craving for sweetness has a positive side effect: the sugar cane juicing process produces large
quantities of residual fibres, bagasse.
Sugar cane is the future as one of the most economically important plants in the world. It is
grown in Brazil, China and India and more and more plantations in Africa and Thailand. Sugar
cane is a strong crop, can tolerate some drought and offers strong resistance to diseases. After
harvesting (at least 3 times a year) the stem is cut just above the ground. The
plant then continues to grow and must only be replaced after 10 years. This harvesting method is
therefore also environmentally friendly and sustainable.
The harvested sugar cane is processed in a sugar factory by squeezing the juice. The remaining stem residues, bagasse, were historically simply burned on the field and this caused pollution.
This biomass is now recovered to make stylish sugar cane plates, trays and bowls. Sugar cane disposables are offered in 2 colours: white and natural (unbleached). Tableware made from sugar cane is lightweigt, yet very robust. It is suitable for cold and hot meals and can be used in microwave, oven and freezer.
An optional bio-lamination, as applied in our range of sealable menu trays, provides an even more effective grease and water barrier. This makes it possible for ready meals to be packaged in our menu trays for several days.
