Thinking outside the lunch box
On-the-go dining is set to witness some big changes, thanks to a range of packaging innovations that will be on display at the Lunch! exhibition at the Business Design Centre in London this month.

Tri-Star will be showing the new Nibble Box: a recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) pack designed to hold an array of foods from breakfast fruits and pasta salads to more exotic options such as tapas, meze, and tortilla wraps.

Offering high levels of visibility and freshness, the Nibble Box has a 1,000cm3 capacity and is made to British Retail Consortium-approved standards for food-grade packs. It can be configured with three insert options to fit various products, and finished either with a flat lid for eating on the move or a domed lid for bakery products.

Kevin Curran, md of Tri-Star, said: "Many people are fed up with the bog-standard lunch fare. The Nibble Box enables food-on-the-go retailers to offer different lunch options and thereby increase sales and enhance customer loyalty.

"It's a fantastic way to eat messy but delicious food on the move."

Tri-Star will also be displaying its new Ultraclear plus 'press&dress' containers, whose lids incorporate a pot enabling sealed storage of a wet ingredient such as a dressing. The consumer simply removes this pot from the lid by pressing it out and then adds the liquid ingredient to the product in the cup.
