Production of a takeaway meal box made by LINPAC Packaging has moved to Poland after it proved to be a huge success with fast food businesses across the country.
Manufacturing of a new and improved version of the HP4 meal box began in Poland in January after significant investment by LINPAC Packaging to equip the Bukowice site ready for production. Previously, the HP4 meal box was manufactured in the UK but demand from Polish customers was so great that it made economic and environmental sense for the company to switch production to Poland.
The new HP4 TT meal box, so called because of its twin-tab feature, has been designed to improve consumer experience following consultation with customers across Europe.
The new design is stronger and features a strengthened hinge and twin tab closure which enables servers to close the box more easily and avoid spillages. The meal boxes are made from EPS which has insulating properties keeping food warm for longer and preventing sauce leakage. A special venting system keeps food crispy and tasty.
Piotr Baczkowski, general manager of LINPAC Packaging in central and Eastern Europe, said: “It is fantastic that manufacturing of these hugely popular meal boxes has come to Poland. Consumers are demanding more socially and environmentally responsible production and these factors played an important part in the decision to switch manufacturing sites.
“We constantly strive to meet our customer needs and it was evident that demand for the HP4 meal boxes was significantly higher in Poland than anywhere else.
“At LINPAC Packaging we believe in working together with our customers to create packaging that addresses their market needs and which helps them be more productive and more profitable. The new HP4 TT design is a reflection of what our customers told us they wanted from their packaging during a large consultation period.”
The HP4 meal boxes are ideal for serving a variety of takeaway meals including French fries, kebabs, falafel and curry. They come in a variety of sizes offering effective portion control and customers can select boxes which are divided into two or three sections, which are ideal for serving combinations such as curry and rice, as well as boxes without divides.
The boxes can be stacked conveniently and are easy to de-nest helping fast food operators serve well presented meals quickly. They also feature logo plates on the lid offering takeaway owners the chance to market their brand.
