KALAMAZOO, Mich., October 1, 2008 – Fabri-Kal, a leading provider of disposable foodservice packaging, has launched availability of its Greenware® portion cup stock print and custom print programs.
Greenware portion cups are now available in the same attractive design as the popular Greenware stock printed drink cup program. Imprinted with green stylized rolling fields and a statement about the product’s plant-based origin, stock printed Greenware portion cups help foodservice operators promote their environmental leadership. The stock print is available with traditional print minimums and is available on the full line of Greenware portion cups in 2-, 3-, and 4-oz. sizes.
Operators now also have the opportunity to print their own custom design on the full line of Greenware portion cups. Greenware portion cups can be custom-printed in up to four colors and order minimums vary from 180 to 243 cases.
Fabri-Kal’s Greenware products are made from NatureWorks® biopolymer, a polylactic acid (PLA) resin derived entirely from plants instead of oil. The products are created from domestically-grown plants and are manufactured in the U.S.A. Made entirely from natural and renewable resources, Greenware products are a stylish and sustainable solution in foodservice packaging.
Greenware portion cups are crystal clear and offer complete product visibility to make all food products look their best. Made from a durable, robust material, the cups are unsusceptible to flavor or odor transfer. The portion cups’ smooth rolled rims provide a leak-resistant snap-fit lid application and removal.
Greenware portion and cold drink cups are ideal for serving fresh foods and beverages in applications up to 105 Fahrenheit and when protected from direct sunlight. Greenware products are certified by the Biodegradable Plastics Institute (BPI) to meet international standard ASTM 6400 for compostability in actively managed municipal or industrial facilities, where they are available.
Fabri-Kal is one of the largest converters of NatureWorks biopolymer in the foodservice industry. Greenware products support Fabri-Kal’s mission to create products in an environmentally responsible manner.
