The scenario:-


An established family restaurant & takeaway business with mobile catering vans selling cold and hot food in house and to take away from the restaurant and at outside events.

Currently using up to 1000 polystyrene foam burger boxes, meal boxes, cups and plastic stirrers, dinner forks, spoons and chip forks per week.

In the summer this could rise to 4000 per week with a full program of outside events and associated waste issues.


–              Large busy restaurant serving hot & cold meals

–              Mobile catering vans serving food & drinks at events

–              Takeaway food & drink service from restaurant


The solution:-


The polystyrene hot food containers currently provide heat insulation and a level of retention, grease resistance and value.


Foam cups are cheap, easy and provide heat insulation together with a plastic tear back sip lid.


Plastic Cutlery is cheap and easy.


In addition in the spirit of the new greenmypackaging switch, the client went from white serviettes to using our own invention the Unbleached Kraft napkins to match.


Since establishing a complete new packaging look and business attitude towards their responsibilities of waste at home and away they have seen an upturn in takeaway sales, improved margins and opened up the possibility of more outdoor events as they are meeting t&c’s regards specified waste.
