Have you ever noticed the increasing gourmet options now located in the deli section of your local grocer? How about the fact there are now more and more options in the deli take-out section, beyond meats and cheeses? Your local grocery store is now a gourmet food court. Take-out options have matured.

As we all live busy lives, our nutrition or urge to clear hinged deli containerscook may start to dwindle. And to top it off, it’s SUMMER! You’d rather be doing anything else besides cooking. So why not stop at your local grocer for take-out. Pizza, rotisserie chicken, containers of salads, pasta and meatballs, fresh fish, or some lasagna. More and more deli sections are expanding to include new concepts such as cook to order stations. Mexican bars featuring tacos, enchiladas, chili rellenos and other Mexican specialties, or Asian woks featuring your favorite kung pao scallops. Your options are becoming increasingly upscale, offering you a better food experience.

With all that being said, the gourmet options you are purchasing for your family needs to go in a take-out container that’s going to support the weight, heat or cold, and have a secure closure to avoid messes in the car. At Genpak, we produce the best deli containers, hinged containers, microwave safe containers as well as compostable food packaging options.

Our hinged deli containers display cold foods wonderfully. They feature a full 360° leak resistant seal and a convenient hinged lid that can be opened and closed multiple times. They are also produced using 30% post consumer recycled content and are #1 curb-side recyclable.

Compostable food containersWe have the absolute widest selection of take out, foam hinged containers available today. Whether the application is for the salad bar or those gourmet cook to order stations, a foam hinged container is the most economical choice that can be made.

microwave safe containersFor food products than require a heat lamp or must be warmed up at home, go with our excellent selection of microwave safe food packaging. We have rounds and rectangles with one, two or three compartment options.
