Biopac will be launching new Take Home Boxes at Lunch!, branded 'Too Good To Waste', designed to help cafes and restaurants reduce their food waste by encouraging diners to take their leftovers home to enjoy later.

The boxes which are an advance on the "doggy bag" are made from wood pulp that is produced from sustainable forests in Europe and coated with a compostable material to render them leak proof. We are also including a bag in this range which can be used as a carrier for the box; both branded with 'Too Good To Waste'. Functional and sustainable, they can be fully composted when they've reached their end of life, so very kind to the environment.

The Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA), who are actively supporting this product range, has quoted an average restaurant throws out 21 tonnes of food a year and that embarrassment is the main reason more diners don’t ask to take food home. About a third of that waste is swept directly from diners’ plates into the bin.

Mark Brigden, Technical Director at Biopac, said: “We are excited to be launching this new product range at Lunch! and proud to offer a solution to address the food waste problem. With our new range of 'Too Good To Waste' products, restaurants can now encourage diners to take their leftovers home to enjoy later, and at the same time help to reduce the amount of food that is wasted.”

The new range will be on display at the Lunch! Show, 23-24 September, Business Design Centre, London - Stand M543.
