Rising importance of sustainable containers

Chefs and restaurateurs have identified that customers appreciate the use of sustainable practices when dining out. To continue as a sustainable business, restaurants are trying to reduce their food waste and are beginning to cut down on their energy use. Consumers prefer containers that are environment-friendly. Vendors are increasingly investing in R&D to develop containers that are recyclable and resistant to friction, moisture, and heat.

Manufacturers are focusing on incorporating innovative technology to provide versatile materials that are durable, eco-friendly, and temperature-resistant. They can be used as insulated storage containers and are also beneficial for different end-users,” according to Manu.

Demand for more sophisticated design

Many leading manufacturers are finding new sources of cost saving. This will help them optimize product formulations by implementing efficient equipment. Therefore, top vendors are looking for new cost saving mechanisms and more sophisticated designs to increase the efficiency of different products. This will provide them with opportunities to escalate profit and attain their sustainability goals.

Currently, many food storage container manufacturers are providing a wide range of containers, which are efficient and require very little maintenance. Increased demand for plastic-based food storage containers among consumers and buyers is propelling market growth.

Rise in demand for glass containers

Glass storage containers generally have a plastic lid that helps in keeping the food airtight. These containers are available in clear, frosted, and colored glasses. There are several advantages of glass containers such as longevity and they keep the food fresh for longer periods as compared with other food storage containers. Many end-users prefer glass containers, which are specifically designed for use in freezing and preheating purposes.

There are manufactures that are providing different kinds of improved versions of glass food storage containers like the tempered glass and Pyrex, which are widely used in commercial kitchens. Some of these containers are manufactured to be used in microwaves without causing any cracks. Glass food storage containers do not stain, peel, or take on the taste or odor of the food stored in them.

The key vendors are as follows:

  • Cambro Manufacturing
  • Carlisle
  • Newell Brands
  • Vollrath
