15 Examples of Innovative Takeout Packaging

From Oven-Proof Pies to Convenient Italian Dinners

— July 20, 2017 — Lifestyle
Included in this cluster of innovative takeout packaging ideas are a variety of products that were created to increase consumer engagement.

Although there's plenty of examples from brands that have used bright colors and unconventional shapes to get consumers to buy, others have simply transformed the packaging that their food comes in to make it more convenient to eat. In addition, brands like Sushecō have adapted their packaging to be less harsh on the environment, with its reusable flat-packed sushi trays saving on both space and cost.

Another product that's included in these innovative takeout packaging ideas are the new bags and boxes from McDonald's, which were also transformed to be more environmentally friendly. Although the designs themselves are relatively simply, the fast food chain decided to bring more awareness to their importance by inviting designers to adapt them into couture fashion accessories.
