Making Tomorrow More Sustainable

In today's eco-conscious world, the spotlight on sustainability is shining brighter than ever. For the restaurant and food truck industry the improvement of both food and packaging waste management is a crucial step towards a more sustainable future. As a packaging manufacturer, we recognise the pivotal role that we play in reducing waste, which is why we specialise in only using sustainable, compostable materials.



Here are our practical tips for helping make your business more sustainable:

Embracing Compostable Packaging: The shift towards compostable packaging is a game-changer in waste reduction efforts. Compostable materials, derived from renewable sources like plant-based fibres, break down into nutrient-rich compost when disposed of correctly. Restaurants and food trucks can make a substantial impact by replacing conventional plastic-based packaging with compostable alternatives. Our compostable branded greaseproof paper solutions offer durability, functionality, and eco-friendliness, allowing businesses to serve food stylishly while reducing environmental impact.



Sustainable Supply Chain Practices: Collaborating with suppliers committed to sustainability is crucial. Choosing ingredients packaged in compostable materials or opting for bulk purchases to minimize packaging waste can significantly reduce the overall waste footprint. Encouraging suppliers to adopt sustainable packaging practices contributes to a holistic approach towards waste reduction in the food industry. Why not speak to your suppliers about your concerns.


Educating Staff and Customers: Proper waste sorting and disposal procedures is key to reducing waste. Training staff on the importance of segregating waste into compostable, recyclable, and non-recyclable streams is vital. Additionally, educating customers about compostable packaging and providing clear instructions on disposal methods promotes a collective effort in waste reduction.

Portion Sizes: Reducing food waste goes hand in hand with minimising packaging waste. Everyone loves to receive a portion that feels like you’ve received your money’s worth, but if much of that food ends up uneaten, then it could be worth looking at portion control. An alternative for dine in restaurants is to offer customers a take-home solution, ideally using compostable packaging to do so. It’s worth considering adding instruction to packaging to customers know how to consume leftover food at it’s best.



Community Composting Programs: Supporting community composting initiatives or establishing partnerships with local composting facilities can ensure proper disposal and processing of compostable packaging and organic waste. Engaging in such programs not only diverts waste from landfills but also enriches the community by contributing to the creation of nutrient-rich compost for local agriculture.

The restaurant and food truck industry hold significant potential in driving positive change towards a more sustainable future. By embracing compostable packaging solutions and implementing waste reduction strategies, businesses can play a pivotal role in mitigating environmental impact. At It’s a Wrap we are committed to supporting these efforts by providing high-quality compostable materials that empower businesses to serve delicious meals responsibly while contributing to a cleaner, greener future.
