BOULDER, CO -- Eco-Products, a Novolex brand, has introduced a line of compostable utensils for use in Cutlerease, a new dispenser that offers customers one fork, knife or spoon at a time.

The system improves cleanliness, reduces waste, saves space and provides customers with a more convenient way to get compostable utensils.

Waddington North America, also a Novolex brand, introduced the Cutlerease system for single-use utensils earlier this year. Eco-Products is now offering BPI-certified compostable forks, spoons and knives that are compatible with this dispenser.

Cutlerease's reduces refill frequency by holding up to 360 pieces of cutlery. No batteries or electrical outlets are required, allowing operators to place Cutlerease where guests are best served.

When compostable cutlery is part of a fully compostable bundle of packaging, customers can put all of the packaging, as well as their uneaten food, into a compost bin to be diverted from the landfill. For customers without access to a commercial composter, Eco-Products' utensils still offer the benefits of being made with plants, a renewable resource.

The Cutlerease system features refill packs that make restocking easy and do not require an employee to touch the actual cutlery. The system has no trays or levers, which further cuts down on the transfer of germs. Guests simply pull on the handle of the piece they want, and the next piece pops out, ready for the next customer.

Cutlerease is easily adaptable, allowing foodservice operators to mix and match utensils. For example, the dispenser could offer a fork/knife/spoon combination for a restaurant, or three towers of spoons for an ice cream store.

In addition to the new utensils, Eco-Products offers a variety of single-use foodservice products made from renewable and recycled resources. These include plates, bowls, hot cups, cold cups, utensils, food containers and straws.
