What if you don't sell what I am looking for?

No problem. As part of Bunzl, we have adopted their “one-stop-shop” business model, meaning if you need a different food packaging material or tableware item, we will try wherever possible to source and supply it. Simply leave us a message to discuss this further.

What makes your products different form others?

At Verive we have clear product commitments. For example, if we say a product is made of recycled materials, you can be sure a minimum of 51% recycled material is used. If we say a product is recyclable, it is fully recyclable in regular, accessible waste streams. And we maintain a few more of these commitments, always assuring you a sustainable and responsible solution.

Do you sell reusable packaging?

Yes, we do. From cups to plates and meal boxes to PC (polycarbonate) glasses, you will find everything in our catalogue and via our products page. There are a lot of customisation options available to showcase your brand. 

In addition, we sell products to support your reusable systems. Think of RFID-chipped hardware, collection bins, and rinse aid. Check our Verive 360 page for more information, or simply send us a message.

Do you do off-site washing?

We can facilitate off-site washing for you. As a ‘one-stop-shop’ service partner, we are here to assist you every step of the way.

Do you facilitate deposit schemes with possible smart solutions?

Yes, we do. We can advise you on suitable deposit schemes and have everything in place to tailor the hardware to your needs. Think of QR codes, barcodes, or even RFID chips in combination with regular or smart bins. We can even connect this to your software systems, like apps and reward systems.

What materials do you use for your packaging?

We use different kinds of materials. For disposable packaging, think paper, cardboard, bagasse, palm leaf, rPET, wood, and bamboo. For our reusables, we mainly use PP but also PC, PETG, and composite. For each product group, the material is indicated on our product pages and in the catalogue.
