To assist with this transition at our events, Council is creating a list of approved disposable sustainable food packaging suppliers that event stallholders can use.

This list of suppliers who are honouring Council’s commitment to reducing single-use plastics will be provided to stallholders at Council events. At City of Ryde's Granny Smith Festival there are over 200 stallholders in attendance at this flagship event.
