Meet Your New Fish and Chip Box Suppliers
Traditionally, fish and chip boxes are constructed with Kraft paper on the outside and recycled paper on the inside. However, this method requires the addition of a food-safe layer, such as greaseproof paper, to protect the food from direct contact with the box. Recognising the need for a better solution, we’ve innovatively switched the paper arrangement. Now, the Kraft paper is placed inside the box, ensuring it directly interfaces with the food.
By making this simple yet significant change, we have eliminated the necessity for an additional food-safe layer, providing a safer and more convenient packaging option for your culinary delights. Rest assured, our Kraft virgin paper meets the highest food-grade standards, giving you peace of mind and allowing your food to be in direct contact with a safe and reliable material.
We understand the importance of transparency and regulatory compliance. If you require a copy of the food-grade certification for your specific operational needs, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We are committed to supporting your business with the highest quality, food-safe packaging solutions.
Key Features of Our Wholesale (190x110x50mm) Fish and Chip Boxes
The densely packed fibres of the Kraft paper create a formidable barrier against grease, significantly reducing absorption into the cardboard.
Excessive grease absorption can render fish and chip boxes non-recyclable. With our innovative approach to crafting fish and chip boxes, this concern has become a thing of the past. Our fish and chip boxes are designed to minimise grease absorption, ensuring that most of our food packaging boxes remain fully recyclable after use.
In addition to our wide range of food-grade sustainable products, we take great pride in the quality and reliability of our manufacturing and storage facilities. Our facilities meet industry standards and hold BRC accreditation. We are committed to providing sustainable and reliable packaging solutions while maintaining the utmost focus on food safety.
Why Eco-Friendly Fish and Chip Packaging Matters
Storing cardboard and paper for extended periods before processing can lead to unwanted consequences. Over time, any lingering food and grease residue on these materials can turn rancid, attracting insects and animals and creating an unsanitary environment.
To ensure proper recycling, cardboard undergoes a thorough cleansing process. It is washed with soapy water and a combination of chemicals to remove coloured inks and glue. Subsequently, the cardboard is mixed with water, forming a slurry. However, effectively removing oil and grease requires rigorous scrubbing. Consequently, the slurry turns into a water-oil mixture, making separating the oil from the paper fibres challenging. The presence of greasy takeaway boxes in a recycling batch can contaminate the entire process, rendering it unusable.
Another significant challenge in the recycling process is the issue of “wish cycling.” This occurs when non-recyclable waste is placed in recycling bins due to an assumption or desire for it to be recyclable. This practice can lead to complications during recycling, as even a single non-recyclable item can contaminate an entire batch of clean cardboard if not identified early on.
At Packaging Supplies, we are staunch proponents of the circular economy. Within the realm of packaging materials, paper is leading the charge with an impressive 85.5% recycling rate in the EU. We prioritise environmental responsibility and fully comply with environmental legislation. In fact, we achieved official carbon neutrality. Our commitment to sustainability is reflected in our cardboard fish and chip boxes, which are crafted from 80% recycled paper and 20% sustainably sourced wood from forests dedicated to maintaining ecological balance.

Kraft is considered food-grade due to its specific manufacturing process and the materials used. It is made from virgin wood pulp that undergoes a chemical pulping process, removing impurities and producing strong, durable and natural brown paper. Kraft paper is free from toxic chemicals, additives and contaminants that could leach into food.
The wood fibres used to make Kraft paper are carefully selected and processed to meet strict quality and safety standards for food contact. The paper is produced in a controlled environment to ensure hygiene and prevent contamination during manufacturing. Plus, fish and chip boxes have been approved in accordance with high food safety standards, as demonstrated by our BRCGS certification (British Reputation Compliance Global Standards). This certification covers the storage of food and non-food grade packaging, including stationery items for restaurant groups and contract packing of individually packaged food sachets into retail and wholesaler packs. With this certification, be assured our packaging meets stringent requirements for food safety, giving you peace of mind when using our products.
