Berry Global has unveiled its Reusable Tableware Range, a new line of reusable plastic products designed to meet the sustainability demands of the foodservice industry.

This initiative comes in response to increasing legislative and customer pressures for more sustainable packaging solutions.

Notably, the Anti-Waste Law for Circular Economy in France mandates that restaurants and similar establishments with seating for more than 20 guests must offer reusable tableware. 

Josef Björck, VP of Food Service at Berry Superfos, emphasised the company’s commitment to sustainability, stating: “We are committed to helping our customers meet the growing sustainability demands of today and tomorrow by designing and developing innovative, reusable plastic products like this game-changing reusable tableware product family that helps accelerate the shift to a truly circular economy.

“Our new reusable tableware range will help minimise waste and reduce the use of virgin resources while offering functionality, durability, and legislative compliance.” 

The new range of bowls and lids is designed to meet the diverse needs of the foodservice industry while prioritising easy reuse and convenience.

Transparent lids allow for attractive displays of various foods while in-mould labelling enables branding and decoration.

The bowls and lids support efficient transportation, storage, and on-site operations with inside stacking ribs and an easy-to-handle design. Additionally, the lids double as plates, offering maximum flexibility.

Manufactured using high-quality polypropylene (PP), the bowls are safe for food contact and easy to recycle.

Their sturdy construction provides the durability required for an optimal number of wash cycles in an industrial dishwasher, allowing for easy cleaning and high hygiene standards.

A matte outside surface structure allows the bowls to resist scratches, and a hygienic smooth inside surface minimises the risk of bacteria growth.

The tableware range is part of a take-back-infrastructure programme that allows customers to bring leftover food or takeaway meals home and later return the bowl and lid to the point of purchase for sanitisation and reuse.

Each bowl offers space for a QR code, barcode, Digimarc, or an RFID chip with a unique code for inventory management and tracking of reuse cycles.

“The smart design of our Reusable Tableware Range has redefined the way restaurant food is served, enjoyed, and packaged, providing foodservice professionals with practical and efficient choices for all their needs,” Björck added.
