In the world of “to-go,” constant changes are being made to food packaging, restaurant design, and overall operations to achieve a consumer-focused experience. Some changes aren’t always so complex, but convenient- and that’s a characteristic that Genpak lives by. Here are 4 must-have food packaging features that significantly shape the modern-day consumer lifestyle.
Close-off food packaging
Compartmented containers are always convenient for side portioned food items, which require separating. Years ago, we at Genpak launched our first close-off container with the 203CO, and have since translated that feature over to our microwave-safe products. Our ProView close-off solution has addressed food migration concerns by adding compartments in the base of a container and the lid. We are capable of promoting zero food migration with durable packaging that reigns superior against our competitors.
There is nothing worse than carrying multiple containers, only to have them collapse after taking a few steps or when placing them in the car. With the emergence of optional take-out family meals that can be enjoyed at home, work, or school, Genpak’s stackable feature helps consumer meals go the extra mile. We have engineered our stackable containers in such a way that will secure multiple containers in place for portability and carrying with ease.
Perhaps everyone loves food right off the grill, and it’s even better when enjoyed anywhere, everywhere, and at any time. We’ve caught the drift with our vented-lid, which is found in our new black and clear ProView container. Everyone wants to see their food, especially when it’s fresh off the grill. So, this feature makes it even more convenient for both the operator and the consumer by providing food authenticity and order accuracy. Clover is produced from premium polypropylene material, Clover™ offers the versatility of a microwave-safe container and can be vented while stacked.
Sustainability is a high priority for consumers. In fact, studies from the International Foodservice Manufacturers Association (IFMA) have shown that consumers will even go as far as voicing their displeasure to their favorite restaurants if packaging is perceived as unsafe for the environment. Recyclable items, like Smart Set Pro, ProView, and Clover send a message to consumers that you are thinking about the future.
Stay locked in for the next line up of features that define convenience for today’s consumer lifestyle.
