What are Gourmet Boxes?
The food industry has grown rapidly in the past few years, with the introduction of food competitions and food challenges, it was observed that a lot of food started going to waste, and it was not just the case with fast food, but with gourmet foods as well, people would order more food than they need, eat some of it and the rest would go to waste. To prevent that food wastage, gourmet boxes were introduced, so that people could take the leftover food with them when they leave.
Not only that, custom gourmet food boxes are a necessity because it is important for the food to look presentable when packaged, presentation is everything in the food industry, for some, it is even more important than the taste, so we cannot compromise on that in any way. Gourmet food boxes are also used as gifts on different occasions, which makes it even more important for a box to be well designed and high quality so that it can hold the food.
Material Selection for Custom Gourmet Boxes
Unlike regular packaging materials, we cannot just use a single type of paper or packaging material for all our products, in the food industry, as every food item is different from the other. There are liquid food items, frozen food items, solid food or hot food items, and so on and so forth, and gourmet boxes usually contain most of these items. So we need specific packaging for every type of food. Luckily, we are not bound to a specific type of packaging, we can use whatever materials best suit our requirements.
Some of the food packaging materials are:
Food Grade Plastic
Plastic packaging is one of the best materials and most commonly used materials in the food industry as it helps ensure the safety and quality of the product. Plastic offers good protective qualities, which means that it can protect the food from containment for a long time, once it has been packaged. The protective quality of plastic also contributes towards increasing the shelf life of the packaged product, which also reduces food waste.
Some of the food-grade plastics are also recyclable. Which makes them somewhat eco-friendly.
Metal food packages are usually made from the following materials:
These metals make the packaging heat resistant, and since it is metal it can be easily recycled.
Glass is one of the best food packaging materials available in the market, as it does not allow moisture or heat to get in, hence increasing the shelf life of the food, glass is usually transparent which allows the consumers to look at the product, and it can also be color coated to attract or reflect heat, depending on what the product needs. Glass is also a sustainable material as it can be recycled as many times as you want, as long as it does not break.
If we are talking about luxury gourmet boxes we cannot ignore the need for a cardboard box, as these are needed to contain all the food items that make a gourmet food box whole. These boxes usually have different shapes cut out inside to fit jars, bottle bowls, and other food utensils. These are also recyclable and are made with thick and high-quality cardboard that can withstand pressure and hold its shape to protect the food inside.
