Choose to source high quality, environmentally friendly and locally produced paper straws and paper tubes.


We offer excellent quality and produce according to a sustainable development approach

We are one of the pioneer companies to actually produce paper straws in Europe and not only to import from Asia or America.

Our history

Governments ban usage of plastic straws by end of 2020 all over Europe. Other countries follow this tendency, like India (Mumbai, Maharashtra), Mexico, China …

Drink straws produced in Asia out of paper or bamboo to be shipped with mainly air to Europe, is as little sustainable as producing plastic straws or straws in bioplastics in Europe.

The structure of Black System is an alliance of independent companies : Factories produce straws locally in different places in Europe. Black System Europe ensures management, marketing and data processing.Black System is aimed at hotels, bars, restaurants and catering companies wishing to source high quality, environmentally friendly and locally produced paper straws.

The production

Our sites comply with the regulations of the food industry, even if this is not required by law. All our employees apply food quality and comply with strict hygiene rules during production. We offer straws of a quality level far above the market average, thanks to the choice of materials we use.

The factory is in the process of ISO 9001 and Food Safety System Certification (FSSC) 22000 certification (equivalent to BRC and HACCP). This includes automatic traceability of each production batch – from the raw material to the customer.
