5 Tips to transform food packaging

Whether you have just started your restaurant business or run it for years, customising a food packaging box is what most of you struggle with. That’s why we put up 5 tips to transform food packaging in Malaysia. Check it out!

1. Practical food packaging for delivery and takeaway.

First of all, the design of food packaging depends on the food you are selling. Make it easy for the delivery agent and customer to carry and still keep food neat in place. No one likes to see food splashing around.

2. Look out for leakproof and microwavable feature.

Malaysian cuisine comes with much gravy such as sambal, curry and sauces. Leakproof food packaging keeps customer table clean by the time they finish it. Check with your supplier specifically to ensure it is certified to withstand microwave heat.

3. Be active on social media.

People don’t just buy products anymore, they buy the companies that make the products, the values they represent and what they stand for. Hence, get LIVE on social media twice a day to connect with fans.

4. Throw contests and celebrate festive seasons together.

Be a Malaysian! Celebrate all the festive seasons with customers proudly. Remember that having fun together is what friends do! Look for a fully customisable food packaging box with low minimum order quantity so you can frequently change designs for all occasions.

5. Create an MVP (Most Valuable Product) to get viral.

Ultimately, a long menu doesn’t mean great. It is worth finding out your MVP and put resources to market it. Your customers must know your unique selling point so they can help you spread it out. Turn the customers into an ambassador.

Is there a food lover who doesn’t get “WOW!” by a stylish and yummy food presentation?
