Deli Soup Cups

We’ve expanded our range of disposable soup cups. There are biodegradable and heavy duty “deli” soup cup options and now our new Brown Kraft range of containers. The Brown cups and lids are interchangeable with the white deli soup cups and lids, meaning you can mix / match the containers as you see fit.

In the biodegradable range we stock 8oz, 12oz, and 16oz sizes. The White and Brown deli soup cups are available in these sizes and also the larger 26oz and 32oz sizes for larger portions, main meals and takeaway use.

Deli soup cups are made from thick 350gsm virgin grade paper board, this provides great heat insulating properties, especially when combined with the vented paper lids.

Samples are available on request.

Solid Black Plastic Glasses

Black Plastic Champagne FlutesBlack coloured plastic glasses are becoming increasingly popular for both our disposable and reusable products; as such we’ve expanded our range and put together a selection of products available in an optional Black colour.

The main use of this style of product is either in the home, or small parties / functions. They differ from their translucent counterparts in that it’s not possible to include any capacity indicators, or lines to denote an approved fill level. For any sort of commercial use you’d require a capacity line (125/175/250ml), for this sort of use a clear glass would be a better choice, however the Black plastic glasses make a great and stylish alternative for home or non-commercial use.

Currently we supply Black plastic glasses in the following styles:

  • Plastic tumblers
  • Cocktail glasses
  • Champagne flutes
  • Wine glasses
  • Soft drink glasses

You can find our full selection of disposable and reusable on our Black Plastic Glasses themed page.

Product Focus: Plastic Champagne Flutes

A very popular range we have here at Inn Supplies is our Plastic Champagne Flutes which are available in both the ‘Reusable Bar Supplies’ and ‘Disposable Glasses’ category. They come in 5 different main styles that cater for all kinds of occasions.

Our disposable champagne flutes can either come in a ‘tulip’ or ‘coupe’ style shape. The excellent quality of our flutes are designed to suit any occasion including all types of formal parties and events.

The tall and thin appearance of the ‘Tulip Champagne Flute’ is iconic, instantly bringing sophistication and class to mind. The shape of the glass creates carbonation, causing the bubbles to cluster then quickly disperse upwards giving the champagne more intensity and a look of elegance to complement any soiree or event. Our plastic clear Champagne flutes are injection moulded in virgin food-grade crystal styrene, which gives extra rigidity and perfect clarity. Unlike many other plastic champagne flutes our ‘tulip’ flutes come in a single piece and don’t need to be fitted together. We also stock this product in black, which exhibits a premium glossy appearance.

Before the ‘tulip’ shape became popular, the ‘coupe’ was the glass of choice for drinking Champagne. This ‘saucer’ shaped glass was particularly prominent in the prohibition-era of the 1930’s and then again in the 1960’s. TV shows like “Boardwalk Empire” and “Mad Men” have caused this vintage drinking glass to make a serious comeback, as you will now find them being used to serve cocktails in any trendy bar in London. In comparison to the ‘tulip’ shape, the ‘coupe’ generates less bubbles which gives less fizz to the champagne.

When a stronger better quality flute is needed we also stock reusable champagne glasses. We have two different types of reusable glasses: Elite (Polycarbonate) and Excel (SAN) items.

Our Elite Polycarbonate plastic flutes look and feel almost exactly the same as their glassware counterpart but are virtually unbreakable. Their extra durability makes them perfect for barware at parties and events because the risk of glass being broken is eradicated. This glass is also available in black, with a lovely glossy finish. Our cheaper SAN reusable champagne glasses are almost identical to the polycarbonate ones, but are not quite as strong.

Serving Up Soups From Around The World

Whether it is Mexican Tortilla Soup, New England Seafood Chowder or Japanese Soba Noodle Soup soup containers123- delicious soups from around the world are gaining more popularity in food outlets and eateries around the UK.

Light and healthy international soups featuring on menus across the country now boast high consumer demand that previously only enticed an Ethnic palate. They are high in nutritious value and can be tailored with different ingredients to suit different taste palates and diet plans. For vendors they provide great profit margins and a unique opportunity to use other surplus ingredients.

Since the recent surge of successful Chinatown-style noodle shops and street food vendors in many of the big cities around the world, noodle soup is making a huge comeback onto menus. Its recent popularity and ease of preparation has meant many food outlets have launched their own interpretations of this great cuisine, experimenting with different types of noodles and toppings.

Because Asian noodle soups are cheap and filling, they have become extremely popular among college and University students.  Many food outlets are taking advantage of this by serving low-calorie nutritional soups packed with lots of vegetables, grains and lean protein.

