As the leading wholesale vendor of restaurant and foodservice packaging supplies, Servous offers a range of different products and solutions. All of our products are designed with materials and safe food packaging concepts that either meet or exceed requirements by the Food and Drug Administration. Let’s take a closer look at some of the most common food packaging materials used in our products.
Bagasse Food Packaging Supplies
Bagasse is the remaining fibers that are left from the processing of sugarcane into sugar. This extremely abundant and renewable resource is then molded into produce trays, meat trays, and other food packaging solutions.
The tough and durable sugarcane fibers result in ultra-reliable food packaging products. Best of all, Bagasse is chemical-free, toxin-free, 100% compostable, 100% biodegradable, and 100% recyclable.

Cornstarch-Based Food Packaging Supplies
Cornstarch food packaging is another renewable solution that is growing in use across the industry. Products made from cornstarch carry the consistency of plastic, which makes it extremely valuable. Unlike plastic, cornstarch food packaging is chemical-free, toxin-free, 100% compostable, 100% biodegradable, and 100% recyclable.

Compostable Packaging Solutions
Compostable packaging is a class of products and solutions that will decompose into nutrient-rich soil over a certain period of time. To be truly compostable, all of the materials should break down into organic fertilizer in periods ranging from 30 up to 180 days. There are two classes of compostable packaging: home compost and industrial compost.

Biodegradable Packaging Solutions
Biodegradable packaging refers to materials that will break down and return to nature — usually within a year or less. These packaging materials must decompose into elements that are natural and safe for the environment. This helps minimize the buildup of trash in landfills, which leads to a healthier, cleaner environment.

Most of the solutions and products we offer fall into the category of not-for-resale supplies. These packaging solutions and products are necessary for your business and customer satisfaction. Whether it’s mandatory supplies for food preparation and service or paper bags for customers in a retail environment, Servous will meet your needs and exceed your expectations for not-for-resale packaging solutions.

Single-Use Plastic Products and Supplies
As the name implies, single-use plastic products are those designed to be used one time and properly discarded. Commonly referred to as disposable plastics, single-use plastics are usually recyclable. These include items like food packaging, grocery bags, cutlery, and more.

Renewable resources and materials represent the world’s most sustainable source of food packaging materials. Very simply, renewable resources are those that can be restored or will grow again. For example, trees are a renewable resource that is used widely throughout the food packaging industry. However, not all renewable resources are replenished at the same rate.

Polyethylene (PE) is a very popular food packaging material. It’s available in a number of different forms, including the most popular High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE). This material is used in bottles, containers, and more. On the other hand, Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is a material normally used in film applications due to its transparency, flexibility, and toughness.
While it’s not biodegradable, PE, HDPE, LDPE, and others are very recyclable. These materials can be recycled into different materials.

Polypropylene (PP) is an ideal food-safe plastic used for processes that involve high heat. For example, PP is regularly used for ready-to-eat meals, sour cream containers, yogurt containers, and more. This material has gained wide popularity for microwavable containers.
