UAE.  Field Advice, Scandinavia’s leading supplier of food packaging, has recently signed a partnership with Alpha Sky as part of its international expansion plans in the Middle East and to meet the increasing demand for environmentally friendly disposable containers in the region.

Mark Remmy Sali, Managing Director of Field Advice, signed the Memorandum of Understanding with Ayman Al Hilali, CEO of Alpha Sky, last week in the presence of Denmark’s Minister of Environment and Food Esben Lunde Larsen.

Under the agreement, Alpha Sky and Field Advice will supply nature-based disposable tableware and food packaging to restaurants, airlines, hotels, retail and other businesses that cater to consumers who prefer on-the-go, speedy, and convenient food services.

Field Advice tableware and packaging products are made out of renewable resources such as bamboo, palm leaf, sugarcane fiber and starch.

The starch-based packaging look and feel like the plastic containers widely used in the food service industry yet are biodegradable and sustainable.

Ayman said that the growing trend in takeaway and food delivery backed by mobile platforms is raising the demand for disposable food containers globally, and consumers are becoming more conscious not only about what they put inside their bodies but also about how those products are brought to their homes.

“We believe that our food containers is the answer to the demand for packaging that is sustainable and not harmful to the people and the environment,” Ayman said. He added that everyone should take action to support various government initiatives in the region for responsible waste management and the use of sustainable resources.
