Disposable tableware Disposable fast food box is a kind of appliance made of resin or other thermoplastic materials by high temperature hot melt plastic injection molding technology. Different according to material, disposable fast food box can be divided into PP (polypropylene) fast food box, PS (polystyrene) fast food box, EPS (foamed polystyrene) fast food box and other kinds, among them PP fast food box has heat resistant performance, chemical stability is high, the advantage such as strong corrosion resistance, its application range is more extensive. In recent years, with the gradual improvement of national consumption level and the strong development momentum of takeaway industry, the demand of disposable fast-food box market is constantly released, and the industry scale is gradually expanding.
From the perspective of industry chain, the upstream of disposable fast food box industry chain is the raw material supplier, including PP, PE, EPS and other raw materials; The middle reaches are all kinds of disposable fast-food box manufacturers; Downstream is the application layer, which involves takeout and restaurants.
