Custom Container Design & Consulting
ECOlunchbox is often contacted by foodservice professionals who are seeking to transition to reusable, plastic-free take-out containers. Did you know we offer custom product design and reusable products consulting services through our sister company CircularWare?
There's no one size fits all when it comes to a stainless steel take-out container, so ECOlunchbox can help you identify and develop a branded food container for your corporate needs.
Whether you are serving food at a corporate campus, university dining hall, environmental education program, green school, aquarium, natural history museum, organic café… we have extensive experience in the development and manufacturing of stainless steel take-out containers to assist you.
Financial and Environmental Costs
Food service managers know that the financial and environmental costs of using throw-away plastic and paper containers is expensive. Many of these professionals are seeking to move over to a non-toxic and highly durable stainless steel lunchbox or tray.
Quality disposable take-out containers can be expensive to purchase and the costs of disposal - as well as to the environment - are also considerable. Unfortunately, even containers that are "eco-friendly" and potentially recyclable or compostable, often end up in the landfill.
Bioplastics are often not recyclable, and even though they may be compostable, most cities don't yet have the capacity to collect and biodegrade the bioplastic material in commercial composting facilities. The other common take-out container option is paper- or fiber-based take-out containers. These containers made from natural materials are less harmful environmentally than regular plastic or bioplastic, but for various reasons paper or fiber containers are also usually disposed of as trash rather than recycled or composted.
We have found that the type of container that cafeteria, catering and school chefs are seeking varies widely. Some of the factors our clients typically consider are:
- What kind of food needs to be packed in the container? Does the container need to be leak-proof?
- Is the prepared food eaten on-site within the cafeteria or restaurant? Or is it taken off premises (on foot or by car) to the customer's office or home?
- Does your business sell prepared foods from a food truck or a food bar? If so, does your take-out container require an etched tare weight so the cashier can accurately charge for the weight of the food purchased?
- Will you need to pack multiple meals for transport (in crates) to a catered event, such as boxed meals served for a corporate meeting, a picnic, a celebration or retreat?
