Last week the National Restaurant Association surveyed chefs to come up with a prediction of what will be the biggest trends in the culinary industry for 2015.
Close to 1,300 chefs were asked to rate what’s hot and what’s not in the food world, concluding that environmental sustainability would be the 3rd biggest menu trend in the coming year.
We at Klover Sales were thrilled were these results. However, we must admit that we were also not at all surprised. Over the past 7 years we have seen the demand for eco-friendly materials skyrocket.
This demand for sustainable tableware is not only from environmentally conscious customers, but from chefs and restaurant owners who believe that products made with natural materials enhance the beauty of their food.
Bamboo, palm and wood are at the core of the Klover Sales line of eco-friendly chef supplies. These three natural, eco-friendly materials are so popular because they satisfy both customer and chef needs. They stand out on a buffet table or serving platter as environmentally sustainable, plus their simple, sleek and elegant design compliments a chef’s food perfectly.
Here are a few best-selling products made from these three materials that will help get your food business on trend for 2015!
Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth, making it a great choice for environmentally sustainable tableware. It can be used to make light-weight serving boats, or a sturdy mini dish that’s perfect for serving hors d’oeuvres.
Our palm leaf products maintain their natural earthy colours and markings, allowing customers to see that chefs have made an eco-friendly choice by using these disposable plates and bowls. Palm leaf plates come in many sizes, making them a great sustainable replacement to styrofoam or plastic.
