Takeout

67% of consumers would be delighted if takeout packaging delivered a solution for oil and grease.

Good food travels fast.

Diners turn to takeout for convenience, so messes and spills caused by substandard food packaging hurts business. Fold-Pak® and our other solutions are designed to be as carefree for the customer as they are for your kitchen staff.

The one-piece design of our cartons make them easy to store, assemble and use—and there’s no lid inventory to manage. And because we offer a wide variety of sizes for hot, cold, wet or dry food, our family of cartons provides a consistent, distinctive image across your menu.

Your customer will appreciate how our cartons protect their food and their refrigerator. And because they’re microwaveable and feature flaps that open extra wide, they make serving food—or even eating right out of the box—a seamless, mess-free experience.

Fine Dining & Fast Casual

Think about the box.

When your diners take home leftovers, your establishment’s reputation goes with them. So what do your take-home containers say about your business? Are they attractive and easy to use? Do they demonstrate your concern for the environment and your patron? When you partner with us, we help you make the most of this often overlooked opportunity to continue connecting with your consumer.

Diners prefer our paperboard packaging to foam, plastic and aluminum. Because they’re recyclable and manufactured in the USA, our fine dining and fast casual cartons support your upscale image. And with a wide range of ready-made options, every food container that leaves your kitchen can serve as a reminder of a great dine-in experience and a positive extension of your brand.

Supermarket & Convenience Store

Grab and go. 

What’s for dinner? Increasingly, the answer is a meal prepared at a market, but eaten at home. And for the busy consumer who looks to you to feed a family, packaging sells. In fact, 30 percent of US consumers say packaging is equally as important as the product itself when it comes to brand perception.

Our packaging solutions are designed to make grab-and-go dining even easier for you and the consumer. Upscale supermarkets count on our packaging for their delis, seafood departments, bakeries, salad bars and more. Our one-piece packaging eliminates the need for lids and our grease-resistant paperboard options protect your customer and your reputation. With Bio-Plus Terra® II we now also offer a line of compostable products.

60% of consumers will purchase a product again because of the packaging functionality.

Bakery

13% of fresh bakery shoppers say oil and grease stains on the package are a deal breaker.

Smart packaging is the icing on the cake. 

Because bakery items pose unique packaging problems, we’ve done some fresh thinking for this category. Our lightweight but sturdy paperboard cartons protect delicate baked goods. And because grease and oil stains can lead to retail shrink, we use paperboard with enhanced barrier properties.

We deliver one-piece designs that save valuable storage space in your busy bakery and a wide range of stock carton sizes perfect for everything from donuts and danishes to bread and baklava. Many of our paperboard cartons are also available with view windows, making our extensive product line an important ingredient in your recipe for success.

Insights & Expertise

With EnShield™, the benefits are
baked right in.

We study consumer pain points for new opportunities. So when more than half of the consumers we surveyed identified greasy and oily foodservice packaging as a major annoyance, we set out to better understand the challenge of designing a solution that protects retail sales and consumers’ clothes. While traditional Solid Bleached Sulfate (SBS) doesn’t provide adequate barrier protection, poly-coated SBS isn’t fully repulpable. Our customers needed a new option, so we developed EnShield kit 5, an innovative alternative to improve consumer satisfaction and help you meet corporate sustainability goals.

89%

of takeout consumers react favorably to a barrier that prevents grease or oil from seeping through the package.
