Wilkes Catering Supplies confirms commitment to environment sustainability with the introduction of earth friendly Cornware products.
The Wilkes Group is committed to ethical product sourcing and we aim to partner eco-friendly, sustainable manufacturers and suppliers wherever possible. Our latest partnership is with Cornware, manufactures of 100% biodegradable and recyclable tableware, food packaging and catering disposables.
Established in 2007, Cornware set out to address the growing concerns of climate change and promote environmental sustainability and eco-friendly consumer habits. In response to their concerns they developed an earth friendly range of catering consumables including plates, cutlery, cups, food packaging, trays and bags.
Traditionally manufactured in plastic, Cornware products are made primarily from non-GMO corn. Unlike their plastic counterparts, cornware products decompose in the presence of microorganisms such as algae, bacteria and fungi. In addition to this, their products are 100% recyclable.
Other benefits of Cornware products include:
Almost Carbon Neutral – The range is up to 68% carbon-neutral when incinerated, reducing the amount of greenhouse gases significantly.
Non-toxic – The products are toxic free and don’t transfer harmful substances into food even at high temperatures. No toxic gasses are emitted during decomposition or recycling
Microwaveable & Freezable – All the products can withstand temperatures of -20°C to 120°C.
Durable – The products are strong, durable and oil, water and acid resistant.
Affordable – The range is competitively priced compared to other biodegradable and plastic tableware products.
Reusable – Each product can be used up to 3 times.
Available in a rainbow of vibrant, fashionable colours, their range offers a whole new world of stylish, thoughtful food packaging and catering disposable options. In addition, Wilkes Catering Supplies can customise the Cornware range with artwork and logos to provide brand consistent products.
