Tomorrow, restaurants, bistros and cafes will not only have to offer drinks and food to take away, but also in reusable containers. From January 1, 2023 is the deadline for the so-called reusable.
In order to avoid packaging waste, restaurants, snack bars and cafés must therefore offer an alternative to reusable packaging for itinerant sales.
The regulation applies not only to food, but also to beverages. According to the federal government, 770 tonnes of packaging waste are generated every day in Germany from disposable take-out packaging alone. This should change with the new 2023 regulations.
