THE CHALLENGE: The food industry is challenging themselves to be more environmentally friendly. While on the west coast, polystyrene has been banned from many coastal communities in order to clean-up the beaches and save the wildlife who have suffered the consequences from plastic containers, straws and six-pack plastic ring packaging.
THE RESULT: Biodegradable tableware is a desired container for the food and beverage industry. As restauranteurs move away from plastics, they desire pulp containers to hold soups, salads, take-out items as well as unfinished portions from meals served. There are certainly many pulp containers to choose from, however, MPE stands out with a laminated container that can stand cold and hot temperatures, hold liquid without leaking out and is biodegradable and compostable. With a natural color, smooth laminated surface and the power to hold liquids, warm and cold, this is the “Superhero” of the molded pulp containers.
THE SOLUTION: A container that is biodegradable, compostable and efficient. Consumers are happy, especially the millennials, the food industry is being socially responsible and the mission of being environmentally friendly is on track.
