Recyclable Food Boxes & Deli Trays

Probably best known as a Gift Tray, the humble card tray has been a WBC bestseller for many years now. For speedy gifting, there’s just nothing better. They’re simple to construct, they come flat-packed for easy storage and they’re available in a range of contemporary colours to suit your company branding.


But with the onset of covid and current restrictions on dining-in, the knock-on effect it’s had on the demand for food delivery has many retailers turning to the card tray as a ready-made Food To Go or take-home solution.

While the tray is water and spill-proof when used with a clear acetate lid, if you intend for it to come into contact with food, we recommend using waxed paper as a base, which we sell separately.


Using card trays for disposable takeaway food packaging makes portioning easy. They come in great single-serve sizes that make them as convenient for the server as the consumer. And as trays come flat-packed and built in seconds, it’s super easy to roll out ‘food to go’ catering services on mass.


Food trays are a great way for restaurants, farm shops, concessions and over-the-counter delis to turn their business model into a truly take home service. Quickly dish out and serve up on the go.


Specially designed acetate lids can be purchased separately plain or printed with your company name and logo using WBC’s 7-10 days personalisation service. Just send us your artwork and leave the rest to us!
