Castaway Food Packaging
Castaway Food Packaging
Over the past 35 years Castaway® products have been at the forefront of innovation for the foodservice industry. The core value of all Castaway® products is innovation, and the desire to create true value for our customers. This remains the cornerstone of the Castaway® range as new product development and continual product improvement are at the heart of our business.
From humble beginnings, starting with garbage bags to a range of over 1000 products, the Castaway® range of products has grown as our customers needs have changed.
Today it includes paper and plastic cups, food containers, wrapping materials, plates, bowls, food trays, napkins, cutlery and bags
Our washroom and janitorial product category is labeled PrimeSource® by Castaway®. This range of products has been developed with the foodservice customer in mind as they cover the needs of food preparation, cleanup and disposal, as well as washroom and janitorial items. The PrimeSource® brand encompasses garbage bags, wipes, gloves and paper goods and dispensers, with a strong focus on using recycled and sustainable materials.
Our commitment to local manufacturing, a culture of continual innovation and the emphasis on customer education by providing options and sustainability information will drive the Castaway range of products into the future as we are committed to providing profitable packaging solutions for our customers.
Promote a culture of innovation in order to continuously improve the functionality, environmental sustainability and efficiency of all our products.
