How safe is your tableware?

MANILA, Philippines – At home or at fast food chains, plastic tableware is used — but how can you be very sure that it’s safe?

Melawares is one of the most trusted brands of tableware from CDC Manufacturing Corporation. CDC Manufacturing Corporation made sure that its melamine tableware is of premium quality and safe for the family.

Melawares only uses imported and 100 percent  melamine in the making of its tableware. Other plastic products may use urea as raw material. The difference between the two materials is that when melamine sets, it doesn’t migrate or “contaminate” the food we eat, while urea mixes with food and may cause health hazards, particularly in the digestive and respiratory systems.

Melamine is also durable, stain resistant and heat resistant. Urea, on the other hand, is a material of substandard quality and is vulnerable to stains, less durable and less heat resistant. For hot food, it will be a disadvantage and may cause substandard plastic tableware to chip or melt and become deformed.

The company will soon launch new and eco-friendly products, a testament to its innovative and visionary business and product development philosophy.

“We understand the discerning requirements of Filipinos when it comes to their tableware needs, which is why we continue to develop and design our products exclusively for them,” Chriselda Chua, marketing manager for CDC Manufacturing Corporation, said.

CDC Manufacturing Corporation has four brands aside from Melawares, the classic brand that carries high-quality melamine tableware products. There is Bestware, Urban Kitchen, and Perfect Dining, and is also the leading manufacturer of customized dinnerware for Quick Service Restaurants serving some of the biggest names in the food industry.
