2013 National Restaurant Association Show

Did you know we will be at the National Restaurant Association trade show in Chicago? You should stop by our booth (#1626) to chat with us about our new Harvest Pro line.

More and more restaurants are moving to a more environmentally friendly option. Our Harvest Pro line combines quality and responsibility to bring you a recyclable, non-absorbent, cut resistant, microwavable clamshell. Produced with 40% natural minerals Harvest Pro offers a great way to reduce your environmental impact, but not reduce the quality. Harvest Pro is also leak resistant because of the double lock closures with tab opening. These containers also come in a vented option for hot foods. These options are everything you could ever want in a hinged container.

Harvest Pro comes in a range of sizes, from the most popular size, 9″ x 7″, general purpose container for burgers and fries or chicken wings, to the 6″ x 6″ sandwich container. If portion control is an issue Harvest Pro offers two three-compartment containers. Having different size options helps with portion control but also keeps your look consistent.

Harvest Pro is:

  • Non-absorbent – your food isn’t soaked into the container. You don’t lose any flavor in your meal.
  • Cut resistant – you don’t end up cutting your table, losing dressing or sauce due to slices in the packaging.
  • Microwave safe – heat up your leftovers without burning your hands, melting the container, or blowing up the microwave.
  • Recyclable – when you are through, toss it in with the rest of your recyclables.

Did you say you wanted something with a design on it? Well Harvest Pro can do that too. We have embossing options available to suit your needs.

Remember Genpak’s Harvest Pro next time you are thinking about being “Responsible, Renewable & Reliable.”

Stop by our booth for a chance to win a Summer Survival Kit containing cutlery, cups, plates, and bowls; everything you need for a party! See you soon.

Every time I tell someone who is not in the food service business, that we are displaying at the NRA show, I have to tell them, no we don’t make rifles, we make plates. NRA stands for National Restaurant Association, and their show is the biggest of its kind. The show, as usual, is in Chicago and it starts this weekend. We’ll be there at booth 415.

When you do stop by, tell the Genpakers at the booth you heard about it on the Genpak blog and ask to sign up to win the iPod Touch we are giving away.

What you’ll see at our booth is:

  • Harvest Fiber compostable foods ervice packaging
  • Harvest Starch hybrid plates, bowls and hinged containers
  • Products made with up to 50% post consumer recycled content
  • Microwave safe products that are up to 30% lighter than the bumpy bulky product are competition is peddling
  • Product endorsed by the Green Restaurant Association
  • Our brand new line of Supermarket Containers (ask about our white options)
  • Cutting edge prototype food packaging designs such as tamper evident packaging
  • And of course the best hinged take out packaging available today

It’s all state-of-the-art, cutting edge food packaging on display. What better way to spend your weekend? Stroll around the show, stop by the Genpak booth and if you are luck and have connections, go watch the Blackhawks attempt to get into the Stanley Cup finals.

See you there.
