May 27, 2011 - PRLog -- ATLANTA – Georgia-Pacific Professional, known for its popular Dixie®, Brawny Industrial™ and enMotion® brands, announces the addition of paper plates and bowls to its equally familiar Mardi Gras® line of paper products. Now available to foodservice operators, the plates and bowls provide a dependable, efficient and cost-effective alternative to common foam dining products.

The Mardi Gras line is a win-win for everyone. Unlike foam products, Mardi Gras plates and bowls are sturdy, cut-resistant and microwavable.

“The innovative extension to the Mardi Gras line is specifically designed with the operator, consumer and environment in mind,” says Alicia McCabe, director of the plates and containers category at Georgia-Pacific Professional. “In addition to providing quality and convenience, the products are made without inks, dyes or foam. Unlike its foam counterpart, Mardi Gras plates and bowls offer sustainability benefits and address customer environmental concerns.”

With a lower cube volume and stacking height, packages of the Mardi Gras plates provide better cube efficiency for less storage, which help operators cut costs on transportation expenses. As a space and shipping saver, the plates require three times less storage space than foam, allowing for more product to be transported on a truck at any given time.
