Many of our customers are surprised to learn that we carry food service disposable items. Customers assume we only stock cleaning and janitorial products, but we're more diverse than that. We supply a wide variety of disposable plates, cups, utensils, and food service packaging items. Disposable food service products can be manufactured from a number of different materials, each with its own benefits.
Below is a list of the most popular materials.
Paper, Paperboard, and Corrugated Fiberboard: cups, plates, bowls, napkins, and tray liners; can be coated (usually with plastic or wax) to improve strength, grease resistance and prevent leakage.
Plastics: cups, plates, bowls, trays, utensils, containers and wraps; lightweight and holds temperature of both hot and cold beverages and food.
Polystyrene: otherwise known as Styrofoam or foam; cups, plates, bowls, trays, utensils, containers and wraps; lightweight and holds temperature of both hot and cold beverages and food; can be harder to eat on as it can be easily cut into.
Aluminum: Foils, wraps, trays, bags, and containers; holds temperature; moisture and grease resistant.
Food service disposable products are not only a convenient and cost effective alternative to multiuse washable products, they also help prevent foodbourne diseases because they are used only once. If you use food service disposable products in the workplace, you might want to consider going with a local supplier like Martin County Janitorial Supply.
