Cafes & Restaurants


Friendlypak offers an extensive range of environmentally friendly products for use in cafes and restaurants, from food preparation, food packaging and serving, coffee cups and holders, to waste solutions for the kitchen and bathrooms.

We can send one of our reps along to visit your premises to take a look at what you are already using and make some alternative product recommendations to ensure your switch to ‘environmentally friendly’ is easy!

The first step we usually suggest is to start collecting your kitchen scraps separately in a 40L handle wheelie bin, lined with a compostable sack. This separation of organic waste from landfill makes the biggest and best impact on the environment, as it allows the organic waste to be composted, worm farmed or collected by a service such as Greenwork to be taken to a composting facility.  This simple change results in a huge reduction of waste going to landfill, and returning organic matter to the earth – as nature intended. 
The use of a compostable liner for the wheelie bin results in you saving time and money cleaning out smelly bins, and at the same time doing the environment a big favour! The liner will compost along with the organic matter.

We also supply liners to fit all size bins for other areas within the premises. Please see Bagpak for all sizes available.

For the kitchen and food preparation we have a variety of products, from disposable gloves, to a world first product – biodegradable cling film (sorry out of stock at the moment), which is completely compostable allowing it to be disposed of along with your other compostable items. As well as being biodegrable, our cling film is also safe and non-toxic. It is also available in a commercial size.

For cabinet food display, we have a new product range that has just become available – our Bamboo range, which has proven to be hugely popular. Designed to be disposable and 100% compostable, simply pop it in with the organic waste once you are finished with it.

Our compostable coffee cups come in all the standard sizing, along with lids to fit. We encourage the use of our recycled paper serviettes to wrap around the cup for protection from heat, and useful to wipe mouths afterwards!

For takeaway needs, our Potatopak and Sugar Cane ranges have an extensive offering of punnets and clams in many sizes and styles to suit.  We can bring in samples to show you to determine which products in the range will be most appropriate for your business.

Our timber cutlery range goes well with the takeaway containers, and has received much positive feedback from our customers, who like the eco-friendly look and function of the products.  Container, food waste, serviette and cutlery can all be composted, worm farmed or collected in organic refuse bins.

Compostable drinking straws are available too, in a few different sizes.
