BB Foodservice makes it easy being green with new comprehensive non-food range

BB Foodservice has launched a comprehensive non-food catalogue offering an enormous range of products at incredible prices. The vast majority of products in the catalogue are recyclable, and the catalogue also includes a whole range dedicated entirely to products that are biodegradable or compostable.

The move is a major step in the wholesaler’s wider aim to only sell own brand essentially catering ranges that are biodegradable, compostable or recyclable, by 2020.

Tony Holmes, sales director, BB Foodservice (Bestway Wholesale) said: “There’s mounting pressure on food and drink businesses to ditch single-use plastics, with almost half of consumers saying manufacturers should make all packaging recyclable. That’s why we’ve done our bit to make it easier for food and drink businesses – leveraging our considerable buying power and independent status to offer incredible prices on an incredible catalogue of non-food products. It’s just another way we deliver for our customers.”

From burger boxes to cutlery and coffee cups all the items in the bio/compostable range – are made from either Bagasse, Polylactic Acid (PLA), or Crystalline Polylactic Acid (CPLA).

  • Bagasse – a moulded natural fibre product made from bamboo plants, reeds, and other natural non-wood fibres
  • Polylactic Acid (PLA) – a plant-based resin commonly derived from corn starch, maize, sugar, or wheat
  • Crystalline Polylactic Acid (CPLA) – a crystalline form of PLA, which has a higher heat resistance; making it ideal for hot cup lids and cutlery

The comprehensive non-food catalogue is available through the BB Foodservice sales team or online at
