These Vegware Compostable clear portion cups and lids are great for use for any tasting event or storage of small spices, nuts, dressings, or dips. They are durable and the lids fit snug. Safe for food, but you can use to store anything!

Vegware portion cup lids are completely compostable and made from polylactic acid (PLA), a bioplastic produced from corn and other natural starches. These items are ideal for foods up to 120F.

Our smallest pots and lid combinations come in 1oz (with a lid), and 2oz, and 4oz sizes (sharing another lid).


  • 100% compostable
  • Made from plant based starch
  • Light and strong
  • Safe and non-toxic

  • The compostable portion cup lids have a smooth finish and are as light and strong as their oil-based plastic counterparts. By contrast though, they are made from annually-renewable resources, are fully compostable, and generate fewer greenhouse gasses during production. These compostable PLA containers are an eco-friendly alternative to traditional disposables. Made from corn-based PLA renewable resources, they are completely compostable within 50-100 days in commercial composting facilities. Superior in strength and performance, non-toxic, and clear in color, these portion cup lids are the perfect solution for your food and storage needs.

    *Returns of unopened cases are subject to a 25% restocking fee, and return shipping costs are the responsibility of the customer. Please contact us for return authorization and correct shipping address before sending.


    Compostable disposables are designed to be recycled in an industrial composting facility together with food waste. That means there’s no need for sorting, and the compostable cup, lid, burger box, knife and napkin can all go together without removing the ketchup and leftover chips. An extra bonus is that once food and disposables share one bin, other dry recycling bins are cleaner and easier to recycle.

    What is Vegware made from?

    Vegware makes catering disposables from plants, not plastic. After use, they are designed for industrial composting with food waste. Vegware replaces conventional plastics with various plant-based materials. For example, PLA is a compostable material made from plants. PLA replaces the plastic in coffee cup linings or sandwich windows, and it’s the clear material in our cold cups and deli containers. Our hot cup lids and cutlery are made of a high-heat version of PLA.

    Recycled sugarcane fibre is another practical material we use for our clamshells, plates and bowls. Known as bagasse, it performs really well, keeping heat in but not trapping condensation. Plus, it’s renewable, a recycled by-product of the sugar industry.

    Do plant-based materials work as well as plastic?

    Absolutely. In the early days there were limitations, but not anymore. Cafés can be confident that their plant-based disposables will function perfectly. We only use water-based or vegetable-based inks for our custom printing, and the print finish is great.

    What’s the difference between biodegradable and compostable?

    Same process, different breakdown speeds. Forget the term biodegradable, as it tells us nothing about timescales (wood is biodegradable, but a log cabin can stand for generations). Compostable means something can break down in under 12 weeks and is therefore suitable for industrial composting. Make sure your disposables supplier has compostability certification – that’s the real guarantee.

    What’s the point if I can’t compost it?

    The earth has finite resources. Disposables are used for such a short time, so it makes sense to switch to renewable materials, reserving conventional plastics for applications where they can’t be easily replaced. Lots of people enjoy using plant-based materials, knowing they are a simple way to reduce carbon and help their business go green.

    But here’s the exciting part, by choosing compostables, foodservice businesses can actively drive changes in US recycling. The more compostables there are in use, the more we can work with the waste sector to extend collections US-wide.

    Vegware – good for your food, good for the environment.
