According to McKinsey and Company, the business of delivering restaurant meals to homes will be undergoing rapid change as new online platforms race to capture markets and customers across the Americas, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. Worldwide, the market for food delivery stands at €83 billion, or 1% of the total food market and 4% of food sold through restaurants and fast-food chains. Meal delivery has already matured in most countries, with an overall annual growth rate estimated at just 3.5% for the next five years.1
Mariella Jaeger, Director of Marketing and Innovation at INDEVCO Paper Containers, who developed BOXtoGOShop.com, explains, “With the increasing number of single households requiring more takeaway and delivery food services, the market needs in the foodservice sector are being reshaped. From the growing need for eco-friendly packaging to the main concerns regarding food safety, and the need to brand differentiation to the growing e-commerce platforms, all those factors have helped us put together one solution to a remarkably growing segment that is becoming more and more sophisticated. ‘Small orders. Big solutions.’ Our first product line is ready to go.”
