Food service packaging is changing the way we eat
Food service

In an industry with few new stories left to tell, a small company named GreenDustries is making a big name by revolutionizing the foodservice packaging industry. GreenDustries is changing the way people eat fast food with its two proprietary packages: the PleatPak (for burgers and sandwiches) and the Magic Bag (for French fries and finger foods). The packaging provides the consumer with a superior consumption experience as it eliminates messy stains and cold, soggy food by using its pleated technology.



The PleatPak and Magic Bag are manufactured to perfectly fit the contours of the food it is intended to contain. Other packaging products in the foodservice segment are merely different configurations of flat (sheet) wraps, boxes and bags that have been around for a long time.


The PleatPak's pleated package snugly surrounds and clutches the sandwich keeping the burger and toppings in place - amazingly, even if tossed high in the air, or even against the wall! The PleatPak provides the consumer a sanitary way to eat out of the PleatPak and prevents condiments from spilling onto ones lap. It allows the sandwich to be eaten comfortably and neatly with just one hand. The company say the PleatPak is also the best solution for the nearly 70 percent of fast food consumers who order from the drive-thru window, many of whom eat in the car.


The Magic Bag - as its name suggests - is full of tricks by simply expanding its pleats. The Magic Bag stands on its own, spreads out to form a pouch, transforms into a basket and is the ultimate packaging solution for French fries and all other finger foods. It allows you to eat in the most convenient way, whether you are sitting at a table, walking, in a car, or sharing with friends. The Magic Bag also provides superior heat-retention keeping the food warmer and crispier throughout consumption.


The PleatPak is already being used at several iconic place,s including Yankee Stadium and Madison Square Garden in New York City. At Madison Square Garden you can find the PleatPak being used by renowned culinary professionals at their premiere establishments, like Simply Chicken by Chef Jean Georges, and the Daily Burger by restaurateur Drew Nieporent. In addition, the PleatPak and Magic Bag are popping up at regional chains throughout North America, including Hero Certified Burger, Energy Kitchen and Bumpers Drive-In. It is also used at many universities, food trucks, stand-alone locations and carried by many distributors. It is no coincidence that this innovative, functional, and sustainable packaging has won numerous prestigious awards.


The simple packaging products from GreenDustries also offer a sustainable solution, With its tailored design, the PleatPak and Magic Bag use less material in their construction than competitive products.  GreenDustries claims to have one of the smallest carbon footprints for to-go food packaging. In addition, the products are made using 100 percent recycled paper. These superior "green" qualities have earned GreenDustries the endorsement of several environmental groups.
