The food sector has produced dizzying growth in recent years, and has not stopped its run even in times of global pandemic. However, it is changing its skin, focusing on take-away food and delivery.
The takeaway food sector is estimated to have risen to 53 billion euros per year and, despite the unique circumstances humanity finds itself in, it is likely to grow further at a rapid pace. Priestmangoode aims to tackle takeaway culture problems with sustainable food packaging. They are molded from a bio composite material made with cocoa bean waste.
Remade, cocoa takeaway containers
Created as part of the Wallpaper * Re-Made project, these bio-composite containers are modeled to look like Bento boxes. These are boxes with a modular design, which can contain different compartments for different foods, and allow you to bring various dishes.
This take-away format is very useful and provides an interesting alternative to plastic containers, as it is also waterproof and leakproof.
It effectively reduces components by removing items like lids. As for the baskets of Chinese ravioli, the containers are stacked and each of them acts as a cap to the other.
Remade, the takeaway nature
The use of cocoa beans to make take-away containers is a small revolution. Used to make packaging, this material meets several criteria.
The containers made from this bio-composite material are heat-resistant, light, recyclable and insulating. And then they are beautiful, which is good: the designer Paula Nerlich has done a splendid job combining practicality of use and appearance that recalls the natural origins.
An All Star of bio materials
Even the external bag that carries the containers is made of completely natural materials. The is used mycelium to isolate the interior, a bioplastic known as Nuatan to provide a robust outer shell. A natural leather derived from the pineapple leaves called Piñatex for the lid of the outer container e Lexcell, a neoprene-free natural rubber for the handles and straps of bags and containers.
In summary, Remade addresses the huge problem of single-use plastic packaging plaguing our environments and oceans.
Provides a completely natural and biodegradable solution to plastic boxes and cling film wrappers. It exploits natural and innovative biomaterials and at the same time also natural waste materials such as shells of cocoa beans.
The future of takeaway food: reusable delivery
The increasingly frequent use of delivery delivery of takeaway food can find a valuable ally in solutions such as Remade. In the future, subscription delivery services could deliver take-away food in special Bento Boxes like these, withdrawing those from the previous delivery.
