Takeout, Delivery, or Drive-Thru food for immediate consumption has driven top-line sales and bottom-line profits for restaurants, grocery store delis, convenience stores, at a rate never before seen according to Steven Johnson, Grocerant Guru® at Tacoma, WA based Foodservice Solutions®.
It is at the intersection for fresh food fast, full flavor, freshness that saving consumers time and the grocerant niche filled with both Ready-2-Eat and Heat-N-Eat fresh prepared food combine with single-use packaging to drive incremental sales and food safety according to Johnson.
To discover those consumer perceptions and provide feedback to its members, FPI commissioned a third-party to conduct a survey to find out how frequently people use single-use packaging and their perceptions and behavior choices related to foodservice packaging, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.
1. Being leak- or spill-proof and stopping oil or grease from soaking through and staining clothes, car seats, etc. remain the most important attributes of single-use foodservice packaging for U.S. and Canadian respondents.
Natha Dempsey, president of FPI, stated, “The spotlight has grown and remains focused on single-use foodservice packaging, particularly throughout the past year,” …“We wanted to better understand consumer perceptions around these packaging products and compare them to our first consumer survey conducted in 2019. We also wanted to find out how, or if, the pandemic affected their perceptions of foodservice packaging.”
The ability to create packaging to fit your menu items perfectly and print branded messaging on your packaging will only solidify your food, brand, and customer relationship with it.
