The Benefits of Disposable Tableware

June 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 275

When catering for a large event, be it a birthday, anniversary, wedding, business conference or anything else, the use of disposable tableware often makes great sense. There are many benefits of this, from the convenience they offer to the affordability of the products.

Traditionally, disposable tableware was quite limited in its range but today, there is a great and varied range of styles and materials to choose from. Due to this, catering disposables are a basic essential for professionals operating in the hotel and catering profession.

The most obvious benefit to having catering disposables is that it makes the tidy down much easier. There are no plates, dishes, cups and glasses to be washed. Simply sweeping everything into the rubbish is all that is needed, allowing the rest of the cleaning operation to take place quickly and effectively.

The cost of disposable tableware is also ideal for large scale events, when numerous platters, plates and so forth are needed. With sensible pricing, the UK's leading catering suppliers understand that companies need to save costs wherever they can. With no risk of damages or breakages to have to worry about and pay for too, there is also much to be said for the stress saved.

There are many materials that disposables come in today, each of which has its own particular use and benefits. Commonly, aluminium, foam and paper are used, but this range has been significantly extended over the years to now include environmentally friendly packaging and PET formed products, which are ideal for when a little more style and presentation is required.

Aluminium is the perfect material for platters to display food cleanly, professionally and with a touch of class. Foam is a commonly used material for plates and bowls, providing a product which has a great resilience to heat, a sturdy feel and is available in both laminated and non-laminated designs.

Paper disposable tableware is used across all areas for event catering, from the simple plates and cups, to napkins and table covers. The plates and dishes are perfect when catering for a younger crowd or when budgets are very tight, while the table covers and napkins can be scaled up to present a touch of luxury and be found to match most colours used in other areas of the event.

For a real touch of distinction, PET materials are arguably the perfect choice. These products are able to incorporate designs which replicate the look of china and marble. Ideal for use as central serving platters or as individual guest plates and dishes, they make perfect sense at trade conferences, workshops and for meetings with internal or external clients.

Another choice for disposable tableware which many companies make these days are those products which offer a greener, more environmentally friendly approach. Using disposable cups, plates and bowls, made from biodegradable and compostable moulded fibres and paper products, are the perfect choice.

With such an extensive choice of disposables, from tableware and containers, to cutlery and containers, there is something to suit any need. Working with the best catering equipment suppliers allows professionals to concentrate on what they do best - the food.
