Quality disposables manufacturer and supplier, Herald has pledged to focus on the expansion of its greener product lines.
Herald has been building a reputation as a supplier of quality, eco-friendly disposables in recent years however it is now further raising its game by committing to the expansion of its sustainable product range across the board in 2023.
The popular catering supplier has identified that most of its customers want more choice when it comes to eco-friendly goods. There is also a definite appeal to be able to source all sustainable products from the same supplier.
Herald’s national marketing manager, David Martin comments: “We have a national standing as a supplier that provides a wide range of choice and we need to make sure that this identity is apparent to all of our customers, particularly when it comes to greener products as sustainability remains a key concern. It’s our job to promote and encourage eco-friendly choices and we do that best by making sure there is a strong selection across all ranges.”
Supported by a 35-year history of identifying where the value lies for its customers and delivering without sacrificing quality, Herald is in constant talks with suppliers to review and expand its product offering. The company currently has a popular eco range, which includes a choice of compostable cups and bagasse items comprising of square, round and rectangle plates, in varying sizes, along with bowls and hot boxes, chip trays, burger boxes, noodle boxes and other lunch boxes. It also has a complete selection of wooden and cornstarch cutlery, including individually wrapped items and meal packs.
David adds: “Most consumers are eco-conscious so it makes sense that caterers are sourcing disposable plates, cutlery, cups and lunch boxes that qualify as sustainable. The expectation of the end-user should impact on any disposables selection. Added to that, the changes in the law regarding plastic, and the consistently strong media messaging, and sustainable goods are fast becoming the only feasible course of action when it comes to sourcing disposables.
“As a supplier, we need to make sure the choice is as varied as possible and affordable – and we’re committed to expanding our product offering to ensure this is the case.”
