With Spring in the air and summer on the way, we have put together our guide to the top 5 sustainable options for the perfect takeaway afternoon tea packaging. We have selected eco-friendly packaging for you; all you must do is wow your customers with your sweet and savoury delights.

Platter Boxes

Available in 3 different sizes and with the option to add our robust dividing trays, it is the perfect way to present a myriad of classic afternoon tea favourites.  Our platter boxes for afternoon tea are an ideal packet-filler, whether it be sandwiches, savoury delights, or sweet treats.
