About Us

Formed in 2005, the Bridge-Gate Alliance group offers a premium line of disposable dinnerware made from natural fibers. Our goal is to produce high-end compostable products as an alternative to flimsy compostable items, polystyrene foam, paper and plastic.

Initially, Bridge-Gate worked with other manufacturers to design a line of compostable serving ware made of bagasse (sugar cane by-products).  Bagasse was a popular natural crop source at the time, but over the years, we realized that wheat by-products provided a better base material. It is more durable, lightweight and compostable and the manufacturing process uses less water and lowers the overall carbon footprint.

Bridge Gate ProductsWe opened our own production facility in 2009 located near wheat fields to minimize energy use and transportation costs. We also invested in a unique biopulping process to ensure our products are thinner and lower weight, but sturdier and more durable.

As a result, Bridge-Gate has a full line of food carry-out products and includes plates, bowls, platters and hingeware. We out-perform other serving ware, as well as surpass all relevant tests and regulations for compostable products:

  • Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) Certified
  • Exceeds standards from FDA and ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) ASTM D6868 and ASTM D6400.
  • Exceeds GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) regulations
  • Accepted by Cedar Grove (considered the toughest standard for compostable) 

In addition, Bridge-Gate’s serving ware is freezer-safe and microwave-safe, and able to hold hot liquids, greasy foods and frozen items.  We’re not only one of the best performing dinnerware on the market, but also the most earth friendly:  petroleum-free, non-toxic, non-allergenic, renewable and compostable.

Bridge-Gate has a nationwide distribution system that makes our products available throughout North America. Bridge-Gate’s customers include foodservice operators, distributors, cash and carry warehouses and retail grocers.

With the growing importance of sustainable resources to the food industry, Bridge-Gate is committed to providing products that uphold the highest standards of quality and reflect our dedication to the environment.
