MANUFACTURING PROCESS

01

As an Areca leaf product manufacturer, we have set our products to meet international quality standards through optimized manufacturing process with Hygienic conditions, trained and skilled operational personnel and dedicated quality assurance systems. There are no chemicals or additives used in the entire manufacturing process. It is 100% chemical free. Also the entire process leaves very less Carbon Foot Print when compared to other disposable alternates in the market Even the water used for cleaning is collected and irrigated for the Green cover in the factory premises. Our products are manufactured from fallen dry sheaths of Betel nut trees. The areca sheath when dried will fall from the tree and it is collected from the farms fresh and used for making products. These sheaths are available in plenty in the South India region. The usage of these leaves was started from our ancestors. We are only making them into attractive shapes to meet the different customer requirements.

Bioplates/Ecoplates

02

The Areca Palm tree is a tall, beautiful tree that is hugely abundant in India. In fact, there are hundreds of millions of them. The trees are harvested for their fruit the betel nut, which is used in Paan, a popular Indian delicacy. The tree is endowed with huge leaves, or fronds, which shed and fall to the ground every few weeks. The leaves are usually collected. Some are composted but the remainders, and vast majority, are burned. We turn these leaves into disposable plates, bowls and platters, as an alternative to plastic and paper plates. The products are natural, compostable and biodegradable and yet stylish disposable dishware. The process is simple; we wash the leaf in spring water and heat press it to the correct shape (this also sterilizes the leaf). This is what makes our products different from other ecofriendly disposables. Earthens Bioplates are totally natural. No pulp, no starch, just a washed and pressed leaf. The palm leaf itself varies in thickness from 2 to 4mm, as well as in color and pattern, so you will find that our products vary in thickness, color and pattern too.

ABOUT PRODUCT

03

Renewable source of raw material The disposable leaf plates are made with leaves/sheath of betel-nut tree, a palm family which is a renewable source. Hence no trees are cut for manufacturing these products. The betel-nut trees are grown in hilly areas without any assistance of fertilizers and hence there will not be any trace of pesticides in the leaves. The sheath which primarily protects the betel-nut in the tree falls naturally once it is dried. The fallen leaves are collected fresh from the farm and stored properly. These leaves were cleaned with fresh water before manufacturing the plates. There are no chemicals/additives used in any of the process. The colors possessed by the areca leaves are natural and have no harm when contact with food.
