Leading Provider of Eco Friendly & Biodegradable Food Catering Packaging Solutions for the UK

Pioneering Sustainable Packaging Solutions Since 1947

A Family Legacy Built on Quality and Sustainability

For over 75 years, Donovan Bros has been a leading provider of catering packaging solutions for the UK. Our story began as a family-run business specialising in paper bags, and that heritage of quality and commitment has remained at the core of everything we do. Today, we’re proud to be at the forefront of the sustainable packaging movement, offering eco-friendly options that meet the needs of businesses and the environment alike.

The world is becoming increasingly aware of the environmental impact of traditional materials used within this industry. At Donovan Bros, we offer a wide range of premium sustainable alternatives that never compromise on functionality or style.


Our compostable products are made from plant-based materials and are designed to decompose naturally in a commercial composting facility, turning into nutrient-rich soil.


These products break down over time into harmless elements, minimising their impact on landfills.

Recycled Content:

We use a significant amount of recycled materials, reducing our reliance on virgin resources and promoting a circular economy.
