Café Connections made their debut at the National Convenience Show this year to highlight the difference an experienced packaging supplier can make when you are looking to make the most of your food-2-go opportunities.
In a world driven by a need for speed and convenience, food-2-go is now an integral part of daily life and seen by many convenience stores and supermarkets as an important revenue stream.
The massive growth of the ‘grab and go’ culture has however also dramatically increased expectations. With such a wide choice now available to them from a variety of different outlets, customers are no longer prepared to settle for sub-standard snacks from their local store.
Whilst the menu and quality of the food on offer is of course of prime importance – the way that produce is packaged also has a major impact on your success.
Café Connections is a nationwide distributor of disposable food packaging who have been supplying the food-2-go sector for more than a decade.
Having been involved in extensive ‘hands on’ trials to determine materials which keep hot snacks in the best condition at point of sale, their stand focussed on the wide range of packaging that is available to deal with various products and situations.
There were plenty of other ideas on show too – from colourful hot cups, stylish deli and salad containers to some very inventive children’s packaging. Just a glimpse of the wide range of products available from this distributor who is able to offer more than 2,500 product lines for next working day delivery.
“A good distributor can do an awful lot more for you than just deliver boxes”, explained Café Connection’s sales director Wendy Ball. “We are constantly monitoring what is happening in the marketplace so that we can advise our customers of all the options open to them for any given application. You would be surprised at just how many ways there are to pack a sandwich or a hot pastry!”
There is also a dedicated production team who can help create a bespoke product from scratch if you need something special or if you want to brand.
“It’s our job to save our customers a great deal of time and worry and help them provide food-2-go that attracts custom – not just today but every day.”
