Castaway Expands Its Enviroboard® Range
Posted: 19 Jun 2020

Market Outlook

There’s no denying food delivery apps such as UberEats or Menulog are popular, and that the demand for takeaway food is growing at a rapid pace across Australia.

In fact, the Eating Out in Australia publication found Australians are spending a staggering $1.6 billion each year on takeaway and a daily average of $4.5 million. This means that, on average, about half of Australian households have at least one person ordering takeaway food everyday.

Enviroboard® – a more sustainable choice

Combining sustainable design with exceptional performance, this new expansion to the company’s Enviroboard® range was developed in response to the growing demand of food operators for delivery and takeaway packaging.

The Enviroboard® existing range includes food clams, plates, trays, and cutlery – offering a more sustainable replacement for conventional plastic and polystyrene takeaway containers. One of Castaway’s key consideration for the Enviroboard® range expansion was to ensure its new packaging designs reflected the sustainable ethos behind its brand.

The Enviroboard® new containers are made using sugarcane pulp – a rapidly renewable resource and a by-product of the sugarcane production, while the matching lids are made from at least 50% post-consumer recycled PET.

Eating starts with the eyes

Food packaging and food presentation is a big part of the customer experience for quick service restaurants. The challenge is to deliver food that looks and tastes as good as it does in the restaurant. It is important that food operators choose packaging that secures, protects and promotes the contents perfectly.

Using a packaging that helps preserve that freshly-made appearance and maintain the temperature is key – this can be achieved with Enviroboard® new containers and leak-proof lids.

Enviroboard® – Here to deliver

At Castaway, we understand that the value of your products and services depends on the packaging it comes in, and hence we are committed to delivering only the best to all our customers.

Suitable for hot & cold food

Enviroboard® containers are suitable for hot and cold food. This will help reach a wider variety of food operators including retailers, restaurants, cafes, food trucks, festivals, etc

Food safe

By using sugarcane bagasse, which has no taste, odour or harmful additives, the packaging is microwavable and ovenable, and maintains taste and flavour at any time.

Home Compostable

Made of sugarcane bagasse – the dry residue left after sugarcane fibre has been pressed for juice, these containers are home compostable, and will naturally degrade into a nutrient rich compost without leaving any toxic residue.

Ideal for takeout & delivery

Bagasse is naturally grease and moisture resistant, and allows the packaging to retain liquids and food for a longer period of time while the lids prevent any spillage in transit.
