Bridge-Gate is a leading manufacturer of quality disposables to the foodservice industry. In 2005 they introduced a premium line of sturdy, oil and grease-resistant dinnerware made from biomass natural fibers as an alternative to polystyrene foam and conventional molded fiber.
As both consumers and foodservice businesses have sought to eliminate the use of polystyrene foam products, Bridge-Gate has expanded its product mix to include a wide variety of compostable take-out packaging made from the same renewable resources as their natural brown dinnerware — organic, waste fibers from harvested wheat.
Bridge-Gate natural fiber pulp foodservice packaging is produced with the most environmentally responsible methods in mind.
Bridge-Gate starts with raw material in its purest form —the byproduct of agricultural waste — instead of dried pulp sheets from paper mills, which can be very inconsistent. The company strategically located their factory in close proximity to where it is grown and harvested — requiring less fuel for delivery than is typically required to truck pulp sheets from remotely located paper mills.
Bridge-Gate pulps the fibers with their exclusive, patented Biopulping method, taking great pride in this zero pollution process which is chemical free, utilizes very little water and has a completely self-contained washing system.
Once pulping is complete, the material pumps directly into production of Bridge-Gate finished goods. By eliminating the pulp drying process, less energy and less water is used.
Bridge-Gate products are certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI), which identifies products that meet stringent, scientifically-based specifications for compostability. Bridge-Gate products meet test standards ASTM D6400 and ASTM D6868 and are designed to disintegrate swiftly and safely in a professionally managed composting facility.
Be assured you will always receive a compostable, consistently high quality foodservice product that has been developed and fabricated with utmost concern for the environment.