The versatility of soup means you can accommodate for most customers nutritional requirements by offering vegetarian, dairy-free, gluten-free and low-fat options. Noodle soups complement lunch menus nicely and can be used for combo deals with other items such as sandwiches and salads.

Some great ways to advertise soup dishes include rotating the soup specials and offering DIY Asian noodle soups where you start with well flavoured stock and noodles, and customers are able to ‘build’ their own noodle soup with a range of delicious add-ons.

Check out our range of soup cups and containers, they are compostable and biogragable and are perfect to serve up all types of soups. They are microwave and freezer friendly and have great insulating properties to keep the soup nice and hot.

They come in three sizes: Small (8oz), Medium (12oz) and Large (16oz).

We also stock thick heavy-duty soup cups made from 350gsm paperboard. These excellent multi-purpose cups are ideal for both hot and cold food contents. The thick side walls will not only insulate the contained liquid effectively but the glossy finish on the outside of the cup will give your hands extra protection.

For our heavy-duty line we stock two types of lids: a paper vented lid and a tight-fitting plastic lid, which are also safe for both the freezer and microwave. They come in 5 sizes ranging from small to very large:

Small (8oz), Medium (12oz), Large (16oz), Extra Large (26oz), XXL (32oz).

Fair Trade and Quality Sustainable Coffee

IMG_8338The quality of sustainable products coming from companies claiming to be socially conscious should always be questioned. How does a product, so fixated on achieving a mission statement look and taste so great?

The truth is, sustainability is consistently linked with quality goods. Fair Trade has grown to be a vital platform to improve the quality of crops and help farmers build strong relationships with good distributors. Executing sustainable practices with flourishing farmers is the key to producing the delicious cups of coffee we are so familiar with.

Fair Trade has become crucial for the long term production of coffee in the developing world. It is the only initiative that protects against plummeting prices by requiring companies to pay sustainable prices that must never fall below the market price. This allows farmers to have access to important resources and gives them financial stability to invest in quality. Fair Trade also acts like an insurance policy and allows farmers to access credit, which shouldn’t be taken for granted in small sized agriculture.

Fair Trade is an incentive for responsible farmers to build dynamic businesses and work together with their communities. It doesn’t claim to solve all of the world’s troubles but it is significantly reducing the problems associated with poverty and is causing a tangible change.

Farmers need certain resources to adapt to the ever increasing economic and environmental threats that are emerging. This is crucial if we want farmers overseas to continue producing quality products that the western world demands. That’s why partnerships within the industry are so important for both manufacture and distributor. Fair Trade helps build these relationships and gets funds directly to the farmers who need them the most.

Since Fair Trade started more than 50 years ago, it has come a long way with growing numbers of farmers, roasters, traders, retailers and consumers who believe in the same thing: that supporting struggling farmers and their infrastructure is crucial for the future of quality coffee.

Kick-starting Summer with Smoothies

Smoothie-Group-Shot-webAs summer is quickly approaching and people are looking to kick-start their diet plans, smoothies are an option that must be considered. This blended beverage offers lots of nutrition as well as protein and fibre to help you stay full until your next meal. A smoothie in the morning will help your metabolism get going for the day to come.

Smoothies are great for losing weight, due to the straightforward nature of being able to control exactly what ingredients are being used and consumed. With little effort you are able to quickly grasp good flavour combinations and create low-calorie and delicious beverages, that will fill you and your customers up for hours.

By putting together the right ingredients, you can quickly create beautifully tasting smoothies that will help you lose weight in the long term.

The reason why smoothies are so effective for weight loss is because they contain so many crucial nutrients in one serving, without having to consume any empty calories. After learning what a well-balanced smoothie consists of, you will be able to get the right balance of vitamins, healthy fats, complex carbohydrates and protein.

Knowing what key ingredients to use allows you to increase the nutritional value of your smoothie without adding any extra calories. You can specifically tailor your smoothie to boost energy levels and metabolic rate which will help you with your weight loss efforts.

Smoothies used in diet plans have risen in popularity over the last couple of years and should be used in conjunction with other regular healthy meal plans. Replacing a smoothie for another meal every so often is perfectly fine, but shouldn’t become a regular habit.

Our range of plastic smoothie cups can be used to serve juice drinks, smoothies or milkshakes and are available with domed or straw slot lids. Our sizes range from 8oz-20oz and are commonly broken down into the following sizes amongst retailers:

Small – 8oz/10oz,

Medium – 12oz/15oz

Large – 20oz

Our smoothie cups are of superb quality and are made from Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), a transparent plastic with high clarity.
