What makes us unique?
Ecolates is founded by a group of friends who have been a part of the service industry in India and abroad for over a decade. They chipped in their valuable experience and knowledge to cater to the rising demands for eco-friendly options in the food servicing industry. Our manufacturing plant is equipped with the latest technology to produce high quality food servicing solutions in no time.
We are located in India. This speaks a ton about our claim of being ready to meet your demands round the clock. In India, 21% of agricultural area is used for sugarcane production. About 22% of the total sugarcane in the world comes from India. There is no dearth of bagasse from where we are based. We can keep the production on and never stop.
More from less
Sugarcane is a crop with high bio-conversion efficiency and can be harvested in a single season. For every tonne of sugarcane stalks that are crushed, about 30 tonnes of bagasse can be obtained. Everything that naturally remains from the crushed sugarcane is used in our production line. We don’t waste, even while managing waste.
Bagasse is thermal resistant and can hold hot food up to 95 degree Celsius or 200F. This means the food in a bagasse container can be heated in a microwave for temperatures up to 200F.
Strong enough to build!
Bagasse containers and tableware are just as strong and durable as plastic. They are more durable and firmer than polystyrene containers due to the fibrous texture. In fact, various studies have been conducted to investigate the use of sugarcane bagasse ash as a replacement for cement in ordinary, lightweight, and self-compacting concretes.
Refrigerate until consumption
Bagasse packing solutions are refrigerator safe and can be used to store food until consumption without worrying about deterioration of the food quality.
Water and grease resistant
Bagasse containers are grease the water resistant. Rest assured, your food will not meet an untimely demise in our containers.
Purpose of the Company
The consumer sentiment today is driven towards preserving nature by saving trees and eliminating pollutants such as plastics from the environment. Ecolates was founded to meet this demand without compromising on the quality of service. We have named ourselves by combing two key terms – Ecosystem and Plates.
