• Short Summary

    Paper tableware is made at a factory then used for serving food.

  • Description

    Dunstable, Bedfordshire.

    M/S of four people sitting around a dinner table with various pieces of paper crockery before them; one of the women stands up and gathers up the paper tablecloth and crockery; she puts the whole lot into a bin in the kitchen.

    We then see several shots of paper doilies and fairy cake cups being made; sheets of printed, patterned paper comes through huge rollers. A group of people sit around a table and discuss the pattern of paper plates; a designer works on a rosebud pattern; various shots of paper plates being made and coming off rollers in the factory. Paper cups are made on the machines.

    Several good shots of food being served out by dinner ladies; fruit cocktail goes into paper bowls; fish and chips onto paper plates. A couple sit at a table and eat with disposable crockery and cutlery from a check paper tablecloth.

    Note: one of the factory workers seems to have a logo reading 'Cross Paperware' on her overalls.
