Solution-Based Packaging that Greatly Impacts Consumer Lifestyles

June 26th, 2018 RSS feed icon

In the world of “to-go”, there are constant changes being made to food packaging, restaurant design, and overall operations in order 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 3 modifications to our food packaging that greatly shapes the modern day consumer lifestyle, helping save time and money.

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 and APET products. Our 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.

Stackable feature

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 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 and anti-fog feature, which is found in our new black and clear ProView container, which reduces condensation for a clear view. 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.

Genpak products are still in the mix as you can spot our sustainable packaging across several establishments. Our products offer market flexibility as a powerhouse to consumer needs. Genpak meets this demand with reputable innovations like ProView, Smart Set Pro, Clear Hinged Foodservice Containers, and Oven Ready Food & Bakery Trays to propel foodservice industry growth.

Stay locked in for the next line up of features that define convenience for today’s consumer lifestyle.

What role does food separating or fork stacking play when enjoying a full plated meal?  The answer depends not on what you eat, but how you eat it.

As a southern-cuisine fanatic, nothing shouts “comfort food” to me more than a plate of turkey, macaroni & cheese, collard greens, mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet potato dessert, and a fully baked roll. I don’t have a problem with the some of the food touching each other. But here’s where my simple-classic meal gets complicated: the moment the juices from my collard greens and the runny gravy invade my freshly baked roll, then somehow gets trapped under my mac and cheese. That’s when I find myself having a 5-second moment of silence as I try to process the atrocity of my food drowning in a puddle of liquid.

But no need for sympathy. The worst-case scenario involves the food separatist who absolutely hates when their food touches. This fear can be identified as brumotactillophobia. It’s a mild form of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), so most people who find themselves in this category simply enjoy each food item individually. Anyone with this phobia believes that food mixing & mingling is an utter corruption, and it takes away the control of how they want to enjoy their mealtime. Unless we’re talking about foods that are sandwiched between two burger buns, wrapped in a zesty burrito, or even tossed up to make a fresh salad (in other words, foods that are meant to be combined), then people with this problem prefer their appetizing meals, separately.

The cure is in the close-off.

Every consumer has a little brumotacillophobia depending on the meal, and Genpak’s Close-Off Food Containers are the best way to prevent any messy spills or clashing between food items. Since consumers are looking up to the foodservice industry to deliver the best food experience, the off-premise dining market is a hotspot for close-off food containers. They are perfect for take-outs, third-party delivery, and any other off-premise occasions. To condense your search for them, the containers are available in a free Close-Off Sample Kit, which can be found here. Check out our Close-Off To-Go Containers video below to see the food packaging at a glance.

Goodbye brumotacillophobia! Genpak’s Close-Off Food Containers are the cure!
