As mentioned in our Christmas 2017 blog, street-food is enjoying its time in the limelight thanks to growing demand from the consumer for innovative, globally-influenced lunch and snack options. When the consumer thinks of artisan street-food however, it’s unlikely that they associate classic white or champagne coloured EPS trays with being an eco-friendly packaging alternative for their favourite street-foods.
An innovative new solution for premium meats and has been designed by LINPAC to reduce food spoilage and waste in-store – we think you’ll like it a lot. LINslice is an absorbent EPS base ideally suited to products such as sliced smoked salmon and pre-cooked meats.

While the debate about litter south of the Border continues to focus bone-head calls for a ban on packaging, the Scots are taking a more enlightened view of things by focusing on the actual cause of litter by urging Scots to do the right thing and use the bin.

John Massey of JM’s Restaurant & Takeaway in Retford, Nottinghamshire is rightly proud of his fish and chips and is keen that those taking their meal out of JM’s enjoy it just as much as those eating in the restaurant. That’s why John spent a lot of time choosing the right packaging to serve his fish and chips in to ensure that the chips don’t turn soggy and the batter remains nice and crisp. “At one time, it was easy to be concerned with only the cost factor but now, with more choices available and a greater focus on the environmental impact of packaging, our customers are demanding the very best from their local fish and chip shop,” says John.
