About

Our Story

Founded by Alan Yu and Marvin Cheng, Karat paper and plastic disposable products are manufactured by Lollicup® USA, Inc. Established in 2004 and based in Chino, CA, Karat specializes in food and beverage packaging products such as paper cups, plastic cups, food containers, dessert cups, cup lids, and more. Our products may be mixed and matched to fulfill diverse needs and budgets, as well as be matched with most major brands such as IP, Dixie®, Sweetheart, and Solo®, allowing our clients to effortlessly switch in between brands. In an effort to be more environmentally friendly, Karat Earth, a plant-based line of compostable products including cups, straws, and utensils, was developed. Karat and Karat Earth also offer custom printing for cups, containers, and napkins for a personalized touch.

Our Mission

At Karat, we make it our mission to provide our customers with well-engineered and high-quality disposable and compostable goods at the most competitive prices. Whether you are a big food service and beverage leader or a small neighborhood café, we offer the same top-grade products and high-quality service, along with one of the fastest turnaround production times in the industry.
