Packaging that delivers – our new portfolio for home delivery with more than 100 products

Addressing changing patterns of consumer  behavior  and  the  increasing demand for sustainable and functionally superior packaging for food and drink, we have launched a consolidated range of over 100 products for food and drink on-the-go, specifically designed to serve the needs of home delivery and takeaway foodservice operators in the UK.

The range offers easy access to home delivery products for our customers. The products are presented in one catalogue, where they can be easily sourced based on: the types of food they can be used for, their functionality e.g. for the oven or freezer, and for the delivery or service channel they use (hot-hold, delivery or on-the-go). The catalogue is easy to navigate and provides ‘at a glance’ iconography to inform buyers of the product credentials, functionality, materials and plastic content along with guidance on responsible disposal, enabling easy and direct comparison of products within the range and with those from other manufacturers.

The home delivery range comprises established, high-demand and fast-moving products, many of which will be manufactured for stock and are available ‘off the shelf’ immediately from Huhtamaki. The range features brand new fiber-based products manufactured in folding carton and fluted packaging as well as a number of existing products from Huhtamaki’s ‘Taste’ range, which have been updated to improve performance, leak resistance and stronger sustainability benefits. Here, aligned with our 2030 Sustainability strategy, we have reduced the plastic content 33% against previous versions.

“Packaging plays a significant role in food safety and convenience. Huhtamaki is committed to making packaging more circular and we are embedding sustainability in everything we do. All the products in this range have been carefully chosen to present a variety of serving solutions. There is a strong focus on fiber-based packaging within the range, sourced from sustainably managed forests. Plastic has been reduced or removed wherever possible,” says Ciaran Doherty, Vice President Foodservice UK.

Huhtamaki is committed to protecting food, people and the planet, enabling wellbeing and convenience for people around the world. We work to serve better, smarter and more sustainable packaging that delivers:

  • All your home delivery and take-away needs
  • Superior functionality, e.g. temperature retention (hot & cold), leak resistance
  • Stronger sustainability benefits
