++  Important: Ban on single-use plastic items ++

From 1 October 2023 businesses must no longer supply, sell or offer certain single-use plastic items in England*. Single-use plastics ban: plates, bowls, trays, containers, cutlery and balloon sticks.

For compliance, Chefswarehouse will be revising our listings in time for the changes commencing 01/10/2023. Please click for further HMG guidance 

You are probably already aware but this will affect a wide range of takeaway, fast food and other hospitality outlets, failure to comply may result in considerable fines.

*Similar bans are either in force or coming into force in Scotland, Wales & N. Ireland

Please Switch to Biodegradables 

Chefswarehouse advocates, with a passion, practical, economically-priced, biodegradable and compostable alternatives to non-recyclable catering disposables. With so many innovative products now available, there's no reason not to contribute to lowering your  carbon footprint & reducing damaging residual plastic and chemical waste. 

Reducing plastic waste is urgent and we can all play our part to help: see the article: Plastic pollution: take-out food is littering the oceans that demonstrates the scale of the problem
