BROOKLYN, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Susty Party, the women-owned business started by two young entrepreneurs who create stylish and disposable tableware that is compostable and made by the blind and visually impaired through National Industries for the Blind, are heating things up this summer with Whole Foods Market, the nation’s leading natural and organic grocer. Whole Foods Market will be the exclusive retailer for Susty Party’s new red and yellow Party Packs - a tableware kit in one box - providing a stylish, eco-friendly and convenient way to celebrate picnics, barbeques, and parties.
Perfect for all-in-one outdoor summer entertaining, Susty Party’s red and yellow Party Packs contain sturdy yet compostable cutlery sets, serve ware and recycled napkins in a classic red gingham and fresh yellow heart motif. Susty Party tableware is also non-toxic and made in North America from renewable resources. By combining matching plates, bowls, cutlery, straws, napkins and cups, the new Party Packs contain everything necessary to fulfill your warm weather celebration needs, from picnicking in the park to hosting a stylish summer grill and cook-out.
ABC’s “The View” recently featured the new red and yellow picnic tableware in a roundup of Whoopi Goldberg’s latest and coolest stuff. Susty Party plates and bowls are also microwave and oven-safe, and were named best tableware for grilling and barbeques by GQ and Real Simple. The founders of Susty Party shared the story behind their products recently on ABC’s “Shark Tank.”
A portion of the proceeds from the new Party Pack line will go to Whole Planet Foundation®, a nonprofit organization that alleviates poverty through microcredit in communities that supply Whole Foods Market stores with products.
“We are thrilled to have Whole Foods Market exclusively carry our new red and yellow Party Packs, as they have been huge supporters of our business and wonderful partners,” said Emily Doubilet, co-founder of Susty Party. “Creating a collection of cute, fun Party Packs that also help support the Whole Planet Foundation makes this an extraordinary opportunity that we are thrilled to be a part of.”
Susty Party is also a recent recipient of Whole Foods Market’s Local Producer Loan Program, a program the retailer started to help small, independent suppliers grow their businesses.
“Whole Foods Market is always looking to support local suppliers like Susty Party who share our commitment to providing our shoppers with the highest-quality, responsibly and sustainably sourced goods,” said Dwight Richmond, global grocery purchasing coordinator for Whole Foods Market. “We look forward to offering our shoppers an exciting new tableware option, just in time for the summer barbeque season.”
Susty Party’s red and yellow Party Packs will be sold exclusively in Whole Foods Market store retailers in the following regions: North Atlantic, Northeast, Northern California, Southern Pacific and Rocky Mountain for a sale price of $19.99.
