Grab & Go Packaging

SOLUTIONS DESIGNED TO GET YOUR PRODUCTS OFF THE SHELF AND ON THE GO!

Meeting the demand for variety – especially with the safety limitations of COVID-19 – poses a challenge for many foodservice operators. The right food packaging can make all the difference when you’re looking for variety in both flavour and function. Fortunately, Dart’s products are designed for life on the go and can support innovative snack and meal offerings as you serve your patrons. 

From grab and go snacks to pantry-loading supplies, the packaging you use can make the difference between sitting on the store shelf or becoming a sold-out fan favourite.

There are many ways to streamline your processes to get your food from line to shelf, but where do you start? Your packaging can provide a lot of opportunities! For efficient, quality food packaging solutions, just think DART.

DISPLAY

In the world of grab and go, your product needs to have the most shelf appeal along with the best taste. What do consumers want when they look at the shelf? A clear view of what’s inside and that “just-made” look to reinforce that the food is fresh.   

Package food in containers with less ribbing, more clarity and the right materials that will keep food fresh.

Containers that provide versatile options and reliably display hot or cold foods are a great choice. Made from a variety of materials, our products help you meet your customers wherever they are on their sustainability journey. From renewable resources to fully recyclable and everything in-between, our offerings make it easy to balance sustainability and performance.

With a wide range of products in different shapes and sizes, our solutions provide a clear and consistent look, wherever they are displayed. From clean lines to low profiles, our sturdy, versatile containers fade into the background, making your food the focal point.

RELIABLE

Getting through the production line is just the first step to delivering a great snack or meal to customers. Trucks, trains and planes can be inhospitable environments. You need reliable packaging with the strength and seal to hold up to jostles and pressure.

Whether your product is flash-frozen, shelf-stable or meant to be microwavable, we focus on finding the right solution for your food. Access to different shapes and sizes, resins and vented lid options, all from one company, means that you save time while we find the product that fits your needs. And with multiple locations throughout North America, you’ll be shipping fast thanks to a reliable supply of packaging consumables.

TAMPER-EVIDENT, TAMPER-RESISTANT

In 2018, 36% of consumers were purchasing groceries online. That number has increased to more than half as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. An increase in online ordering for both grocery pick-up and delivery is accompanied by higher food security expectations from customers.

The security of your food packaging is important for so many reasons, like:

  • Optimizing manual and automation resources
  • Reaching sustainability goals and meeting consumer preferences  
  • Protecting food whether it’s on the shelf or out for delivery

Our packaging can help you avoid extra costs from additional materials, labour, or processes associated with shrink bands.

SAFELY SERVE SNACKS AND MEALS AT ANY TIME

Snacks are small portions of food that are usually eaten between meals. They can be sweet or savoury, including packaged or processed foods and fresh produce such as fruits, vegetables, nuts or seeds. In Canada, fresh fruit is the most popular morning and evening snack. Ranking seventh in the worldwide snack market, Canada brought in nearly 6.5 billion U.S. dollars (Wunsch, 2020).

It has been reported that over 80% of Canadians have at least one snacking episode daily (Vatanparast, Islam, Patil, Shafiee, Smith, & Whiting, 2019). Additionally, 53% of those that snack reported snacking 2-3 times per day. It has also been shown that when consumers want a healthier snack that fresh fruit and vegetables are the go-to option for a large share of Canadians. In turn, when consumers are looking for these snacks, the grocery store has been reported as the most popular shopping location for snack foods (Wunsch, 2020).
