Before selecting the styrofoam disposables that you need, be sure to ask the correct questions and get familiar with how foam works. Foam disposables are really great for holding food and beverages at the correct temperatures. Foam food containers are excellent at serving hot food because it will stay hot longer than serving it in any other containers. Serving hot and cold beverages work really great in styrofoam containers and cups for the same reason, it keeps hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold for longer. One factor that should be analysed is what are the cost benefits? Some times foam isn't the best option as it is generally a little more expensive that paper or plastic. Look at your operation and decide what is best for you!
