Consumers want sustainable solutions that keep food hotter for longer, are suitable for reheating, and that represent their brand through excellent food presentation.
Piping hot food is served at street food establishments, events, and festivals. Packs need to be easy and safe to fill, greaseproof and/or leakproof, comfortable to hold and easy to eat from. Food types have expanded from traditional fish or chicken and chips; there are now an array of cuisines providing a variety of hot food-to-go.
There is nothing more synonymous with instant serve hot food-to-go packaging than the clamshell. With a recyclable board and quick clip closure, our clamshells are perfect for busy back of house environments.
Our multi-food box ranges are excellent examples of leakproof packaging, due to their webbed design. These packs can cope with wet, acidic, and oily food types such as curries and noodles and retain their rigidity for food on-the-go. We offer recyclable and compostable material options to suit available waste streams.
Hot Food-to-Go Packaging Display
Hot hold food has exploded in popularity, with hot cabinet displays becoming commonplace in supermarkets, forecourts and even vending machines. Hot hold packaging can have complex usage requirements including freezing after packing and processing, back of house regeneration, display in hot cabinets, and still retaining sustainable credentials and food safety standards.
Our recyclable, polypropylene lined, microwave soup pots give great stability and have tight-fitting paperboard or polypropylene lids. Food from these pots can be eaten at point of purchase, after being stored in a hot-hold cabinet, or can be reheated later when consumers return home.
Microwave and Oven Heating
Retailers need sustainable packs that can be heated, from chilled or ambient, at home in a microwave and/or oven, and that can still be part of a recycling waste stream. Material choices for boards, coatings, and lids are key here.
Our Same-Day Cookpac® solutions can be used in hot-hold and can be reheated in the microwave or oven. This range also stacks well, so provides space efficiency in display.
Versatility and Sustainability
The demands on packaging are ever increasing, from sustainable sourcing and reducing plastic, to packs that work at all stages of the supply chain.
The market demands sustainable, all-purpose packaging, such as our award-winning Stagione® range. It has a unique shape, and a rigid, rolled-top construction so it can easily be lidded, or heat sealed. Its kraft, FSC® certified material creates a strong on-shelf impact and is recyclable to OPRL 2023 guidelines.
