Eating is not a chore. Sometimes we may forget to eat because we are busy doing other things, but food helps us find nourishment every day. We are fortunate to have so many options at our fingertips. Restaurants have been seeing tons of changes these days. Not only are menus becoming more diverse in flavor profiles, but the introduction of off-premise dining has changed the way people eat. Where a person eats is now limitless. More consumers are ordering food for delivery than ever before.
Packaging plays a key role in safeguarding foods during transportation. The restaurant experience is no longer just inside those four walls. Dining experiences are happening at homes, offices, outdoors, and in cars. Food is on the move.
Let’s talk about specific takeout options.
Crispy foods are best served in a vented container. Vents allow steam to escape saving the food from moisture seeping back in.
Long delivery times plague everyone. Microwave-safe containers are great for items that need to be reheated.
People are busy so encourage grab and go applications with portion-controlled packaging and
Stackable containers, like our Harvest Fiber and ProView, keep foods from sliding around during transport.
Most consumers aren’t a fan of cross contamination. Keep foods separated with close-off containers.
Sustainability is high on everyone’s agenda. Items made from natural materials, like Harvest Fiber, and items that are recyclable, like AD Deli containers and Smart Set Pro send a message to consumers that you are thinking about the future.
Foam hinged containers still have the best thermal properties to keep foods at optimum temperature longer.
