Global Inflight Products introduces biodegradable serveware

The new 100 percent compostable products are made from plant fibre

Global Inflight Products (GIP) is now using plant fibre for passenger cups, casseroles and trayless products. These new products are biodegradable and can be composted after use.

Airlines are increasingly seeking sustainable solutions and, in response, GIP has developed its plant fibre pulp compostable cups to be 100 percent plastic-free. The cups are stackable and leakproof and can be custom designed to meet the needs of hot or cold beverages, including hard liquor.

GIP is also using sugarcane pulp compostable casserole dishes made from plant fibre. The dishes are oven safe to heat up to 302F for 20 minutes. The casseroles are also water and oil-proof. Moulded from bagasse, straw residue, and other non-wood plant fibre pulp, these casseroles come in different shades to enhance onboard services.

GIP hopes to replace all plastic and aluminum with eco-friendly alternatives.
