PRESS RELEASE

Westpak Group Ltd have unveiled their latest foodservice packaging innovation. The new ‘StikLok’ range of ‘tamper-evident’ delivery bags have been developed to reduce customer complaints of missing food, reduce operation costs and provide a reliable solution to safeguard against food tampering. These recyclable paper bags are available in many sizes, with or without handles and can accommodate printing for full brand impact.

Tamper-evident bags & foodservice delivery platforms.

Major foodservice and restaurant brands are leaning more heavily than ever on third-party food delivery platforms, yet a persistent packaging issue remains through these delivery channels. Once delivery bags leave restaurant premises, foodservice brands lose control over the security of the packaged food. Delivery bags can easily be opened, resulting in a surge of customer complaints reporting missing items. This poses a significant operational cost, both for restaurant brands and their third-party delivery platforms.

Foodservice brands have attempted to deal with this issue through a number of approaches, each of which has shown notable disadvantages. Stickers placed over closed delivery bags increase packaging costs, create additional packaging items that complicate stock management, and present a challenge in ensuring seal labels are consistently applied correctly. A common alternative solution, staples also present a number of issues. This primarily centres around food safety concerns either when sealing or opening the bag.

Westpak's 'StikLok' solution.

Westpak’s new ‘StikLok’ delivery bag innovation provides a reliable alternative solution. The ‘StikLok’ range of foodservice delivery bags feature large, single-use adhesive strips to create robust closure seals, thus completely avoiding the use of staples or stickers.

Being manufactured from paper, StikLok bags remain fully compatible with standardised UK recycling systems. The StikLok bag range was initially unveiled with ‘large’ and ‘small’ size specifications, both available in ‘Brown Kraft’ and ‘White’ colour options. However, bags are also able to be created with bespoke dimensions to suit more individualised foodservice packaging requirements. The bags are also available either with twisted handles or without handles altogether. Handle options use a robust twisted design that’s securely attached behind the adhesive strip.

The StikLok range was officially unveiled by Westpak at the 2024 ‘Packaging Innovations’ event held at the NEC, Birmingham in February 2024.

Seth Hicks, Managing Director at Westpak commented on this latest innovation, “the UK’s foodservice industry has been in need of an easy-to-use, reliable and safe carry bag sealing system to really put consumers’ minds at ease when it comes to food contamination. We’re sure this new design will introduce a new standard for widespread uptake across the takeaway and delivery markets”.
