Disposable_ProductsAccording to Technomic, sustainability and social responsibility are taking on greater importance within the foodservice industry. In a study recently completed by Technomic, 63 percent of consumers said they are more likely to visit a foodservice operation they view as socially conscious.1

That’s why more and more of our vendors as well as Martin Bros. as a distributor continue to reinforce commitments to being good stewards of our environment.

In the disposable products category, there are vendors such as these listed below creating products that are simply more sustainable. These products obviously play an important role in helping foodservice be more sustainable.



Solo is committed to providing sustainable choices and educating customers about materials and disposal options. Solo’s Eco-Forward® products use renewable resources, use post-consumer recycled content and/or are commercially compostable.
