Properly packaging your meal for delivery is critical to guest satisfaction and safety when providing a takeaway service, especially when using third-party services. Therefore, disposable take away box
has become an important part of the operation of the takeaway business. While there are several different considerations in choosing the best takeout box
, we recommend starting with the following features that are key to maintaining food safety, quality and appearance during delivery.
Disposable take away box needs to be sealed
Customers have raised their health and safety standards as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. And that includes food packaging. Whether your product comes in a brown bag, plastic container or cup, once it leaves the kitchen, it should be sealed until it reaches its final destination. Takeaway boxes
should have one or more security barriers that, when opened, clearly show consumers that tampering has occurred or that the product has been altered in some way. The most common types of tamper-proof packaging include strips, stickers, and seals. Sealed boxes will help protect the safety of your products and customers, avoid damaging your corporate reputation, and reduce the costs associated with tampering and product replacement.
As an added bonus, sealed takeaway boxes clearly demonstrate that you care about their well-being. Customers who see their food suppliers understand that safety is a top priority will increase their loyalty to your product. In fact, a third of consumers globally strongly agree that packaging designed to ensure product safety makes them feel more favorable toward a brand and more likely to buy it.
Disposable take away box needed to keep food fresh
Once the safety of your food is assured, the quality of your food should be your next priority. How do you ensure your food quality and safety by delivering orders? For hot food, ventilated containers
allow the release of steam, unlike other containers that may trap hot air and cause food to become soggy and stomach-churning upon arrival. Another way to maintain the quality of deliverables is to use containers with compartments. If you're serving meals with a variety of textures or temperatures, consider using containers with separate compartments. This feature prevents food mixing and helps maintain the desired texture and appearance.
Sometimes, despite your best efforts, you can't control whether your food will be delivered on time at the right temperature. Look for microwave - or oven-safe single-use takeout packaging so that when your food arrives, your customers can reheat it as needed. Consumers like convenience. By delivering food in heat-resistant containers, customers can cook or reheat food directly in the packaging they arrive in.
Heat-resistant containers allow your guests to quickly and easily reheat their meals at home without having to move containers and soiled more plates. Besides being convenient, this helps avoid any culinary disasters. Consumers in a hurry or unaware can place plastic containers in the microwave, where they may melt, damage the microwave, spoil the food and pose a safety hazard.
Once your food leaves the kitchen, time and delivery experiences often get out of hand. Ventilated and separated containers will help maintain the appearance and quality of the food.
