Foam Sanitation


According to numerous foodservice studies, single-use foodservice packaging products[1] are more sanitary than reusable china and glassware.

For example, a study in Las Vegas found 18 percent of reusable items tested had higher than acceptable bacterial counts. A similar study in Sacramento County found nearly 30 percent of reusable items tested had higher than acceptable bacterial counts. And a third study in Wisconsin discovered that unprotected tables and trays had up to 23 times higher bacterial counts than those with single-use placemats and tray covers.
