Elara Foodservice Disposables is bringing a new business model to the foodservice industry, one in which its product sales are directly tied to fighting hunger. Elara is a designer and producer of high quality food contact gloves, plastic cutlery and related products for restaurant and institutional foodservice operators. As a result of its business model, Elara has donated more than 100,000 meals to those in need(!) within a matter of months.
“One Case • One Meal” is Elara’s signature hunger relief program, providing meals in partnership with a local food bank to people struggling with hunger. For each case of Elara products purchased, Elara provides the cash equivalent of one meal to a food bank delivering meals to individuals at risk of going hungry. With no cap to the number of meal donations, Elara will strengthen its fight against hunger in direct alignment with everything it does as a business. This means that, as Elara customers, restaurants and other establishments serving food can continually help reduce hunger as well in their normal course of business.
At the upcoming National Restaurant Association (NRA) Show 2012 on May 5-8 at McCormick Place in Chicago (the largest restaurant industry event in the country), Elara will be extending the One Case • One Meal program to anyone visiting the Elara booth (#7852). As a special promotion at the NRA Show, Elara will donate a meal to someone in need for every attendee badge scanned. With 58,000 industry professionals expected to be in attendance, this represents a large opportunity for the foodservice community to make a difference.
“Dan Grinberg and Elara know how important it is to address the growing issue of hunger in our communities,” said Randi Shubin Dresner, president and CEO, Island Harvest, Long Island’s largest hunger relief organization. “Their generous support is not only heartwarming and welcome, but it also highlights Elara’s leadership position in showing how a for-profit business can incorporate an important philanthropic component within its business model.”
Forty-nine (49) million people in the United States are struggling with hunger, with 17 million children living in food insecure households. For a nation as wealthy as the U.S., this level of hunger is shocking. Through Elara’s unique business model and its One Case • One Meal hunger relief program, the foodservice industry can help reduce these numbers and make a positive impact.
Elara Foodservice Disposables is a designer and producer of high quality food contact gloves, plastic cutlery, food storage bags and related products for restaurant and institutional foodservice operators. Elara also has a social mission built into its DNA – fighting hunger. For every case of product it sells, Elara provides a meal for someone struggling with hunger. Headquartered in Jericho, NY, Elara was founded by Dan Grinberg, a recognized supporter of hunger relief who previously built and sold FoodHandler Inc.

These custom designed plastic serving spoons are another example of how operators can differentiate their restaurant and help increase their guest experience - in a low cost way. Through a thoughtful, creative design...combined with the approriate color match (and hey, with these brilliant hues - who wouldn't want to use a great color!?)....operators can add fun and entertainment to tasting menus, dessert service, and obviously to carry-out. Think beyond sorbet and ice cream and you can come up with many ways these can add low-cost fun to the dining experience.
According to brand strategy site, www.corporate-eye.com, you need to "look for ways where you can deliver brand experiences that are better than or unique from what your competitors offer. This theory hold true anytime, but it's particularly important when the economy is weak and people are actively and aggressively looking for both value and help."
We often hear about how it costs too much for custom designs or how operators need to cut expensive overheads. Well, by taking something like these custom plastic spoons (or something similar, depending upon what type of operation you are dealing with), you can likely reduce costs....and enhance the overall guest experience.
There are more than likely other manufacturers, but these come from Carry Out Supplies in California and are Eco-Friendly. Check them out at the Show in booth # 6861 or go to www.carryoutsupplies.com
From the website - www.ShortList.com - comes this innovative disposable cutlery from Lekue. "Twin One" is designed by British firm DesignWright, through thoughtful design it is either a knife and fork or a convenient set of chopsticks.
