Plastics to be Largely Used by Companies in Developing Foodservice Disposables

Compared to paper, paperboard and aluminum, plastics is likely to emerge as one of the highly preferred raw material for foodservice disposables. Manufacturers of foodservice disposables are focusing on using recyclable plastics. Also, the government of different countries are introducing stringent regulations on using plastic as it is not eco-friendly and take a very long time to decompose, thereby harming the environment.

Research and development activities are also being undertaken by the companies to come up with a material for producing foodservice disposables that can be recycled and used again.
