GWQCupRealEatingCompany webFollowing the introduction of limited-edition 100% compostable cups, each featuring a town landmark, The Real Eating Company, which has a site at Portsmouth’s Gunwharf Quays, has announced it is eliminating plastic across all its cafés where possible.

Helena Hudson, Managing Director, The Real Eating Company, said: “Without doubt, food and drink packaging has contributed to the plastic waste hazard in our environment and I really wanted to do something about this in our business as we use a lot of packaging.
It took a while to source plant-based alternatives for everything we needed but we did it. Once you start looking into this industry, it is amazing what can be made out of plants! We’re really pleased to now say that all our packaging is 100% plant-based, sustainably made and biodegradable.”
