Product Qualities


1. Biodegradable & Compostable
Tambul leaf plates are completely natural. The arecanut sheaths completely decompose into the soil within a period of 50-60 days. They can be used as organic compost in peoples gardens after using them as plates in your parties. These are green organic products which are much needed to protect the environment.
2. Natural & Attractive appearance
There are no colours or any external material used to make these products. Water and heat are the only two components used in the production process. The colours of the sheaths are whitish and creamish with natural brown stripes in some which give them a wonderful appeal. Infact many users don’t feel like throwing them after using them.
3. Hygienic & Chemical Free
The sheaths are washed properly with fresh water during the production process. They are also heated to temperatures above 90 degree centigrade which ensures that they are completely germ free. Infact many people having knowledge of ayurveda claim that the natural qualities of the arecanut sheath are very healthy, which makes them more preferable than any other disposable plates. Our quality control procedures, right from raw material collection to packaging, ensure high level of hygiene even without adding any chemicals.
4. Sturdy & Light
The dimensional stability of the product is amazing. It is as light as any other disposable plate like styrofoam and as sturdy as melanin or glass crockery. The extra edges of the products make it very comfortable for holding. This is probably the only disposable plate available which can be used in buffet parties.
5. Liquid Holding Capacity
Even though the material is light yet it is 2-3mm thick which enables it to hold liquids very easily. It can hold liquid items for 2-3 hours without affecting its shape. Thus it is very comfortable to have and serve gravy items in these plates. One can also serve hot food in it without any worry. Though disposable yet Tambul leaf plates have all the qualities of a regular plate.


6. Microwave & Refrigerator Safe
One of the big advantages of these plates is that they can be used in the microwave and the refrigerator. You can heat the food in the microwave and serve it directly in them. Similarly after using the plates one can directly store the remaining food in the refrigerator. 

7. Generating Rural Livelihoods
If you are using these plates then you are directly generating employment for thousands of people in rural areas. In TPMC the rural people are not only supplying the raw material, producing the plates, managing the whole business but they are also the owners of TPMC. They are not only working hard to make these quality products but also have taken the risk to supply it all over the world.
8. Product of North East India
These products are being made in the villages of North East India. Most of mainland India and rest of the world believe that the people of North east are very violent as only news about insurgency and terrorism come in the national media. Thus through this initiative the people of North East want to showcase to the world that their perceptions are wrong and how people of this region can make world class product in commercially feasible manner.
