It will not only benefit the environment, but will support our own sustainability goals as well as those of so many of our clients.
We spent a great deal of time investigating how we could make our packaging more environmentally friendly, and Vegware
were by far the best solution in terms of the quality of their products and the support they offer.
Like Harrison, they believe in forming strong partnerships."
has also received great support from our long-term disposable product supplier, Key Catering, which helped ensure the smooth introduction of the new packaging into our business."

We are extremely impressed with Harrison
taking this pioneering approach, enabling its sites to go completely compostable."

has had on the school's catering in the 18 months since they joined us has been very positive, and this important commitment to environmental sustainability is a great example of how they are always working to introduce new ideas and initiatives."
