Put a Lid on Your Foodservice

Snacktops packaging

Foodservice packaging is as driven by trends as the food it contains. Buzzwords such as craft, sustainability and organic are as much the drivers behind innovations in this sphere as artisanal, local and healthy are to food. “Green” packaging made from sustainable raw materials, natural designs and more grab-and-go options are boosting the growth in this area. Packaging for promotions and marketing purposes is also increasing in sophistication, especially for c-stores.
