What restraints the growth of the foodservice disposables market?

" Limited shelf life can impede the market growth”

Foodservice disposables such as paper-based products have a finite shelf life, making them susceptible to degradation and spoilage over time. This limitation can pose challenges for inventory management, as businesses must monitor stock levels carefully to avoid wastage. The risk of expired or damaged disposables can lead to additional costs and inefficiencies in supply chain management. As a restraint, businesses may need to find ways to optimize inventory and minimize wastage of such perishable disposables.
