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.

Takeaway food boxes: new biodegradable products

Group Shot_2Regular readers may have noticed a trend with most of the new products we’ve launched this year; they’ve all been biodegradable environmentally friendly alternatives to popular existing products. Today’s product update is no exception! We’ve got an extensive range of disposable takeaway food boxes; these are available as a few main varieties:

  • White folding food boxes (no1 – no8)
  • Brown kraft folding food boxes (no1 – no8)
  • Round smart serve noodle boxes (16oz – 32oz)
  • Square folding noodle boxes (16oz – 32oz)

We’ve just taken delivery of biodegradable versions of the 16oz and 26oz round noodle boxes, as well as the 26oz square folding noodle boxes. These are the most popular items from the takeaway noodle box range so it made sense to offer a biodegradable alternative for businesses looking to switch to biodegradable stock.

Similar to the rest of our range, the main difference with this range is that the polyethylene plastic lining is replaced with a PLA cornstarch based lining. This means that the lining will break down naturally, unlike items with a plastic-based lining.

To clearly identify these items as a biodegradable product they carry our green stripe branding, the items themselves are natural unbleached kraft paper.
