The boxes, which are an advance on the ‘doggy bag’, are made from wood pulp that is produced from sustainable forests in Europe and coated with a compostable material to render them leak proof. Biopac are also including a bag in this range which can be used as a carrier for the box – both branded with ‘Too Good To Waste’.
Functional and sustainable, they can be fully composted when they’ve reached their end of life.
The Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA), which are actively supporting this product range, has quoted an average restaurant throws out 21 tonnes of food a year and that embarrassment is the main reason more diners don’t ask to take food home. About a third of that waste is swept directly from diners’ plates into the bin.
Mark Brigden, technical director at Biopac, said: “With our new range of ‘Too Good To Waste’ products, restaurants can now encourage diners to take their leftovers home to enjoy later, and at the same time help to reduce the amount of food that is wasted.”
