How to Make Food Packaging Boxes That Delight

Food packaging doesn’t have to be bland and tasteless, why not spice-up your takeaway packaging to give your business’s branding a flavoursome lift.

The better a dish looks, the tastier we think it is — that’s just the miracle of the human mind. When we’re presented with something aesthetically pleasing, our brains assume that anything that looks that good must taste fantastic too. That’s why we think every business should know how to make food packaging boxes that show their food in the best possible light.

Recent studies have discovered that eating food with your hands can also make things taste better, which is great news for burger joints, pizza places and all other hands-on takeaway outlets.

So, can you use your food packaging boxes to engage your customers’ senses? If your diners are handed a beautifully presented takeaway, they’ll likely be more impressed with the taste than if it was carelessly thrown together and bundled in unsightly packaging. With custom packaging, you can create unforgettable dining experiences for your customers that’ll leave them wanting to come back for more.

Creating Bespoke Food Packaging Boxes

If you’re on a mission to deliver amazing flavours to the nation, consider swapping out your boring packaging for boxes and containers that will get the desired reaction from your customers. 

There are a few steps you can take to make sure your new packaging delivers:

1 Pick the Right Packaging

This step is straightforward if you’re only selling specific dishes like noodles, but it can be a tricky affair if you’re selling a variety of food and drinks products. Make sure you choose packaging that’s versatile enough to handle your hot and cold food, like takeaway boxes or soup cups that can effectively contain various cuisines.

If you’re selling a variety of drinks, it’s a good idea to have different containers for different kinds of beverages. It’s best to serve your hot drinks in printed paper cups that can handle the heat, but you’re better off with something like an eco-clear cup — made from sustainable bioplastic — for your ice-cold beverages. Each of these containers has biodegradable properties, meaning they won’t leave a lasting impression on the environment.

2 Create a Custom Design

If you’re happy with your business’s branding, then you’re well on your way to creating some dazzling food packaging designs. Simply adding your logo to your food packaging boxes can go a long way in helping people to remember and recognise your brand, as well as increasing the perceived quality of your products. But taking things a step further can cement your position as the top-dog in town.

If your branding could do with a boost, our in-house design team is here to lend a helping hand. As experts in the field of custom packaging for all manner of takeaway outlets, we’ll be able to help create eye-catching artwork that’ll highlight the quality of your offerings.

3 Order Your Food Packaging Boxes

Once you’re satisfied with your new custom packaging designs, go ahead and order your takeaway boxes, noodle boxes, coffee cups or soup containers. A small investment in the right kind of branded packaging can set your business apart from the competition while also helping you to protect the environment. 

Using vegetable-based inks, we’re able to create incredible designs that won’t affect the biodegradable properties of your packaging — a win for your business and a win for the planet too.

4 Store and Distribute Your New Packaging

It’s important to consider the quantity of the packaging you order. Storing packaging in the right environment can be a bothersome issue for businesses operating in small spaces, but with our storage and distribution service, we can store your new packaging until you need it. When you need more, we’ll send it out to you with next-day delivery so you’re always fully stocked. If you’ve got the storage capabilities, it’s also worth noting that you can design your food packaging boxes to be stackable, saving you valuable space.
