Your schedule can get pretty hectic. Between going to work, running errands, and taking care of yourself, it can be hard finding the time to shop for groceries and cook a delicious meal. It’s one of the reasons why meal delivery services have become such a hot trend amongst consumers. According to Truly, the meal kit industry has flourished over the years, and it shows no signs of slowing down, with an expected worth of $11.2 billion in 2022. With its growing popularity, it’s become apparent that there is a need for quality packaging to ensure food remains fresh from the warehouse to the customer’s doorstep.

Please read our blog post below and learn how our food packaging solutions elevate your meal delivery experience. 

Custom Branded Packaging Helps Meal Delivery Services Stand Out

There are many meal kit delivery services to choose from. It’s a highly competitive market where companies demand attention from consumers from all walks of life. Your meal delivery service can stand out amongst your competitors by incorporating branded food packaging into operations. Using the right packaging will excite your customers when they see it on their doorstep and encourage them to open it immediately. Some materials that can help differentiate your branding are:

  • Custom boxes: Not only will unique boxes create an unforgettable unboxing experience that elevates your customers’ engagement. Logos, colors, and other branding elements printed on it can be used to make your packaging stand out. 
  • Custom packaging tape: Packaging tape will help protect your products during transit, and it provides an opportunity to highlight your brand colors.
  • Unique labels: If you’re looking to save on packaging costs, custom labels can be a great alternative to building custom boxes.

Insulated Packaging is Critical for Maintaining Quality

The essential part of providing meal delivery services to consumers is to protect its integrity. Preventing spoilage and bacteria growth is fundamental and ensures your customers receive the best possible products, and your reputation remains intact. Adopting insulated packaging solutions will be the hero in your supply chain.

Recently, Pioneer Packaging launched a new type of insulated packaging that prioritizes product integrity and sustainability. Instead of relying on styrofoam coolers to ship food and other temperature-sensitive products, our 100% recyclable cooler comprises corrugated boxes lined with perforated layers of paper insulation. We’ve tested it against strict industry shipping standards and found that our cooler can withstand harsh environments during transit and maintain the product’s appropriate temperature.  It’s a perfect solution for shipping a wide range of food, including:

  • Produce
  • Meat
  • Seafood
  • Juice
  • Dairy
  • Alcoholic beverages

Enhance Meal Delivery Services with Sustainable Packaging 

As mentioned above, preventing food spoilage and ensuring food safety are vital in every meal kit service. According to Packaging Digest, food is lost and wasted throughout the supply chain, from farm production to household consumption. Insulated packaging can play a significant role in reducing waste by extending the shelf life and keeping products cold in transit. Additionally, when you adopt a sustainable solution like Pioneer Packaging’s thermal cooler, you’re taking extra steps towards a sustainable future.
