Packaging and food are inextricably bound. Packaging contributes to quality retention and is an important part of the guest experience, in terms of presentation, ease of use and sustainability. The relevance of packaging has also grown appreciably in food service, through the rapid growth of home delivered and takeaway meals. New developments like these also have their challenges. How, for example, does the packaging keep home-delivery meals hot and toasty? And can we come up with a good way to reuse our home delivery packaging?
Specialist in innovative, sustainable food packaging
We identify market opportunities and convert these to a stand-out packaging design. We specialise in the development of sustainable food packaging that stands up to the daily rigours of the food provider and the wishes of the guest. Standard or bespoke packaging available. Consider smart ‘to go’ packaging and ready-to-eat home-delivery packaging.
Besides neutral and customer-specific assortments, we have developed a variety of home lines, in which all the ingredients of successful food packaging come together: our packaging keeps meals and snacks fresh, toasty and representative. Together we assure a pleasant experience for user and guest, and we continue to improve the sustainability of our mix with a view to reuse.
Concept development and brand packaging
Concept development and brand packaging We specialise in the development of innovative new packaging concepts, tailored to the current laws and regulations, market developments and the wishes and requirements of the target group. Our knowledge of the materials and technical possibilities enables us to make the right choices in terms of practicality, food safety, minimum environmental impact and cost-effective production. To this end we work closely with our own design studio, ‘Paardekooper Creative’, The LCA centre (an independent research laboratory), and, of course, the client. At a trend and inspiration session we will gladly demonstrate the many options and the added value of good packaging design, as part of a unique and sustainable guest experience.
