Sustainability is a high priority in the packaging industry, which can be found in our sculptural clamshell design in the A8801 and AS8802. The rim around top of the container allows for easy stacking and creates shelf appeal. It contains both a secure button-lock closure and our popular Secure Seal® feature, to shield oxygen and maintain freshness of food.

How Genpak’s Microwavable Containers Protect The Environment

August 30th, 2017

Source reduction is becoming widely acceptable in our society in hopes of eliminating waste and protecting the environment. Manufacturers are taking advantage of this solution using the three R’s of sustainability: reduce, reuse, and recycle. This 3-step process generates new paths explored by Gen Xers and Millennials as they are more versed in saving the environment through various source reduction programs.

Microwavable Containers that protect the environment

Smart Set Pro containers are recyclable, reusable, and microwave safe.

Fortunately, this product effortlessly alleviates these concerns due to its ecological resources, while also being recognized as BPI certified compostable.

An exclusive snap-it closure system, moisture resistant technology, and stacking rims for multiple to-go meals are vital features that upgrade the HF270’s catering abilities for some of your largest food choices. You’ll be able to eat big and travel light depending on if you want to grab-n-go, dine-in, or preserve it in the fridge. In other words, it redefines versatility.

Home Delivery Explosion Continues – Are you ready?

March 15th, 2017

The home delivery explosion isn’t ending any time soon. Are you ready? Every restaurant should be at least thinking about making this option accessible to their communities. On-demand food service delivery brings food directly from your restaurant to the customers, driven through mobile apps and online ordering.

Millennials are driving change in many different areas, food service included. As you might have guessed, Millennials are tech savvy, typically using up to two or three different devices each day. They are using said devices to connect with friends and companies, to research and review products, and to place food orders for delivery or take-out. They already love coming in to your restaurant, so why not connect to them when they don’t feel like eating out.

The restaurant industry is a roughly $490 billion market. Food delivery makes up 43% of that marketing and is continuing to grow. Engage with your loyal customers in and out of your restaurant. Millennials and Baby Boomers, alike, want great food at their finger tips.

RestaurantBusiness.com has a great article about how to get started with food delivery. There are lots of questions to ask before you get started in offering your food for delivery. Which service should I use, how will this change my business? Are we prepared to take on the increase in take-out orders? Do we have the right packaging for full meals to travel?

Genpak is here to help. Take a look at our home delivery video to get free samples, request a call, and learn more.

Food Packaging for Subs

May 18th, 2016

A quick search of the data base from our friends at Technomics shows that, of the top 10 selling sandwich shops, 3 of them actually have the word “sub” somewhere in their name and 8 of them specialize in making subs. I’ll include a Philly Cheese Stake in that category. Switching the search criteria to show the fastest growing sandwich shops, has similar results. 4 of the top 5 fastest sub and hoagie containers - 26600growing concepts specialize in making subs.

That probably does not come as a surprise to most people. We all have our favorite type made at our favorite shop. Be it one of these fast emerging chains or your locally owned sub shop, nothing fills the void like a freshly made hoagie. What may surprise you though is the packaging options for these large sandwiches is somewhat limited…by our competitors. At Genpak we have recognized the need for options as not all hoagies are made alike. While the others offer two or maybe three options, we offer up to fifteen different configurations that could comfortably hug your hoagie. And that’s just counting up our hinged options. If you consider two piece packaging, that number jumps.

Not only do we offer a wide rage of sizes, we offer them across three different substrates. From traditional to hybrid to compostable materials, we are sure to have the size and type of packaging you need.

If you are not sure which container would work best or need help sorting through all of our options, just drop us a line and one of our friendly packaging pros will help you sort it out and even get you free samples to test.

It is our commitment to become Your Food Packaging Company!
