Top 5 options for afternoon tea

by Nick Geeson October 01, 2020

Lets Explore!!!! 

For our customers, it feels like a good time to offer some suggestions on products that we consider to be ideal, based on the trends forced upon the food service sector as a consequence of Covid-19. 

As we progress through 2020, the challenges we all face in delivering a service, is encouraging us all to think outside the box. The demand put upon all businesses to prove their agility is not only a task in itself... but delivering solutions suitable for consumers is something we are all faced with (on a business level), every day.  

Today we'll be focussing on our top five options for afternoon tea.


Sturdy Bagasse Plates

An ideal compostable solution constructed from bagasse, which is a dry, pulpy, fibrous residue that remains after sugarcane is crushed. A fitting disposable alternative for catering stands and restaurants offering outdoor services as an extension of their current trade. They're also great for a get-together at home. In a world where disposables are really proving their worth, these plates are a step towards better hygiene and avoidance of cross contamination, whilst using eco-friendly packaging. We offer these plates in 7”, 9” and 12” diameter.

Cutlery

We offer two variations of compostable cutlery in wooden and CPLA form. Again, ideal for any business looking to encourage better hygiene. Whether it’s a tough and crispy jacket potato or a slice of chocolate cake, both forms of cutlery are strong and durable. We also offer colourful PLA ice cream spoons.

Platter Boxes

When considering afternoon tea, our forever popular grazing boxes really tick all the 'boxes'. Made from kraft board, we offer these in 3 different sizes; small size = 225x155x82mm; regular size = 310x225x82mm; large size = 450x310x82mm. With our robust dividing trays, it makes for a perfect way to present a myriad of different favourites associated with your afternoon tea. These are an ideal packet-filler, whether it be sandwiches, cakes, salads, dips and sauces; these really are the perfect product for a group event.

Portion Pots

These portions pots are ideal for sauces and dressings at picnics and/or BBQ's. Perhaps a simple solution for a bit of fruit/veg in a child's packed lunch? They also work perfectly as an add-on to our platter boxes. Made from PLA, these are fully compostable and range from 1oz, 2oz, 3oz and 4oz options. Take a look.

Single Wall Paper Cups

Our PLA lined cups are ideal for a fun, colourful and vibrant event. All food needs a drink to wash it down and these paper cups offer a sensitive, compostable alternative. Great for cold drinks and smoothies, we offer these cups in 12oz, 16oz and 22oz. If required, you can also access our clear PLA flat and domed lids on the link provided... for the ”spillers” of the group.

As Summer comes to a close and Autumn and Winter draws in, we know you are all considering presentative options for up and coming events, but first and foremost, it’s imperative we stay safe. However, there are ways we can come together, take all the necessary precautions... and consider our waste at the same time.

We hope we can inspire some options towards these goals.
