Surge in sales of Herald's natural birchwood cutlery
11 March, 2019

Disposables manufacturer Herald has reported a surge in sales of its Rootier natural birchwood cutlery, stirrers and skewers range, with orders rising by almost 30% at the end of the last quarter, as the trend for natural products continues.

Managing director of Herald, Yogesh Patel, said: "Natural products are generally regarded as more environmentally-friendly, presenting a conscientious, worthy option that sits better with the growing majority. We've thoroughly embraced this concept and are constantly extending our overall range to cover a full mix of materials."

Herald's Rootier selection also includes ice-cream spoons and the Mr Chip birchwood chip fork.
