Composting = Low Impact

New compostable cups, and always low-impact packaging

Our packaging just got more compostable! We are replacing our plastic sauce cups with PLA (polylactic acid) made from corn. The PLA is compostable: it breaks down in 6-8 weeks in a consistently high-heat compost pile. This means home composting systems won’t compost the cups, but industrial compost does!

Now using compostable sauce cups!
