More and more countries are recognizing the damage and problems associated with plastic straws and marine environments. This means there is a substantial market for paper straws. Paper straws, unlike their plastic counterparts, do not have heavy metals or other potential toxins. The paper straws are environmentally friendly, compost well and are easily branded for a private label.
Best of all, there is a certain savoir-faire behind a paper straw. Adults love them for drinks and cocktails, and children love the colors and shapes of the straws – conveniently able to double as party decorations.
It should go without saying, but Sourcing Nova only sources the best paper straws from the best factories and industry leaders in China. The products our manufacturing partners make have a strong aesthetic design and strict manufacturing process. The result is a high quality product again and again.
All straws are made with food grade raw materials – including consumable soybean ink, food grade adhesive and 100 percent FSC food grade paper. All materials have a material safety data sheet and do not have any fluorochemicals or gluten. All of the paper straw manufacturers are FDA, ISO9001, BSCI, FSC, CE, LFGB and BRC certified and laboratory tested to be BPA free.
All straws are guaranteed appropriate for direct food contact. All straws are sturdy and durable for both hot and cold beverages. This means the straws will keep their shape even after resting in a drink for an extended time.
Those interested in a catering supply business will need paper boxes for food. Sourcing Nova’s manufacturing partners are the leading food packaging manufacturers in China. They provide OEM and ODM services for 35 of the world’s leading food brands. Our manufacturer provides paper boxes for restaurants like KFC, McDonald’s and Starbucks. Most of the food-grade paper boxes are microwaveable. The exception is PE-coated boxes.
Paper bowls and cups are for soups, drinks and ice cream. Most paper bowls will have a PE film on the inner wall. This is necessary for waterproofing and oil leakage prevention. The bowls and cups are safe for hot beverages but not for the microwave and air fryer. High temperatures will cause the PE films to decompoise and dissolve into the food. This could lead to sickness on the part of the consumer.
Sugarcane and sugar production is a very big industry, and certain byproducts of the sugaring process can be made into tableware. Sugarcane bagasse tableware is a fully biodegradable eco product. Sugarcane bagasse is naturally non-toxic, but it is important to note not all sugarcane bagasse products are safe. The safety depends on the manufacturing process and customer order requirements. Some manufacturers have molded fiber tableware with fluorine content, necessary for oil resistance. If you are looking for sugarcane bagasse tableware that needs only water resistance, the tableware can be fluorine-free and safe for people.
Sourcing Nova’s manufacturing partner has the following certifications: FDA 176.170, EC 1907/2006 REACH, CoE Resolution AP(2002)1, 2011/65/EU ROHS, OK compost HOME and Pesticide Residue GB19648. Europe and the U.S. can sell sugarcane bagasse tableware without issue.
Brown paper bags are a great alternative to plastic bags, especially for restaurants and grocery stores. The kraft paper bags we source are food grade and can be used for direct food contact. The paper bag manufacturers we choose are the suppliers of many famous catering companies in the world, they provide kraft paper packaging bags for Starbucks, KFC and McDonald's. If needed, you can custom paper bags with your logo.
The food packaging material industry is highly rigorous with individual countries having different safety standards. It is important to note these standards are reviewed and updated from time to time. This is key information. Smaller factories lack the ability to keep up with the necessary safety standards in international news channels. Their food packaging materials may not meet the newest standards of your origin country and will be rejected at the customs port. Consider cheap paper straws. Poorly constructed straws may get soggy, leave a paper taste in the mouth and result in an overall negative experience for the customer.
