Chinet® Brand Premium Disposable Tableware Announces New Product

America’s premium disposable tableware brand, Chinet®, continues to bring innovation to the disposable tableware category by launching a new product in the Chinet® Classic White™ line. The newly launched 20-ounce Salad and Side Dish will be available in stores beginning March 2009.

“We worked with consumer feedback to develop this product,” said Julie Stoetzer, Chinet Brand Marketing Manager. “Our new Salad and Side Dish is part of the Chinet Classic White line, all of which are made of 100 percent pre-consumer recycled material. The line is also chlorine-free, microwave safe and fully biodegradable in home composting.

The Chinet Classic White Salad and Side Dish design was based on new consumer eating trends,” continued Stoetzer. “Consumers are eating more salads than they used to and are serving them when entertaining. The Chinet Salad and Side Dish is wider and shallower than traditional bowls so the salad looks better on the table and dressing can reach more of the salad contents. This new Salad and Side Dish coordinates with the rest of the Chinet Classic White line.”

The Chinet Classic White Salad and Side Dish will be available in stores March 2009 in packages of 20, retailing for around $2.99. For more information, visit
