Stagione® is a pack for all seasons, providing the ultimate packaging solution for hot, chilled, and delivered food.
Core to the versatility of the Stagione® range is the variety of sizes and shapes in our fourteen strong portfolio. The range is leakproof with high barrier properties, whilst still retaining its sustainable credentials.
Our range is made from recyclable coated boards, most of which are FSC® certified, answering the call for sustainable packaging that works across the supply chain.
We offer tight-fitting lid options including PP and PE lined paperboard, PP, and rPET which are suitable for hot and cold foods. They are also comfortable to hold and eat from, and can easily be opened, closed and re-closed if needed.
Their sturdy construction makes them ideal for use in a kitchen, as well as on a production line. They are also nestable when empty, and stackable when lidded, which means they have excellent space efficiency in transport, storage, and display.
Stagione® for Hot Food-To-Go
Stagione® is ideal for a variety of uses across the hot food-to-go market.
Our PP coated pots, bowls, and lids have high-quality PP coatings which means they have exceptional barrier qualities that can cope with wet, acidic, and oily food types. The PP lining also makes them suitable for use in hot hold cabinets (up to 85°C) and for microwave heating by back-of-house teams, or by customers.
The PP lined lids are tight fitting and vented, so retain heat whilst letting out condensation. This helps to keep food hot and crisp and to maintain optimum food condition on-shelf or during transport.
Our Stagione® PP coated pots can also be utilised for oven reheating*, subject to specific guidelines and use cases. Our Stagione® PE coated pots can be used for hot food that is to be eaten straight away or stored in a heated display.
*certified for specific oven parameters, we advise trialing with product contents.
Stagione® for Chilled Food-To-Go
Stagione® offers the perfect solution for chilled food-to-go.
The natural kraft artisan bases provide an ideal backdrop for chilled dishes such as premium salads with hero protein, vegan poke style dishes, chilled pastas, and more.
With excellent barrier properties, our Stagione® pots and bowls can cope with dressings and keep food fresh when paired with tight-fitting lids. Our rPET anti-mist lids are specifically for packaging chilled foods and stay crystal clear in chilled cabinets.
Our Stagione® PE coated pots provide an alternative for customers that do not require the added barrier or ovenability of our PP coated options.
Customer uses include seasonal salads, antipasti, and delicious, chilled desserts. Our Stagione® ranges are certified for freezer use and some of our customers are using Stagione® for ice cream.
Stagione® for Delivered Food
In the delivered food market, having packaging that represents your brand and delivers food in the same condition it leaves the kitchen is essential. Stagione® offers a solution that gives food a superb value perception with its unique design.
In addition to its high-quality look and feel, it has features that lend itself to the delivered market. These include heat retention for the delivery journey, secure stacking in delivery bags, leakproof bases, and tight-fitting lid options.
The bases can easily be labelled to add tamper proofing and showcase your brand.
Stagione® for Food Manufacturers and Packers
Stagione® is a proven product in the retail marketplace, with manufacturers and packer processers selecting it to showcase a variety of food types.
Its versatility across the supply chain means our Stagione® PP coated pots can be used in chilled cabinets, hot-hold cabinets, freezer cabinets, microwaves, and ovens (subject to specific parameters). Stagione® is therefore an ideal proposition for numerous needs.
As shelf space in the retail market is at a premium, the unique Stagione® shape gives superb on-shelf optimisation in terms of stacking.
Its sturdy design also lends itself to efficient in-line filling for food manufacturers and packers. The range is easy to heat seal with lidding film, offering longer shelf-life potential and superb tamper proofing.
We have created bespoke versions of Stagione® for our customers, including custom sizes and full pack branding, helping brands to stand out on-shelf. We can also support customers in the development of print design and sleeving and labelling if required.
