Herald expands biodegradable range for 2020 

Disposables manufacturer and supplier, Herald is stocking up on biodegradables for 2020 as demand continues for a greener, disposable offering across its UK customer base.

Providing as full a selection as possible, Herald is offering a range of sizes in its double wall hot paper cups, including 8 oz, 12 oz and 16 oz sizes. The biodegradable selection is brown, while there are other double wall paper options (cups and soup containers) in brown and black.

The company is also expanding its bagasse range to include chip trays, burger boxes, noodle boxes and square, round and rectangle plates, in varying sizes.

Herald has aimed to stay ahead of the trend for environmentally friendly and alternative products over the last few years, appealing directly to the vending market, where demand is growing.

Its green solutions also include natural birchwood cutlery, stirrers and skewers and a corn starch cutlery range – which looks and feels like plastic but is natural and completely biodegradable.

Managing director of Herald, Yogesh Patel comments: “Our primary concern is to offer our customers affordable quality, providing the greatest variety and ensuring a full range of green options, including biodegradable products.

“The market is changing and, although it is still very much price driven, many catering, vending and food to go concerns have to consider credible eco-friendly disposable offerings to meet their own customer demand.”
