Takeaway Packaging: Our Purpose

It’s no secret that plastic packaging is one of the biggest offenders when safeguarding the environment. Plastic takes hundreds of years to decompose, causes endless harm to animals (including humans) and damages fragile ecosystems. 

That’s why it’s our mission to eliminate single-use plastic waste from food and drink packaging. We want eco-friendly food packaging accessible, functional and affordable for all UK businesses to champion sustainability. After all, powerful planet-positivity starts with something as simple as upgrading your takeaway packaging.

Case Studies

Positive Packaging Policy

As a group of companies, Takeaway Packaging and Packaging Supplies Ltd have been carbon neutral since 2020. We achieved this with the assistance of a third party assessor, Carbon Jacked, who helped us measure our carbon footprint, off-set any unavoidable emissions through climate projects and take steps to reduce our overall carbon footprint.

Our History

Back in the late 1970s, Tim Allen and Stewart Middleton were two friends and colleagues with a vision. They’d noticed that the packaging industry had a gap in the market. Tim and Stewart wanted to offer their customers more, like warehouse storage and fast delivery times. In 1981, Takeaway Packaging’s parent company Packaging Supplies was born. After over three decades of building our collective knowledge and experience, we opened Takeaway Packaging, our specialist food packaging division in the UK. The rest, as they say, is history.
