Plastic plates aren't very expensive. The disposable kind are very cheap indeed, and even the washable kind are cheap.
Go buy some! Spend ten dollars, or a hundred rupees, or whatever it is. Put them in your kitchen. Ask your colleagues to use them. Respectfully explain to them that you're trying to keep the distracting noise down. See if it makes a difference.
If it does make a difference, ask your company's office manager to consider replacing the ceramic ones with plastic ones. You will have experimental evidence in favor of the change: a strong argument. In many offices it isn't HR that deals with stuff like this, it's the same people who handle ordering of supplies, cleaning, etc.
If your experiment fails -- maybe because your colleagues dislike the plastic, or maybe because it's actually something else that distracts you -- then at least you tried. You can then change your spots during break time or wear a headset.
