Duni introduces new compostable and secure-fitting bagasse lids for Octabagasse take-away box concept

May 14, 2019 - 05:50

MALMO, Sweden, April 29, 2019 (Press Release) -The compostable, secure-fitting new bagasse lids enable managers to offer a completely plastic-free service solution.

Sustainable design, secure fitting

Duni’s launch of the opaque bagasse lids comes at a time when many owners of take-away businesses are seeking to reduce their plastic consumption. The EU rules on single-use plastics and customer concern over plastic pollution are accelerating this trend.

Wings are integrated into the new bagasse lids, which ensures they shut very securely with a haptic click. Advantageous for both customers and staff, this design feature ensures easier preparation and transport, and therefore a better all-round meal experience.

Customisable and eco-conscious

Biobased bagasse is used for the distinctive, octagonal bases and lids. Robust and elegant, this upcycled material is made from the fibres that remain after sugarcane stalks are crushed for their juice. It is suitable for industrial composting and has a low carbon footprint.

Duni offers a customisation service, which enables professionals to underline that they are using eco-focused material-and thereby build their brand. Notably, they can provide personalised stickers and sleeves.

Freedom of choice

For take-away meals that work best with a transparent lid, Duni also offers an rPET lid made from 100% recycled plastic. This gives managers who opt for the Octabagasse take-away box concept the freedom to choose the optimal lid solution for their concept and menu.

Melanie Jäger, Int. Senior Marketing Manager Meal Service, Duni: “Our customers asked for a plastic-free solution for the ecoecho® Octabagasse concept and we are delighted to provide it. The lid seamlessly matches the bases and cleverly integrates wings, making it is pleasure to use for managers and customers.”
