The Paper Straw Co

Over the past few months, The Paper Straw Co has engaged with the Hotel & Catering Industry as well as with a number of International Retail Chains to promote the benefits of Bio Degradable Paper Straws made in the UK. The interest has been so strong that the company decided to airfreight their 2nd Paper Straw Making machine to meet customer demand.

A big driver behind this high level of interest has been the fact that all the raw materials used in the production are from certified EU raw material sources; Food grade adhesives to Food grade and FSC base paper.A final point of differentiation is the company’s ability to print the individual straw with up to 2 colour logo’s and wrap the finished Paper Straw individually in specially designed FSC certified Straw Wrapping Paper.
