Company Overview

SD Trading strives to bring the world new types of sustainable and compostable disposables. It’s our strong believe the world is ready for new ways of looking at sustainable products and sustainability in general. Sustainability empowers long-term philosophy and transparency and it makes us aware of the environment and energy use. Besides that it’s the new way of becoming successful and to distinguish oneself.

“Our disposable products are entirely made of natural material and thereby not comparable with disposable products made from plastic or cardboard. Moreover, all our products are compostable. As a consequence thereof our products fall outside the regular IFS and BRC tests for disposable products. Nevertheless we have our products tested by professional agencies with regard to certain “food contact” requirements and biodegradability.”

Next to the first sustainable design disposable in the world “WASARA”, Hampi The Premium Palmplate, SD Trading will launch more product lines in the near future. Furthermore SD Trading is able to develop sustainable design disposable solutions for  both Airlines as Cruise lines where design and sustainability is as important as the weight of the product.

SD stands for Sustainable Disposables and that’s exactly what the company is all about. SD Trading trades sustainable disposables. We distribute, import, export, produce and develop sustainable disposables for mainly the hospitality, aviation and consumer markets.

SD Trading wants to become the world’s best known trading company for sustainable disposables.
By combining design and sustainability we promise you Single Use, Lasting Experience.

All our products come with an authentic experience, we measure our success by the positive impact we have. It’s our pleasure to not only bring the market the best products but also keep innovating these and share our knowledge with you. Frankness in all what we do is just the least we can do – This is what we value!

Because you don’t have to use ugly and environmentally unfriendly tableware – that’s why we do it!

Why us? Why use Sustainable Disposables?

Save money

  • Save money on Serving Staff
  • Save money on Kitchen Staff
  • Save money on cleaning
  • Save money on logistics

Less staff will be needed to handle the lightweight compact disposables as well in service as in the kitchen. Stewarding staff and or even (rental) dishwashing facilities won’t be necessary.  Also the logistics and transport won’t be expensive or hard, even plates for a party of 1000 could be transported, carried around and handled by one person only. The price is at minimal equal to porcelain if not better priced but this time you won’t pay what you don’t use. The multiple sized references let chefs choose that plate that presents there carefully calculated dishes the best.

Sustainability of a product starts at the production. It means no waste, reuse of water, fair wages, good working circumstances, use of renewable sources, efficient use of all resources and more. All our products are made out of waste material, we literally borrow this material  from mother Earth. After use its biodegradability and even compostability  makes sure it will be given back to Earth instead of increasing the pollution.

Mise en place can be done in the quiet hours while heating up meals could be done on location. The products will hold liquids  for at least 48 hours. Also the use in freezer won’t be any problem.
