Takeaway packaging design and innovation beyond disposable cups and plates.

In the future of smart kitchens, digitalised ordering and automated deliveries the current takeaway packaging solutions are simply not efficient and sustainable enough for the foodservice nor the consumers. A change is needed from packaging material vs. material discussion into considering packaging truly as a tangible part of the foodservice and eating experiences. Packaging design and innovations play a key role bringing the virtual and physical experiences together.
