Industrial Coding - Phoenix Pizza Hut To Test Round Delivery Boxes

During the last week of October, news reports say that Pizza Hut intended to test out a new round delivery box from packaging company Zume at a Phoenix, AZ restaurant location.  The pre-molded, compostable fiber boxes were created as a sustainable alternative to cardboard.

 
Zume and Pizza Hut claim that in comparison to the traditional cardboard box typically used for pizza, the round box is comprised of less total packaging.  The round boxes are created using industrially compostable, sustainably harvested plant fiber and include grooves and ridges that work to keep cool air out while retaining hot air.  Zume also said that the crisp crust is maintained as the ridges create airflow and hold the pizza up from the box bottom, which separates the pizza from moisture and oil/grease.
 
The round Pizza Hut boxes require no assembly and are pre-molded, ready to use.  The boxes also nest when stacked, requiring less storage space in the restaurant and making delivery easier.
 
Pizza Hut and Zume worked in unison in developing a number of box features and types, testing various plant-based materials in an effort to learn how the box versions performed during delivery, at home, in-store, and in other circumstances.  Pizza Hut plans to consider expanding the use of the round compostable boxes following the Phoenix event.
