Convenient Short-Term Food Storage Options for Takeaway Food

Food waste is increasingly becoming a problem not just in Australia but all over the world. This is why food storage has become a priority for most households as well as for businesses. When it comes to takeaways or deliveries, the food packaging it comes with can play a significant role not just in the presentation of the food but in its storage as well.

If you are a restaurant or café owner, here are some packaging products that provide great short-term food storage.

Food Wraps

Food Foil and paper – food wraps can come in these two varieties and can be used for different purposes.

  • Foil – This is used to keep juices and sauces in and prevent them from seeping through the packaging. When used for storing food, these are great for locking in the unpleasant smell of food and preventing it from spreading all over the room or your refrigerator. But the best thing about foil is its ability to withstand prolonged exposure to higher temperatures. This means when you reheat food, you can directly put it in your oven with the foil in place.
  • Plastic – This is great to use in sealing and keeping food, like sandwiches and fruits, fresh, making it a great storage option for food. Plus, plastic food wrap, like cling wrap, is microwaveable so you can also easily pop it in for reheating.

Plastic Containers

Plastic containers are one of the packaging products that offer quality and durability. Not only can you display your food beautifully through the clear containers, their snap and seal lid can also keep your food fresh, prevent leaks and protect it from contamination.

On top of this they’re refrigerator and microwave safe, and are also recyclable.
