Schools Foodservice Single-Use Products
Demand for foodservice single-use packaging in schools is forecast to increase 5.4% per year to $1.4 billion in 2027, reflecting the increasing popularity of to-go eating in institutional settings and attempts to reduce labor costs associated with washing reusable utensils and dinnerware.
