Compostable food packaging company Vegware has set up an exclusive alliance with US company Berkley Square.

As a result of the partnership, Vegware’s compostable packaging will be available to over 100 US distributors and thousands of food service establishments on top of its existing US sales.

Vegware’s products are made from materials such as sugar cane fibre or corn and as such can be composted with food waste after use.

Berkley Square is a division of paper company Berk Enterprises.

Vegware managing director Joe Frankel said: “At the core of what we do is a simple realisation – you can’t recycle food with plastic in it, and you can’t recycle plastic with food in it. Vegware can be simply recycled with food waste after use.

“I am delighted we will be partnering with Berk to boost our presence in the US and help thousands of American food establishments go green and go zero waste.”
