According to foreign media reports, the Hoffmaster Group acquired paper straw manufacturer Aardvark Straws from Precision Products Group. This is the only company in the United States that produces paper straws. Because of this acquisition, Hoffmaster will be licensed to operate the Aardvark brand and a paper pipe manufacturing facility in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The machine has a production line that produces customizable paper straws like paper straws christmas

for customers. The company claims that the acquisition will provide Aardvark with additional production resources, so the brand can meet the growing demand for paper straws as consumers and businesses abandon environmentally-friendly plastic straws.
Aardvark's paper straw series are used as fertilizers, are naturally degradable and meet FDA/EU (Food and Drug Administration/EU) requirements. Andy Romjue, president of Hoffmaster's Food and Beverage Department, said: "This is an important acquisition for Hoffmaster because Aardvark straws are an extension of our quality products and add to our range of environmentally friendly products." "In the next few months We will actively increase Aardvark's production capacity to meet the rapidly growing demand for paper straws. We will also conduct a comprehensive review of our business needs and integrate them into the current Hoffmaster infrastructure in the best possible condition." “We are committed to being a reliable source of paper straws in the food service market.”
Dave Hooe, Chief, President of Precision Products Group added: "We are very optimistic about Hoffmaster's acquisition of Aardvark. Their understanding of the food service market and their resources will help the company to provide billions of dollars worth of quality paper straw to restaurants and businesses. We hope to implement these necessary changes to protect our environment." "We are proud of Aardvark's participation and look forward to continuing to succeed with Hoffmaster."
Many large companies in the food and beverage industry have pledged to eliminate the use of plastic straws in the past year because they have to adapt to consumer expectations and legislative changes. In March of this year, the EU claimed that it was considering prohibiting member countries from using plastic straws in the future. Companies such as McDonald's, Diageo and Paul Rica have promised to phase out the use of plastic straws. Previously, Starbucks announced that its store will completely eliminate disposable plastic straws by 2020, replaced by paper, compostable plastics, or straws made from recyclable materials, or with suction cups that do not require straws.
