Novolex has introduced a new range of containers that ensures food sent out for delivery reaches consumers in good condition.
EcoCraft Fresh & Crispy clamshell containers offer a unique system for high-performance ventilation to keep fried foods crunchy and warm.
They are constructed with Eco-Flute micro-flute corrugation for superior rigidity and crush strength to maintain food integrity during transport and delivery.
Adrianne Tipton, senior vice president of innovation at Novolex, said: “EcoCraft Fresh & Crispy containers solve a problem that has long troubled restaurants and caterers: how to keep fried foods warm and crispy until they’re delivered.
“These containers even keep french fries crispy, warm and tasty. That’s a real innovation in food delivery.”
Testing has shown that EcoCraft Fresh & Crispy containers consistently outperform competing packaging, with significantly less temperature loss while better maintaining crispiness.
Rick Brown, vice president of foodservice sales, said: “We designed these containers so fried food arrives at your door tasting just as delicious as it does at the restaurant.”
EcoCraft Fresh & Crispy containers are designed for restaurants, convenience stores, supermarkets, caterers and delivery services.
The containers, which feature a secure latch lock to keep them closed during deliveries, come in two different sizes: 5.5 x 5 x 2.88 inches and 6.28 x 5 x 2.25 inches while custom print is available.
The container’s middle layer uses 100% post-consumer recycled content, providing a sturdy, lightweight package and the whole container is made with a minimum of 33% post-consumer recycled content.
