NZ Safety Blackwoods put product stewardship front and centre

NZ Safety Blackwoods has launched a brand of food service consumables such as bowls, plates and cutlery made using the by-product of sugar cane. The ‘Planet Pal’ range of products has been developed to satisfy growing demand from customers.

The team has also developed a disposable cup that no longer uses oil in its manufacture. The newly-developed cup uses the plant-based biopolymer ‘Ingeo’ instead of oil. By using a plant-based biopolymer, it has more end-of-life options that can positively divert waste from landfill.
