Growth in food subscription boxes drives the need for tamper evident security tape
January 29, 2021

With the demand of weekly and monthly subscriptions of recipe and menu boxes increasing, by up to 69% in the last 12 months, the security of these food boxes must now be a primary concern for suppliers.

The positives of less food waste, learning to prepare and cook new menus, speciality boxes for weight loss and specific food allergies, all combined with the reduction of the need for shopping trips, has been largely responsible for this amazing market growth, globally.

However, these delivery boxes are vulnerable to being tampered with on their journey from the kitchen or warehouse to the consumers doorstep.

Secured boxes ensure that customers will be safe in knowledge that the ingredients they have ordered are all delivered safely without tampering, replacement or removal.

Simple to apply, instant tamper evident security tape improving customer experience

The pressure sensitive tamper evident security tape reveals a message, which cannot be removed after the tape is peeled off the box. Another security feature of the tamper-evident tape is once it has been removed, it cannot be reapplied.

The permanent message on the box can be customised to suit your business marketing campaigns including QR codes to drive customers to your website or a warning message for example OPENED or SEALED FOR YOUR SAFETY.

Increase customer confidence on the contents of menu and boxes

“Trustpilot results demonstrate customers praise the quality of ingredients, lack of waste, tasty recipes and environmental awareness of the menu boxes but the negative comments are about delivery issues with lost or missing items. Our tamper evident tapes are able to reduce these issues, instantly” explained Harriet Chiles, General Manager at Tamper Technologies.

“Increasing customer confidence by delivering instant security on outer packaging for recipe and menu boxes, adding branding opportunities as well as security!”
