NEW YORK – World Centric, Rohnert Park, Calif., introduced its World Centric Leaf collection of lids for bowls and cups at the International Restaurant & Foodservice Show of New York. 

The new lids are made from unbleached plant fiber sourced from renewable plants like sugarcane and bamboo and are 100% compostable. The collection is durable, freezer-safe, and suitable for cold or hot items up to 220 degrees Fahrenheit and intended to replace use of petroleum-based plastic lids. 

"We are thrilled to unveil our new World Centric Leaf lid collection," said Mark Stephany, World Centric senior vice president of sales. "Using unbleached plant fibers to make our lids helps protect forest habitats that support both indigenous cultures and wildlife, while providing our foodservice customers an alternative to traditional disposable products." 

The new lid collection is on display at booth no. 2021 at the International Restaurant and Foodservice show until March 10.
