Compostable Bags for Seafood Restaurant

Shoal in Winchester came to us needing customised twisted-handle paper bags and specialised fish and chip boxes to keep their tasty fish and chips in prime condition for their customers. 

Shoal is a vibrant and trendy seafood restaurant located in the heart of Winchester, with a focus on serving fresh and sustainable seafood. The menu features a diverse selection of dishes inspired by coastal cuisine, showcasing the best of local and seasonal ingredients. Using ethically and responsibly sourced fish, Shoal wanted to extend their commitment to sustainability by investing in eco-friendly fish and chips packaging. 

Our twisted-handle paper bags are made from 80% recycled materials and are completely compostable after use. We’ve revolutionised the traditional cardboard pizza box design by using virgin Kraft paper on the inside of our fish and chip boxes. This approach ensures that our boxes are food grade and safe for direct contact with food. Plus, this design enhances grease resistance, as the tighter-packed fibres in the paper make it a lot harder for the grease to penetrate the box. 

Offsetting dark blue on white is a simple way of making contrasting colours stand out. The tails of the fish combined with coral and seaweed floating between gives a natural feel — a nice reference to Shoal’s dedication to selecting responsibly-sourced and seasonal fish. 

Custom branding like this is a worthwhile investment as it advertises your product, which will drive sales. Spread the word through compelling designs, solidifying brand consistency and tempting new customers to buy from you.
