Wahaca Bespoke Taco Box

Share this article


Tacos are notoriously hard to package due to the number of ingredients and food layers involved.

Most taco takeaway systems are not fit for purpose. They use a generic tray and lid with the inclusion of a taco insert. This makes it hard to retain heat, keep tacos intact and allow for good presentation once delivered. As well as being far too large for the actual product.

Wahaca wanted a sustainable bespoke takeaway solution for their signature taco dishes. Their brief had three objectives:
1. Reduce the environmental impact
2. Maintain the same quality and experience as instore consumption
3. Reduce packaging costs

BioPak developed the first-ever dedicated home compostable printed plant fibre taco box with no added PFAS. The results:
– 42% reduction in packaging weight and material usage. That’s 12 tonnes less material per year!
– 9 tonnes of plastic removed each year.
– 69% reduction in CO2 emissions translating to 45 tonnes of CO2 emissions avoided per year!
– 37% reduction in packaging cost.
