Takeaway Food Containers

Takeaway food containers are often overlooked, as our primary focus is drawn to what’s inside. Picture this: you’ve woken up late, you’ve left your lunch in the fridge at home, you’re starving and still have so much work left to do. You grab a meal deal from the nearest supermarket as a quick and easy fix. Perfect, but where does the packaging end up?

Millions of takeaway food containers are used daily worldwide and these often end up in landfill, without even a second thought. At Purple Planet Packaging, we recognise the importance of supplying eco-friendly takeaway food containers, meaning you and your customers can enjoy a guilt free bite to eat, time and time again.

Hot Takeaway Food Containers

Takeaway food containers for hot food are more complex than other food containers. They must be able to withstand the high temperatures without scalding the customers, as well as ensuring the contents are fully secure with no chance of leakage.

At Purple Planet Packaging, we stock a range of heat-retaining containers, which are perfect for all kinds of situations, whether you’re delivering food or on the move.

Vegware Food Containers

Vegware’s high quality fluted boxes are perfect for hot food delivery or takeaway. They’re great for serving burgers, street food, curries, fried items and more. These boxes are lightweight yet sturdy, making them suitable for use in hot cabinets. They’re crafted from microflute corrugated board with a compostable inner coating. The hinged lid is perforated, allowing your customers to remove it effortlessly and preserve the quality of their food. This design makes these food containers incredibly practical and versatile for various culinary delights.

We offer two types of burger box food containers, of varying sizes as well as two different types of microflute hot takeaway food containers, perfect for meals of all types and sizes, whether it’s leftovers from the night before or the dinnertime delivery you’ve been daydreaming about all day.

Kraft Soup Containers and Lids

Our soup containers and lids are constructed from sustainably sourced board, demonstrating a commitment to quality and eco-friendliness. They are made from recycled paper and renewable, FSC- natural fibres, ensuring their sustainability throughout their lifecycle. These containers are fully compostable and biodegradable, contributing to a reduction in environmental impact. Additionally, they can be recycled at home, making them a responsible choice for those seeking eco-friendly packaging solutions.

These versatile containers are extremely durable and deliver excellent value and performance. Not only this, we are also proud to offer the perfect pairing of kraft paper vented lids designed to fit your takeaway food container perfectly. These vented lids help to evacuate moisture and really showcase the flavour of the contents.

Pasta and Salad Boxes

Vegware’s windowed boxes offer an ideal solution for packaging cold salads, pasta dishes and snacks for on-the-go consumption. These boxes are crafted from sustainably sourced kraft board and feature a grease resistant water based lining, ensuring the quality and sustainability of the packaging. The clear windows on these boxes are made from plant-based PLA (Polylactic Acid), enhancing their eco-friendliness. These boxes are commercially compostable when disposed of with food waste in facilities that accept them, further contributing to environmentally responsible packaging practices.

Alongside offering these cold takeaway food containers in two different sizes, we also offer practical PLA tuck top kraft window containers in four varying sizes. These tuck top containers are ideal for transportation, ensuring that the contents remain secure and reach their destination in perfect condition.

Sandwich and Warp Containers

We are pleased to introduce our kraft recycled paper sandwich wedges. These wedges are crafted from clean, thoroughly recycled paper, making them entirely recyclable, including the film windows. We offer sandwich wedges in three convenient sizes as well as a perfectly proportioned wrap kraft carton. All of our sandwich wedges, including our wrap carton, are equipped with secure locking tabs to ensure the freshness and safety of your sandwiches during transportation. This eco-friendly solution aims to reduce the environmental footprint associated with disposable takeaway food containers.


What does it mean if something is recyclable?

In order to conserve resources and limit the amount of waste being sent to landfill, recycling is intended to re-use materials by converting waste into new objects and resources.

What does it mean if something is biodegradable?

If something will break down into smaller pieces once it has been disposed, this means it is biodegradable.

What does it mean if something is compostable?

Items that are made up of plants or organic elements that can, in a particular environment, break down into natural elements, are considered compostable. This process does not harm the environment.

Why are eco-friendly takeaway food containers important?

Takeaway sandwiches and wraps are undeniably the most consumed food item globally, which unfortunately results in a significant number of plastic sandwich containers being discarded daily. Other takeaway food containers massively contribute to this waste, and this accumulation of plastic has a detrimental impact on the environment.
