Tri-Star Packaging’s revolutionary Oval Eco Street Bowl has scooped Gold in the Casual Dining Show Innovation Challenge 2016 – which means it has now racked up an impressive hat-trick of awards triumphs inside just five months.
The Oval Eco Street Bowl was one of only three Gold winners at Casual Dining, which was held at the Business Design Centre in London on 24-25 February 2016. Judges said the bowl was a “great innovation with excellent eco-credentials”. In addition, they added that it offered “so many practical uses and allows an easy execution every time”.
Kevin Curran, Managing Director of Tri-Star, said: “The Oval Eco Street Bowl is attracting a lot of attention from our customers, so it doesn’t surprise me that the judging panel at the Innovation Challenge recognised its stand-out qualities. In a world dominated by the circular and the square, the Oval Eco Street Bowl is a breath of fresh air. It offers something truly unique – an ergonomic solution to eating on-the-go, and outstanding environmental credentials to boot.”
Made from unbleached bagasse – a fully compostable sugar cane pulp that grows abundantly – the Oval Eco Street Bowl is ideal for street food traders and caterers serving hot and cold food-to-go options such as curries, noodles, pasta, burritos and salads. Available in two sizes – 620ml and 770ml – the bowl fits snugly into the customer’s hand, enhancing the all-round eating experience.
The Oval Eco Street Bowl has a strong track record in industry awards. In September 2015, it emerged victorious with the top prize from the packaging section of the Café Product (non-food) of the Year Award category at the Café Life Awards, and was also commended in the Lunch! 2015 Innovation Challenge.
Kevin added: “As its tally of awards wins suggests, the Oval Eco Street Bowl is something special. And with such exceptional eco-friendly qualities, it is a food-to-go packaging solution that no business can afford to ignore if they consider themselves to be serious about their commitment to protecting the environment.”
