Tri-Star Packaging has launched a range of stylish rPET Retro Wedges that hark back to that golden decade when it was cool to be colourful – the 1980s.
Available in blue, yellow, red and green, the new packs are made from recycled materials and are recyclable after use – a first for coloured wedges. With a funky design that offers great shelf-standout, the Retro Wedges create an unforgettable point of difference in any café or sandwich shop and tap into the current trend for retro-style products.
Tri-Star’s Retro Wedges are less expensive than card equivalents and are available from stock – not made to order. They are also heat-sealable for optimum product freshness.
Besides their eye-catching design, the Retro Wedges also offer practical benefits. Food-to-go businesses and caterers can use them to colour-code product ranges – for example: green for vegetarian, blue for fish, red for meat products, and so on. Alternatively, by adding in black and clear wedges to the selection, they present possibilities for easy stock rotation, with a different colour for six days of the week.
Kevin Curran, managing director of Tri-Star, said: “The 1980s are remembered fondly for many reasons, but none more so than the fashion for very bright colours. Our new rPET Retro Wedges successfully re-create the feel of this vivid decade with a snazzy look that’s sure to resonate with customers of all ages. But make no mistake – they may have an old-school look to them, but our new Retro Wedges offer the very latest technology in terms of their performance and sustainability credentials, and all at a very competitive price that keeps costs down while adding value."
