5 catering supplies you’ll need for Christmas
Christmas is just around the corner and what better time to start thinking about prepping for the festive season. We wanted to highlight a few of our new products this Christmas season that could help bring innovation to your business, and bring awareness of some great alternatives we have for you for when government changes come around. So let’s get into it!


New Christmas cups

This year we have an exciting new design on our Christmas cups! These Christmas cups will definitely bring the festivity to any drink you serve to your customers. The Christmas cups come in three sizes 8oz, 12oz and 16oz perfect for any drink not just the festive kind! These Christmas cups don’t just look super attractive but they are also made from plant based board with a PLA lining. How great is that! You can feel confident knowing that after your customer uses them they won’t go to landfill because they are compostable.


Christmas crackers

We have seven new crackers that have been added to our current range. The luxury 12inch shimmering wide barrel cracker comes in silver or gold design. These crackers give a touch of luxury for any festive setting and at a fraction of the price!

We also can’t forget our favourite crackers. These crackers carry a special place as they support the Trussell Trust charity. You might remember the designs from last year, well this year we decided to go for something more traditional featuring the red and green colour we all know to be the Christmas colours in three designs. With every Trussell Trust cracker Bidood donates £2 for every case sold. Now available to order via Bidfood Direct – our online shop.



Bolsius candles

There’s no better way of creating ambiance than with candles. Great for any setting, providing hours of soft light and a warm atmosphere to your table even at Christmas. These include pillar candles come in a large pack of 6 in sizes 150 x 78mm and 200 x 68mm. If you are looking for something small our tea lights bring irresistible luxury and style to any table setting. Coming in a pack size of 90 tealights per pack with a burning time of 80 hours!



Notpla packaging

Festive season calls for festive Christmas menus! Have you thought about the packaging you’re using  for your customers as a takeaway option? If you’re in the takeaway industry we recommend something that you can give your customers where there’s no need for you to think where it will end up. At Bidfood we offer packaging solutions that are recyclable and even compostable. One of our top packaging products which has received the Earth Shot Prize in 2022 from Prince William is Notpla!

Notpla is made cardboard with a seaweed lining making it recyclable and biodegradable, creating a barrier between your food and the cardboard. No more leaks! The perfect packaging for your Christmas specials on a winter’s day! You can find Notpla packaging on Bidfood Direct.

Disposable cutlery

At Bidfood we offer so many sustainable cutlery options and not just the wooden kind! We actually offer paper cutlery as an option and you would be surprised how durable it actually is. Paper cutlery is a great solution if you find your customers aren’t too keen on the feel of wooden cutlery. Our paper cutlery was actually designed to be just as effective for tougher foods as wooden cutlery. Our Vegware paper cutlery is made from plants perfect for the upcoming single use plastic ban.
