Food Safe

All our printing inks are DFC (Direct Food Contact) approved and are compliant with BfR, EU (1935/2004, 10/2001) and US (FDA) regulations.

Long Lasting

Designed to deliver outstanding drink performance, ensuring shape and integrity of straw is retained for many hours and not fall apart instantly.

Whether it be fizzy drinks, smoothies, milkshakes or cocktails, our paper straws are fully functional for use with various cold beverages.

Reduced Impact

Paper is a natural fibre that disintegrates much more quickly than plastic, thus reducing their impact on the World around us.
