We’ve stocked a range of plastic food containers in various sizes for many years – these convenient contains have a tight push fit lid and can be used with a huge range of different foods. These are made from heavy duty PP (Polypropylene).
New in this week is a biodegradable version of these containers, instead made from completely biodegradable PLA (Polylactic Acid) – a cornstarch based product. These will break down naturally unlike traditional plastics.
Biodegradability had become something of a hot topic over the past 2 years with more and more customers either wanting to switch to biodegradable items, or needing to use them as part of a council / company mandate. Most of our range has a biodegradable alternative available as part of our push to be an environmentally conscious supplier of disposable products. We can also advise on the most carbon neutral way to use / dispose of our items, be it composting or recycling.
We’ve launched this new PLA Biodegradable container range in most popular sizes to cover the majority of normal uses, be it salads, sides, curry or simply food storage. The following sizes are available:
Please note that these have a very slightly different rim diameter to the non-biodegradable version of the containers, as such you must ensure you purchase the correct biodegradable PLA lid to match the containers.
Based on customer feedback we’ve re-sourced our popular range of Deli Containers and introduced several new additional sizes. Our previous Deli Containers were made from PVC plastic; although this allowed for high levels of transparency it did mean that you couldn’t put hot foods or liquid in the pots. Our new range of containers (called Dispolite) are made from tough and durable Polypropylene (the same material as our ever-popular Katerglass product) – this makes them very resistant to splitting.
Because these containers are made from PP, they’re also completely safe when used in the Microwave or Fridge. Our previous deli containers were not designed with extreme temperatures in mind; however our new plastic containers will not deform, split or melt – even with boiling soup!
The plastic will not react with fats or oils, even when subjected to high temperatures; this makes them a fantastic choice for use in takeaway establishments. Although we expect uses of this range to be extremely diverse, the most popular use will be salads, side dishes and fruit portions. We also stock a tight sealing lid to keep the contents fresh.
Please note that this range takes a new size of lid, our previous 101mm lids will not fit this new range, this was necessary to fit the wider range of sizes. You will find the following sizes available:
8oz / 240ml
12oz / 360ml
16oz / 480ml
24oz / 700ml
32oz / 1000ml
A common comment regarding our PVC deli pots was that the box of 2,000 was too large – both physically and in terms of quantity. Our Dispolite containers all come packed in the same case configuration. One case containers 500 containers; this is made up of 10 sleeves with 50 containers per sleeve. This should ease storage and handling requirements for retail establishments in addition to helping with procurement.
These should be suitable for most takeaway applications – please get in touch with our sales team on 0844 4995456 if you require any further information. Samples are available on request.
