You can’t recycle food with plastic in it, and you can’t recycle plastic with food on it. This is the key idea at the heart of Edinburgh-based Vegware, the global specialist in plant-based compostable foodservice packaging. Our catering disposables are made from plants, not plastic. Our products are sustainably sourced using renewable, lower carbon or recycled materials. Vegware’s range of more than 300 eco-friendly catering disposables includes cutlery, hot and cold cups, tableware, and takeaway packaging. We’ve won 70 awards for sustainability and innovation, including twice winning the Queen’s Award for Enterprise. We are known for our commitment to quality. Our practical and stylish packaging helps customers’ food look good, so they can sell more.

The service is available in Scotland, Bristol, Gloucester and Worcester, with further expansion in development.
