Kraft takeaway boxes
The term ‘Kraft’ in these takeaway boxes comes from the kraft process of producing paper or paperboard from a chemical pulp. Paper produced in this process has high elasticity and tear resistance, lending itself well to packaging products and giving them the desired strength and durability required for protecting goods in transit.

What is a takeaway box?
These greaseproof takeaway boxes are carefully constructed to contain most types of food without allowing any grease or water to penetrate through the material. The tapered structure presents the food comfortably for consumption while attractively displaying the dish. The sturdy four-flap integrated folding lid enables the user to stack the boxes safely while reliably protecting the contents from being crushed, ideal for transporting multiple takeaways to customers.
What types of food do our kraft takeaway boxes hold?
These takeaway trays can securely contain hot, cold, wet or dry foods. Hence, they are suitable for virtually all types of takeaways, from Chinese noodle dishes to juicy fruit salads. Our range of different sizes enable companies to pack main meals or side orders within these kraft containers, even loading potentially leak-prone dishes such as salads with dressing or pasta courses with sauce. These boxes are excellent all-rounders, making them ideal for establishments supplying food from a large and varied menu with maximum efficiency.
What are the properties of our kraft food boxes?
The main features of our takeaway container include the leak-resistant design, greaseproof material and stackable structure. Each of these qualities support the smooth functioning of any food distributor operating in the ecommerce or takeaway market. The water based coating is a key aspect that grants this professional level of protection to the contents while in transit to the consumer. In addition, the boxes are intended to be breathable and odourless for the freshest possible impression on arrival. Customers have asked us if our Kraft takeout containers are suitable for home freezing. Our manufacturer has not formally tested for this and so our recommendation is that customers request a single sample of the product and trial it first.
Are kraft boxes recyclable?
Our kraft recyclable takeaway boxes offer exceptional green credentials to your business by also being biodegradable and commercially compostable. However, it is important to note that any food waste that is free moving within packaging or attached to the surface is considered to be contamination that prohibits an item from being recycled. Simply ask your customers to scrape takeout boxes clean before recycling as normal; surface staining is acceptable.
Why is sustainable kraft packaging important?
Traditional food packaging depletes natural resources and is harmful to the planet when it is not disposed of responsibly. Sustainable food packaging, on the other hand, demands less use of natural resources and promotes a circular economy where materials are recycled and reused instead. Most importantly, it reduces the negative environmental impact caused by packed food and those who sell it. Not to mention, using eco-friendly food packaging makes your business more attractive to consumers becoming increasingly eco-conscious.
What are the benefits of kraft boxes?
Beyond being an eco-friendly packaging choice, kraft takeaway boxes have considerable benefits which lend well to the needs of takeaway packaging. As kraft paper is known for its strength and durability, it can withstand rough handling and protects contents from damage. Kraft takeaway boxes also offer great protection against moisture, light and minor impacts, ensuring your takeaway meals reach customers safely.
Many consumers appreciate the brown, rustic appearance of kraft paper as it gives products a natural and organic look. This appeals to consumers who appreciate the eco-friendliness of kraft packaging, which can enhance the overall perception of your brand and everything it has to offer.
What’s more, kraft paper is typically more affordable than some other packaging materials, making our brown food boxes a cost-effective option for businesses, especially when packaging large quantities of takeaways.
What does kraft mean for boxes?
The term “kraft” refers to a type of paper or cardboard typically brown in colour which has been treated with a chemical process known as the “kraft process.” This process removes the lignin from the wood fibres, resulting in a strong and sturdy paper material which makes kraft boxes the go-to choice for many retailers and food vendors.
