Whether it’s a freshly made smoothie in the park or a coffee on the high street, food and drinks vendors will need the right eco-friendly takeaway packaging this summer.
Summer is right around the corner, and with more freedom to hit the park for a picnic or to head into town for a refreshing beverage or two, it’s the perfect time for food and drinks vendors to capitalise on the increased footfall around their stalls.
While restaurants, bars and other food and drinks outlets will eventually be able to host its guests indoors as usual, there will still be a large percentage of patrons who’ll want to take their refreshments away with them.
This, of course, means that vendors will need plenty of eco-friendly packaging for their various takeaway products. So what is the best eco-friendly takeaway packaging for the summer months ahead?

No matter what refreshments you’re serving, eco-friendly packaging will impress your customers, helping generate brand awareness, recognition, loyalty and advocacy. It’ll help prove to consumers that your business is doing everything it can to protect the environment, helping you tap into the unrestricted growth of the eco-conscious market while preserving the planet’s resources.

It’s often debated whether or not a hot drink can cool you down, but whatever you believe, it’s important to have the right eco-friendly takeaway options on the menu.
All of our coffee cups and lids have the same characteristics and functionality as your average, non-sustainable takeaway products, but they have the added benefit of being 100% recyclable and biodegradable, giving your customers every opportunity to dispose of their cups responsibly.
