Vegware uses compostable, plant-based materials, such as waste from sugar cane, to make its range of more than 250 different types of cutlery, cups and takeaway packaging. Its clients include contract caterers, food distributors and high street delicatessens. Exports grew to £2.4m last year thanks to strong demand from eco-conscious consumers in the US, South Africa, Australasia and the Middle East. The Edinburgh firm was founded in 2006 by managing director Joe Frankel, 40.
