How to pack sandwiches and snacks – The Packaging Doctor

By Carl Board • Friday 01st September 2017

With so many different styles of box to choose from, sometimes we can all benefit from some packaging advice to choose the best box for the job! This week, a new business needs some help to choose which type of box they should use to pack their sandwiches and snacks…


Dear Doctor,

I am setting up my own business selling sandwiches, wraps and snack packs into local businesses, and need to find some boxes to deliver the snacks in

I need a few different sizes of box, especially as some regular orders will have 5, 10 or 12 food items to be packed within one box.

What would be the best type of box to use?




Hi Kate,

With a range of boxes to choose from, we can definitely provide you and your business with some great boxes to pack your sandwiches, wraps and snacks!

As some of your packs will have 10 or 12 items, we would suggest using Kite’s double wall boxes, designed to provide superior strength for packing and transporting goods. Double wall boxes are made with two layers of corrugated cardboard, which will help you to transport your delicate sandwich and wrap snacks carefully and ensure they arrive to your customer in excellent condition.

To help you to pack variable sizes and weights of goods, our double wall boxes are capable of handling weights of 5kg to 10kg, and some of Kite’s range is multiscored, allowing you to reduce the height of the box to pack smaller orders more efficiently. These features will allow you the flexibility to use one or two sizes of box to fulfil all of your orders, which helps to keep costs of packing your boxes low.

We hope you will see the benefits of using this style of cardboard box, and we wish you luck starting your new business.

Best wishes,

The Packaging Doctor
