HOSTI goes natural with MMK Karton

Virgin Fibre Cartonboard, Sustainability, Customer Stories

Disposable tableware is often a good choice, provided it is made of the right material: HOSTI GmbH, Europe’s largest manufacturer of paper plates, counts on Excellent Top™ Brown for its brown product line.

Sustainable disposable tableware
Be it a large backyard barbecue with lots of guests, a children’s party or any other event: Those who do not regularly invite lots of people usually don’t have enough dishes. The mountains of waste created by the use of single-use plastic dishes are growing. With the “Single-Use Plastics Directive”, the EU aims to reduce single-use plastics items or replace them with existing more sustainable alternatives by 2021 at the latest. At the top of the banned list: plastic tableware.
Paper plates made of recyclable raw materials combine eco-friendliness with convenience. For 70 years, HOSTI as the European market leader has been producing sustainable single-use tableware made of cartonboard – made of renewable resources, biodegradable and completely plastic-free.

Success factor cartonboard
HOSTI’s success factors include decades of know-how and the most stringent standards in production, but above all long-term, trusted raw material suppliers who consistently deliver high-quality cartonboard. For its brown product line, HOSTI relies on our uncoated, unbleached Kraft cartonboard quality Excellent Top™ Brown: Made of renewable and natural resources, shaped by HOSTI into individual and smart form solutions. The cartonboard is free of optical brightening agents (OBAs).

“The amount of plastic waste in the oceans and seas is increasing steadily – with negative consequences for ecosystems, biodiversity, and possibly human health. At the same time, valuable materials that could be returned to the economic cycle are lost. Single-use plastic items make up about half of all waste found on European beaches. For over 70 years, our first concern has been to manufacture sustainable single-use products. We replace harmful plastics with sustainable and economical plates and paper bowls. We want our products to bring joy to our customers’ lives at parties and events, without negatively impacting the lives of future generations.” Björn Kunz, Head of Marketing & Sales at HOSTI.
