Covington, KY – May 17, 2019 – Waddington North America (WNA), a Novolex brand announced today

the introduction of CutlereaseTM, a new single piece cutlery utensil dispensing system. The patented,

innovative system is designed to provide self-service patrons with a convenient and hygienic dining

Restaurant Association Show at McCormick Place, Chicago, IL, May 18-21.

The Cutlerease cutlery dispensing system offers improved hygiene, reduced waste and incomparable

versatility for front- and back-of-the-house operations. Tape-tabbed cutlery refill packs offer sanitary

handling for fast and easy pick up and restocking into dispenser cartridges. The dispensing system has

no trays or levers which reduces accumulation and transfer of germs and bacteria. Handle-first delivery

maintains sanitation. Single piece dispensing reduces waste. The adaptable design of the dispensing

system gives operators the flexibility to insert cutlery types that meet their business needs. Cutlerease’s

compact footprint offers significant counter-front space savings over other brands and reduces refill

frequency by holding up to 360 pieces of cutlery. No plugs or batteries are required giving operators the

flexibility to place Cutlerease where patrons are best served.

Later this year Eco-Products, a Novolex brand and leading provider of foodservice products made from

renewable and recycled resources, will launch a line of cutlery that can be used in the same Cutlerease

dispensing system.


“Our goal has always been to provide a breadth of options for foodservice operators looking for

environmentally responsible alternatives,” said Gary Muczko, VP of Sales for Eco-Products. “The

availability of the Cutlerease dispenser coupled with cutlery that is made from compostable materials can
