Take-out menu hail or fail?

Take-out menu hail or fail?

Now we want our packaging to be on point and it need not be an expensive exercise.  If you can limit your packaging choices to 3 or 4 different items, which is achievable if your menu is not crazy long, it can save on costs as well as space, and your staff will be more familiar with assembly if any is required, making your takeaway menu as streamlined as your dine in.
I have compiled a short list of popular winter food items and the best packaging to serve them in, hopefully it will come in handy when your take away orders spike as the mercury drops.

The Environmentally Sustainable Way To Replace Plastic Containers and Plates

The vegans are coming - is your business ready for this Mega Trend?

The vegans are coming - is your business ready for this Mega Trend?

Remember, if you do good, you'll feel good. We can all make small changes to the planet that collectively will have a big impact.  Climate change and greenhouse gases are two of the most spoken about environmental issues facing the planet in 2018.

And with animal agriculture emissions projected to increase to 80 per cent of all emissions there's a sustained effort to reduce the amount of animal agriculture needed to feed the planet.
