Sustainability is a key issue in food packaging. Almost 60% of consumers want their packaging to be more sustainable and 40% are willing to pay a little more in the process. (source: Asia Pulp and Paper 2013 survey) The fast food, consumer goods and beverage markets, in particular, have work to do on their sustainable packaging. Sustainability standards are measured in four areas: recyclability, compostability, recycled content, and source production. The US lags behind other countries in its recycling efforts – its recycling rate is 34.5% compared to other countries, and packaging recycling is at about 51%. Current packaging practices such as the use of black plastic and the increase in flexible packaging should be looked at, since these two packaging options are not recyclable. (Source: As You Sow & The National Resource Defense Council, Waste and Opportunity 2015) The fast food industry especially is a big user of plastic food packaging. The truth remains that the majority of fast food packaging will end up in a landfill. The industry is not doing much to solve this problem. Pressure is on to
Everyone loves the charm and style of our wood cheese boxes for cheese and other food products. Not only do they promote the food inside in an attractive and eye-catching way, they truly offer a green solution for food packaging. These wood cheese boxes come in various shapes and sizes and accommodate several printing techniques, including typography, pad printing, pyrography and wood dye. The boxes can also be laminated with greaseproof, plastic film (PE, PP, PET). Depending on the assembly, the boxes are also ovenable and microwaveable. Artisan made food products such as cheese and sandwiches need a packaging solution that reflects the care and quality put into the food products. Our wood cheese boxes are a perfect way to package your product. Why not package your locally made cheese or to-go sandwiches in a wood cheese box that shows your customers that you care about the environment.
Greening Ability In-mold labeling typifies one of the quieter but positive ecological features of plastic containers. A customized container for a milk or cheese product, for instance, stands apart from normal containers with outstanding art. Besides sharp graphics and design distinction without parallel, in-mold labeling products offer a new outlet for sustainability. These products are considerably washable and support reuse. The same cannot be said of other plastic packaging. Dairy products that come in custom containers not only stand out on visual appeal. Because in-mold labeled containers are made with polypropylene, one of the most recyclable plastics, food processors that use these containers are making a positive contribution to the environment that help them stand apart in the marketplace.
Show or Substance? Is dynamic visual presentation as important as the food inside? As food packaging manufacturers, we know that substance and appearance are connected to each other when it comes to any food product. When both elements work well, the end product entices customers and encourages healthy foodservice business. Surveying a shelf of product containers, consumers use their perception of food and the quality of packaging when making a purchase. An appealing container informs the buyer’s opinion of the food inside. We believe that the presentation or “look and feel” of a food product is of equal importance as the food itself. In-mold labeling gives an intangible element that engages customers and translates to positive attitudes and more sales. Undeniably, a food product with unique packaging receives a favorable response from the consumer. In-mold labeling allows for custom packaging designs. Because in-mold labeling uses machines that insert a company’s graphics and logo, each new product mold establishes the company’s brand identity and facilitates greater brand recognition.
