Transcend Packaging

The UK Parliament and European Parliaments have voted to ban single-use plastic cutlery, cotton buds, straws and stirrers as part of a series of regulations to prevent plastic waste that despoils beaches and pollutes oceans

Transcend’s first product was a fully compostable paper straw, made to a significantly higher standard than those currently available in the UK and for which Transcend has been awarded a contract to supply straws to McDonalds UK.

Transcend is expected to start mass production of a single use fully compostable coffee cup and lid, making it well placed to take advantage of the ‘latte levy’ and growing customer movement against single use coffee cups.

Transcend’s contracted customers include McDonalds UK, Costa Coffee, KFC, Nestle, Iceland, Aldi, Waitrose, Plastico, Bunzl and Muller.
