About SD Trading

Our Story

2013-08-31 03.19.21
Our story began with a need to make a difference and to engage others to do the same.

We have created a green alternative to paper, plastic and all other tableware, even porcelain and silver – challenging the status quo of tableware within the hospitality and foodservice industry – changing the perception of disposable tableware and prove that sustainability can be sexy!

We run our own productions to be able to track every move and to carefully select the best procedures. Not only can we now ensure both environmental and social sustainability, it also enables us to meet your specific wishes. Together we can lead the change towards a sustainable and cool lifestyle.


We want to offer amazing, green alternative tableware to provide for a cleaner and more beautiful world while connecting people and creating lasting experiences.


Sustainability is a neccesity, but should not be a burden. Why not use it to make life easier?

We are combining our experiences with the wishes of chefs and the feedback of our partners and clients to develop top notch design tableware that is sustainable and practical at the same time. Not only does this decrease our impact on the environment, it also makes arranging an event a bit less stressful and more fun – whether big or small, private or professional.


We are constantly developing our products and expanding our range to keep meeting different needs and demands. We want to offer you the #1 green alternative with premium quality and great design that will outshine all other disposables and even porcelain in addition to its unlimited convenience.

Using compostable tableware will enhance both your and your guest’s experiences. The plates are made from only natural materials and boast a great design that lifts up your dishes to real culinary masterpieces. It happens far too often that you get a delicious meal served on a flimsy single use plate that doesn’t exactly increase the WOW factor and ends up at the landfill, where he definitely won’t be alone. We offer you the resources to change your ways and create lasting experiences instead of trash.
