About Us

Meet the makers of the Chinet® brand.

The Leaders in Disposable Tableware

The Chinet® brand was built on a strong foundation of American innovation. The fiber company that would eventually develop Chinet paper plates was the first to patent a reliable disposable paper plate with strength and durability. That early spirit of innovation led to the development of the world’s first leak-resistant line of disposable paper dinnerware, what you know today as Chinet® Classic White™ plates, bowls, and napkins.

Not only has the Chinet brand pioneered strength and durability in disposable tableware, we’ve also led the way in environmental sustainability. When the United States environmentalist movement surged in the 1970s, we were already using recycled fiber in some of our applications. By the 1980s, Chinet paper products were being made with 100 percent recycled content and still are to this day.

Today, the Chinet brand is made by Huhtamaki, Inc. and headquartered in De Soto, Kansas. While we’ve enjoyed being the go-to entertaining choice for many generations, we’re always looking forward. We’re working to continue to bring you the kind of innovative products everyone wants to gather around. So let’s raise a Chinet® Cut Crystal® stemless wine glass and continue to celebrate together.

Proudly Made in the USA for Over 90 Years

We may be headquartered in the Heartland, but Chinet products are manufactured all over the United States and have been since day one.
