Food Packaging: Plastic Glasses
Food Packaging comes in a variety of formats and making the right choice for your business is crucial. We have compiled a list of our most popular fast food packaging and catering packaging products on one page to make that choice easier for you. As well as making your search quicker this page is intended to help you compare different products in terms of their various properties such as weight, average cost per unit, heat resistive properties etc.
Foam Trays, Containers and Foam Cups
Foam containers are an ideal way to serve food in lightweight inexpensive food or drink containers that provides excellent heat insulation. Heat insulation is crucial if customers are unable to sit at a table and hold their takeaway food containers in their hand. They are a cheaper alternative to paper cups and trays. For example, foam cups cost approximately 60-70% of the price of paper cups. Don’t forget to purchase lids for your foam cups as they are sold separately!
Plastic Glasses, Trays, Plastic Food Containers and Cutlery
Plastic glasses and food trays are ideal for serving or storing cold foods or for serving take-home hot meals such as Chinese or Indian dishes that contain large amounts of sauce. They are especially ideal for foods that are likely to need reheating as they are microwavable containers and obviously have completely waterproof bases. They are also ideal for storing meats and fish in the fridge and when used with a lid provide excellent protection from bacterial growth. When storing meat, plastic food trays can also be used in conjunction with absorbent pads and food labels to ensure adequate food safety.
Plastic Glasses are idea for serving cold drinks such as smoothies, squash, or alcoholic beverages. They are comparable in price per unit to foam cups and can save money by eliminating the need for washing up and reducing cues at pubs, clubs or busy outdoor events. The use of plastic rather than glass also drastically reduces the risk of drinks containers being used as weapons. Plastic glasses cannot be smashed to provide sharp edges and also prevents broken glass from cutting bare feet if the glass is dropped.
Foil Trays, Containers and Lids
Foil trays and containers provide a firm waterproof container that is very difficult to crack or pierce, can withstand higher temperatures than all other containers and can therefore be reheated in the oven rather than the microwave. For this reason the foil tray is ideal for serving high quality food that does not need to be microwaved. Foil containers are the ideal way to allow customers to take home cooked meat such as ribs, steak with sauces or gravy from a restaurant or takeaway.
Paper Cups, Paper Bags, Food / Pizza Boxes
Paper cups are a popular choice for businesses that need to make a good impression with their clients. Paper cups are slightly more expensive than foam or plastic but are very comfortable to drink from, can provide excellent and long lasting heat insulation for the hands when holding very hot drinks and can be coupled with a plastic lid to provide a water tight and relatively safe seal. Styling of the paper cup is also much more versatile than foam or plastic. Adding the customers branding to the paper cup can add to the atmosphere of a coffee shop when the drink is consumed on the premises or can help to advertise the shop when drinks are consumed off the premises.
Paper Food Bags
Paper food bags can be an excellent alternative to the plastic bag. The bag provides a stable carrying base and therefore a safe sturdy means to carry multiple items such as drinks or hot food. As the paper bag is breathable, it can help to prevent the problem of steam saturating dry items carried in the same bag – a common problem with using plastic food bags.
Our Pizza boxes are a standard format. They come flat packed and can be quickly and easily assembled to provide a strong base for carrying pizza, either by the customer or by a delivery driver.
