to the regular range of disposable cutlery, it’s simply coloured black to offer a different appearance to the more common white. Customers often choose this range to tie in with existing disposable glassware or the theme of their event. It’s the same as the white disposable cutlery in terms of strength.

Clear plastic cutlery: Our clear cutlery is a more heavy-duty product, made from a thicker grade of plastic. These are great for occasions when you require a stronger product, either due to the type of event or perhaps because more substantial food is being served. Smaller portions / snacks are perfectly suited to the economy grade of cutlery, but if you’re serving a meal of more substance you might want a stronger knife and fork for example. Again, this is 100% recyclable.

Biodegradable cutlery: This is our premium range of cutlery, by far the strongest and most substantial out of all the options. The plastic is much thicker and ideally suited to full meals or tougher-to-handle foods. As the name suggests this range cutlery also has the advantage of being biodegradable, it’s produced using an additive called “addiflex”. The items will naturally disintegrate and turn to fertile earth, for this reason these have a shelf life of 1.6 years. In addition, you can also recycle the items. *Strongest option*

Wooden cutlery: These are a more recent addition to the cutlery range, available as full size knives, forks, spoons and teaspoons. The product is made from 100% birch wood, supplied only from sustainable and ethical sources. Wooden cutlery is stronger than the regular disposable range of plastic cutlery, and has the advantage of being both visually appealing and tactile to handle. Commercial customers often choose this option if they already use a natural coloured range of disposables (food boxes etc), or wish to present a more premium image with the food they serve. *Premium appearance*

  • 1 x 100 Plastic Forks
  • 1 x 100 Plastic Dessert Spoons

New Range of Extra-Strong Biodegradable Plastic Cutlery

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

We’ve further expanded our existing range of plastic cutlery with the new “AddiFlex” variety of biodegradable knives, forks and spoons.

As the name suggests, this range is completely degradable as well as being fully recyclable. There is no need to separate and compost the items, they will actually turn to fertile earth if simply throw away with regular refuse.

AddiFlex is the chemical additive that makes this possible, the stock has a shelf life of 1.6 years after which the additive will start to break down the product structure.

Traditional plastic cutlery disposed of in this manner takes decades to properly decompose, obviously this is not especially environmentally friendly if the product ends up in a landfill. Where products cannot be recycled these items provide an eco-friendly solution to disposable products. The end result is fresh fertile earth rather than unnecessary plastic waste.

Our range of oxo-biodegradable cutlery is not to be confused with the CPLA cutlery supplied – AddiFlex plastic cutlery is completely recyclable whereas CPLA cannot be easily recycled using conventional processing facilities.

In addition to the obvious environmental benefits, this range of disposable cutlery is also much stronger than our existing range of white or silver items.  The heavy-duty construction means that breakages are far less likely and the products can be used in a wider variety of scenarios.

These goods are available to purchase from stock straight away either back the pack (100 pieces each) or in bulk by the case (10 packs of 100 pieces).

Please contact our friendly sales team on 0844 4995456 if you have any other questions regarding this range.
