Takeaway food boxes: new biodegradable products

Group Shot_2Regular readers may have noticed a trend with most of the new products we’ve launched this year; they’ve all been biodegradable environmentally friendly alternatives to popular existing products. Today’s product update is no exception! We’ve got an extensive range of disposable takeaway food boxes; these are available as a few main varieties:

  • White folding food boxes (no1 – no8)
  • Brown kraft folding food boxes (no1 – no8)
  • Round smart serve noodle boxes (16oz – 32oz)
  • Square folding noodle boxes (16oz – 32oz)

We’ve just taken delivery of biodegradable versions of the 16oz and 26oz round noodle boxes, as well as the 26oz square folding noodle boxes. These are the most popular items from the takeaway noodle box range so it made sense to offer a biodegradable alternative for businesses looking to switch to biodegradable stock.

Similar to the rest of our range, the main difference with this range is that the polyethylene plastic lining is replaced with a PLA cornstarch based lining. This means that the lining will break down naturally, unlike items with a plastic-based lining.

To clearly identify these items as a biodegradable product they carry our green stripe branding, the items themselves are natural unbleached kraft paper.

As always, samples of these new items are available on request.

Product Spotlight: Takeaway Cardboard Food Boxes

We supply a range of folding food boxes made from cardboard; these are marketed primarily for use with takeaway foods like Noodles for example. What many customers perhaps don’t realise is that these ‘Smart Serve’ boxes are actually very versatile products with a huge range of other and less well-known uses.

Our Food Pails are available in 3 main sizes, these are 16oz (small), 26oz (medium) and 32oz (large) – the most common sizes you’d come across in the takeaway market. As the items are made from plain white card they’re not restricted to takeaway foods, some other common uses include:

  • Individually boxed cupcakes
  • Party favours at Birthdays
  • Take-home boxes at restaurants (unfinished meals)
  • Pick and mix containers

Customers have also been known to brand these for their own uses (product promotions or special occasions) with their own stickers, or they simply allow kids to decorate their own boxes at parties.

The boxes themselves have a number of names:

  • Food pails
  • Folding Food Boxes
  • Smart Serve Boxes
  • Noodle Boxes

Assuming these are referring to a round-based product, these are just alternative ways of describing the same item. For customers hunting for appropriate food-packaging for an unusual product or one-off occasion, don’t be fooled by the description of “Noodle Box” – they are in fact fantastic general purpose containers and not at all restricted to takeaway usage.

Our round food pails actually have a lot in common with regular hot drink paper cups; the bases feature the same construction giving our food pails superb rigidity. This and the inner PE coating makes the product well suited to hot or oily takeaway foods.
