Berry launches reusable tableware range for the food service industry
publié le vendredi 02 février 2024
Berry Global has launched its reusable tableware range, specifically tailored to meet the foodservice industry’s demand for sustainable packaging solutions.
In France, Anti-Waste Law for Circular Economy law (AGEC) mandates that restaurants and other establishments with seating for more than 20 guests must offer reusable tableware.
The new range of bowls and lids has been designed to meet the diverse needs of the foodservice industry while prioritising easy reuse and convenience. Transparent lids allow attractive displays of all types of foods from full meals and fresh salads to delicious snacks and desserts. The availability of In-Mould Labelling enables both bowls and lids to be used for branding and decorated with the visual identity of individual food providers.
For example, each bowl offers space for a QR code, barcode, Digimarc or an RFID chip with a unique code, enabling effortless implementation of return deposit systems and refill systems, wash cycles tracking and inventory management of the reusable bowls and lids. An RFID chip can also be embedded into each lid.
The bowls are manufactured in PP, a high-quality plastic material that is not only safe for food contact but also easy to recycle. Their sturdy construction ensures long-term durability, with a matt outside surface structure that resists scratches, and a hygienic smooth inside surface which minimises the risk of bacteria growth.
The range is fully washable in industrial dishwashers for easy cleaning to maintain high hygiene standards. Berry has optimised the dish washer cycle of the range to enable the individual restaurant to save energy, water and time. The stackable design with inside stacking ribs simplifies storage and transportation and optimises space utilisation.
