The environmental compatibility of one's lifestyle plays an increasingly important role for many people. And this is also reflected in the catering industry: reusable transport containers for food and beverages have become a real pull factor for the environmentally conscious catering clientele. After all, they score points with a long life cycle and low resource input. Even disposable products can make a positive impression on your guests, as long as they are made of environmentally friendly materials. Whether reusable or disposable, a focus on sustainability ensures that your guests identify more strongly with your brand, make friends and are happy to return.
