A little of our history…

 Back in 1882, the story of BBP began as Charles Buckley & Sons Ltd, a ship chandler based in Liverpool. They supplied a large array of items, including sweeping brushes which were manufactured by the company.

These brushes were also sold to the brewing industry and the company identified a necessity for quality cask closures required in beer barrels. Making these closures involved wood turning which was a skill already in use for the manufacture of brush backs.

In 1917, Charles Buckley & Sons moved to Mirfield in West Yorkshire and the journey continued under a new name, The British Bung Manufacturing Company Ltd, manufacturing and supplying traditional wooden cask closures to the brewing industry.

Fast forward to the 1990s, a pivotal era for the business. The company embraced a new chapter, stepping boldly into the world of injection moulding as BBP. Over the last three decades, BBP has successfully established itself as a premier UK manufacturer of innovative and sustainable drinkware and catering ware.

Our journey may have evolved over the years, but one thing remains constant — our roots. We are proud to say that we are still firmly planted on the very same site in Mirfield that we moved to in 1917.

A Sustainable Future with BBP

In recent years, the global movement towards sustainability has gained unprecedented momentum, and it has never been more evident than with the recent ban on single-use plastics in the UK. While this policy shift is a significant step towards a greener future, it's important to understand the nuances of this ban, the broader implications for our environment, and the proactive role that BBP has been playing for nearly three decades.


The Ban in Focus:

As of October 1st, 2023, the UK has officially implemented a ban on single-use plastics. This decision marks a crucial turning point in our collective effort to combat plastic waste and is likely to bring about a number of environmental benefits as well as increasing the public awareness of the impacts of plastic waste. However, it's also important to note that this ban extends to some single-use plastics but not all. While single use items like plates, trays, bowls, cutlery, as well as certain types of polystyrene cups and food containers are now prohibited, this ban is not all-encompassing, yet……..


BBP in Focus:

At BBP, sustainability isn't a recent revelation driven by policy changes; it's always been deeply rooted in our business. We've been dedicated to producing reusable drinkware and catering solutions not due to policy shifts, but because we've always believed that sustainability should be a proactive choice rather than a reactive response.


The Unbreakable Promise

One of the fundamental goals of our manufacturing process is ensuring the longevity of what we produce here at BBP. We understand that durability is a critical factor in reducing waste and as a result, all of our products are designed to withstand the test of time. Our virtually unbreakable polycarbonate drinkware and catering ranges are capable of enduring up to 1,000 wash cycles. This longevity ensures that they not only vastly outlast their single-use counterparts, but also significantly reduce the need for replacements.


Reducing Wastage and Improving Recycling

Sustainability is a multi-faceted concept, and at BBP, we embrace it wholeheartedly. We pride ourselves on the extremely low levels of wastage in our production process. All our drinkware is 100% recyclable at the end of its life cycle into a vast array of different products and in addition to this, where possible we reintroduce recycled material back into our production process. We are always looking at how we can improve this even further, reducing the environmental impact as much as possible.


What next?

The single-use plastics ban in the UK is a landmark step in the right direction towards a cleaner future with less plastic pollution. As we move forward and the public awareness of the impact of single use plastics grows, expanding legislation to cover additional single use plastics may well be expected in the near future. Further advances in recycling may well also bring further opportunities for a more circular economy, enabling us to reuse and recycle more materials and products.


True sustainability however, extends beyond just current policy compliance and future aspirations; it's an active choice that we can make and one which we can make today. BBP has been championing reusable drinkware and catering solutions for nearly three decades with innovative alternatives to single use plastics and fragile glassware. By choosing reusable solutions now, we can be proactive in bringing forward the positive impact on our environment.


Single use, disposable, throw away, whichever way you refer to it, it is harmful to our environment. There is no time like the present for us to evaluate the items we use in everyday life and find alternatives that stop the need for landfill. Whether it's for personal use, within the hospitality industry or healthcare sector, we have a large range of drinkware and catering products to suit various needs and demands. All of our products are reusable and recyclable at end of life. We are proud to play a small part in the huge task of saving the planet and reducing waste.

- World Oceans Day Thursday 8th June.

Each item is manufactured from environmentally friendly, virtually unbreakable polycarbonate.
The plates are designed to sit in a hot cupboard keeping prepared food warm.
The stacking rings and cover are vented to prevent condensation building up.
Everything is boxed in twelve, in stock now and ready to dispatch.

Polycarbonate Chef’s Pinch Bowls

The pinch bowls are available in four different sizes: 2.5”, 3”, 4” and 5”. All are microwave safe and food warmer safe.
Each size is sold in a box of 48 products, but sleeved into stacks of 12, making for a better number for retails sales.
Being made from polycarbonate, the pinch bowls are of course; virtually unbreakable. This is particularly important in commercial kitchens where a glass breakage could end up scattering hazardous shards into food.
As well as being useful for food prep, pinch bowls are suitable for restaurants tables to hold sauces and dips.
We have also found customers ordering the smaller 2.5” bowls which are popular in care homes for dispensing tablet. This is a more environmentally friendly approach than using the single use paper containers.

Each size is in stock and ready to order!


Time for a coffee break?

BBP are proud to announce the release of the new 12oz and 16oz hot drinks mug.
Both sizes are available in unbreakable and environmentally friendly polycarbonate.
The elite material is also a fantastic insulator. This means that the hot contents of the vessel are not uncomfortably transmitted to the outside the mug, so all that heat is kept in, making sure your drink stays warmer for longer.
We have plenty of both sizes and colours in stock, ready for dispatch.

The Catalogue is here!

Reusable is the future
The global war on single use plastic is no secret. We all need to act to help, improve and maintain the environment. Being less wasteful and more efficient is a good start.

Both our Econ Polystyrene and Elite Polycarbonate ranges are 100% reusable.
When they eventually come to the end of their very long life, they are ground into pellets and remanufactured into further goods within other industries. This makes all of our products 100% recyclable.
Polycarbonate is virtually unbreakable so tends to last for years because it doesn't smash when dropped, unlike glass. This is great from a health and safety point of view, a product longevity point of view and a green point of view. Broken glass generally goes in the bin, then onto landfill which is detrimental to the environment.
Plastic, if used in the correct manner can be very environmentally friendly.
