Airline Foods and Retail Snacks

Pack Design and Lightweighting for Airlines and Retail Chains

This represents a unique and fast developing opportunity for niche and large scale producers. Airline foods, their packaging presentation and routes through to on-board airline catering, need to be competitive, innovative, incorporate spatial awareness and be cost effective. It’s the same for the major coffee and food to go retailers. We have considerable packaging experience in these areas – premium travel across to fast retail – design to production.
