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, that the food industry is being socially responsible and the mission of being environmentally friendly is on track.
