Bambu Expands Range with New Product Innovation

Portland, Oregon – April, 2016 – bambu redefines disposable dinnerware with its expanded range of the company’s Veneerware® brand of disposable bamboo dinnerware.

Veneerware is the premier brand of disposable dinnerware. Veneerware offers an elegant and natural accent to any mean or event. Veneerware is the only disposable dinnerware made from certified organic bamboo.

Since the introduction of the premium quality disposable dinnerware in 2003, Veneerware has been preferred choice by caterers, event planners, and dinner hosts, and party makers. Veneerware has been the choice of dinnerware for Hollywood parties, Sundance Film Festival, political dinner parties, campus events, and poolside parties.

Bambu introduces five (5) new products to the line. Three new sizes of bamboo plates expand the range to 8 sizes and shapes of eco plates. The new sizes are square plates (11”, 5” and 3 ½” sizes). The company also introduces a bamboo bowl. The bamboo bowl is in response to customer requests for a bowl that matched the dinnerware. The bowl is 7” diameter and is ideal for salads, sides and desserts. The other new product that rounds out the disposable dinnerware range is a new disposable bamboo tongs. Veneerware tongs are the first and only biodegradable bamboo tongs. These handsome tongs are an elegant and natural alternative to typical, cheap plastic tongs. The Veneerware bamboo tongs are the result of six months of development between bambu and its chief producer and adds to the brand's disposable cutlery range. 

The company also makes compostable utensils under the Veneerware brand name. Bamboo utensils include bamboo forks, bamboo spoons, bamboo knives and bamboo sporks. The company sells its products through retail stores such as Eataly, Whole Foods, New Seasons and other retail stores. Veneerware can also be purchased online at Amazon, or directly from the company at Veneerware is available in both small pack sizes and larger volume packs, as well.
