9 Uses for Hot/Cold Food Containers

June 03, 2020

Do you need a disposable and environmentally friendly, all-purpose to-go container?

Poly-coated, paper cup-type food containers are a great choice. They are moisture resistant, and have tight fitting lids (plastic or paper) that help prevent leaks. Additionally, the cups can hold food ranging from 32º F to 212º F and are microwavable! With their form, features and size options, they are one of the most versatile food containers. Here are 9 different types of food you could transport and serve in these containers:

Ice cream – The cup shape makes these perfect for those customers who don’t want a cone.

Soup – Great for transport and eating out of, plus the tight lids will help keep the soup from spilling.

Chicken Nuggets – Whether you’re a street vendor, a deli, or a restaurant, these containers are great for holding chicken nuggets or tenders.

Stir Fry – With the larger sizes in mind, these containers can hold a meal. Want to keep the rice and stir fry separate? Two containers will do just fine.

Pasta Dishes – Whether it’s a creamy dish or a red sauce base, it can be securely transported in one of these containers.

Salad – Transport salad with no worries of spilling veggies or dressing.

Acai Bowl – Presentation still counts! You can serve these for people to take on the go.

Fruit – These are great fruit cups, plain and simple.

Meal Sides – Other common sides like mac and cheese, rice, potatoes—mashed, wedges, boiled—or roasted veggies hold up well in these containers.
