Rig-Tig From Rig-Tig comes the stylish Picnic assortment, a collection designed to make outdoor dining easy. The new Picnic vacuum flask and baking tin are perfect for trips to parks, the beach or the woods with friends and family. The vacuum flask keeps drinks hot or cold for many hours, having been designed with double-wall vacuum insulation in steel, which keeps liquids hot for 11 hours or cold for 22 hours. The flask comes with four cups in different shades, making it easy to remember who’s using each cup. The cups are made from PBT plastic which means that they won’t break if you drop them – perfect for families with small children. Meanwhile, the Picnic baking tin comes in a size to make enough cake for everyone. The non-stick coating ensures that cakes are easily released from the tin. The included lid also functions as a serving tray.

“The focus has shifted to more durable and environmentally-friendly products. Amefa’s Leaves is one of those products – a durable alternative to plastic and other single-use cutlery. Proactively designed by Amefa, in anticipation of the European legislation banning single use plastics from our society. Leaves is featherlight and thin, however it looks, feels and eats like regular cutlery. The design has a curved, gloss handle that is optimised for stacking.” Benoit Desoutter, group food service director, Amefa 50 TABLEWARE INTERNATIONAL
