Christmas is a time for togetherness. Bring everyone around the table with our festive and eco-friendly packaging solutions.
The festive season is upon us, and the hospitality sector is set to generate £3.5 billion in a sharp post-COVID rebound. High streets will no doubt be brimming with shoppers in the lead up to Black Friday, Cyber Monday and, of course, Christmas.
For takeaway outlets, it’s going to be a busy period. There’s no better time to get festive with your food packaging ahead of the holiday season, so here’s a quick guide to help you get the Christmas packaging you need.
Do People Order Takeaways on Christmas Day?
To some, a takeaway on Christmas Day might be the worst thing imaginable. While the Christmas turkey might be a long-standing tradition, more than half of the UK population planned to order a takeaway on December 25th last year. The tide seems to be changing, so maybe there’s something to be said for a convenient Christmas meal?
According to Just Eat, the country enjoys an eclectic festive feast on Christmas, ordering everything from kebabs and curry to burgers and pizza. With a surprising demand for takeaways, you can make your customers’ Christmas even more memorable with the right packaging.
Three Christmas Takeaway Packaging Essentials
Whether you’re planning on keeping your establishment open on Christmas or taking some well-earned time off, there’s plenty you can do to keep the festivities going with seasonal food and drinks packaging for your takeaways:
1. Biodegradable Christmas Cups
Countless shoppers will be looking to rest their bones as they break away from the hordes that descend on town and city centres during the holiday season. Give them Christmas-themed pick-me-up with our biodegradable Christmas cups. Each cup is constructed with a double-wall design to keep your beverages warm, even on the coldest winter days. Serve delicious, fresh coffee, tea or cinnamon-spiced Chai lattes that hold the heat with eco-friendly lids (sold separately).
2. Premium Quality Food Carriers
If your customers are ordering in, make their experience that much more convenient with strong and sturdy gable-handle food carriers. These are popular the whole year-round, but they’re incredibly practical around Christmas time as they make transporting hot and fresh takeaways a breeze, even if your customers are laden with shopping bags. Although they’re completely recyclable, they can easily be reused by your customers. If you opt to add your branding, you’ll create an easy way to promote your business.
3. Compostable Bowls
Soups and stews are some of the most wholesome warming meals you can serve in the colder months, but finding the right packaging can be tricky. Our biodegradable bowls are more than up to the task. They’ll keep your food piping hot no matter the weather, thanks to the PLA lining, which creates an effective barrier against moisture while trapping heat. They’re available in various sizes, so you can always serve the right portions.
Ordering Christmas Takeaway Packaging
If fried chicken is taking the place of your customers’ Christmas turkey, make sure your takeaway packaging doesn’t accidentally take centre stage by failing during the most wonderful time of year. Invest in the right packaging and save the day with eco-friendly packaging that doesn’t disappoint.
