RMT Global Partners displays best-sellers and more at IFSA EXPO
This month’s IFSA EXPO in California did not disappoint when it came to the variety of passenger comfort products and food service items on display from Texas-based RMT Global Partners. The onboard supplier brought its bagasse meal items, sustainable drinkware, all-in-one drink service tool, cutlery, pillows, blankets, amenity bags and more.
Among RMT’s most popular products are its paper and pulp-based products, such as its bagasse cutlery and ovenable dishes. The lightweight bagasse cutlery is strong, 100 percent biodegradable and an alternative to traditional or wooden cutlery. The ovenable bagasse dishes can withstand temperatures up to 200 degrees Celsius for 45 minutes when used in conjunction with RMT’s aluminum foils and lids. The 100 percent compostable dishes are available in varying sizes and can be customized with customer logo.
For rotable meal items, RMT Global Partners offers custom-designed polycarbonate drinkware. It has crystal clarity and is an alternative to limited-use glass and single-use plastic, says RMT President and CEO Richard Tuttle. It offers superior durability and will not crack, shatter, break, cloud or discolor. The drinkware has been commercially wash-tested more than 2,000 times and has been pressure-tested to ensure that it can withstand substantial impact.
The all-in-one tool features a corkscrew, bottle opener and extendible foil cutter, designed with the help of crew feedback. The core, lever and corkscrew are stamped from 420 stainless steel with a handle made of sturdy polypropylene for a smooth, comfortable hold. Its double-hinged lever can manage long corks and extendable foil cutter adjusts to a variety of bottle tops for convenience. Four circular blades remove foils safely for a professional finish.
RMT offers a range of textiles, including rPET blankets and polyester woven blankets that are designed to withstand frequent sanitizing laundry cycles.
“It was great to meet with the industry again and to see familiar faces in person,” RMT President and CEO Richard Tuttle tells PAX International.
