INNOCAT project seeks suppliers of biodegradable catering products

An important aspect of the procurement of eco-innovative catering is the procurement of biodegradable products relating to the provision of catering services, such as plates, dishes, and packaging.

A large number of European companies offer a wide variety of biodegradable products; however, it is often difficult to find information on such companies across all EU member states.

If your company is the producer of biodegradable plates, dishes and/or packaging relevant to the provision of catering services, the INNOCAT project partners would be interested in hearing from you. Please write to and tell us more about your product.
