Disposable canteen supplies for reopening UK schools

It has been announced that schools and colleges are to reopen in September, as Covid-19 infection rates continue to fall.

We have therefore received many queries from school staff who wish to increase safety in school as they open the doors once again.

A disposable lunch

School kitchens will reopen from the start of the autumn term and have been advised by the government to comply with the covid-19 guidance for food businesses.

Here at Inn Supplies, we have seen an increasing demand by schools for disposable food boxes. Used once and recycled, there is no need to handle the box after use and no need to clean.

We are able to supply a variety of boxes suitable for hot and cold food with compostable and biodegradable options also available.

Kitchen cutlery is also being exchanged for disposable cutlery to ensure surfaces are not touched unnecessarily.

Catch it, bin it, kill it

The government has also advised schools to ensure they have a good supply of disposable tissues to implement the ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ approach in each classroom and have enough to top up regularly.

What is PLA?

PLA (PolyLactic Acid) is a sustainable and renewable plant based material; fully biodegradable and compostable.

The sporks have been tested up to 85 degrees Celsius and feature an attractive satin finish. This also sets them apart from the more common plastic varieties.
