Wrapping fish and chips in newspaper may have been banned since the 1980’s, but JJ is bringing the retro-vibe back!

A range of food safe, newspaper-effect takeaway boxes have been launched following feedback from fish and chip shop customers.

In an exclusive JJ survey conducted with UK chippies*, 45% of shops said they wanted a newspaper-effect box design.

When shopping for packaging, 84% of shop owners said that price is crucial.

This was followed by quality (70%), heat retention (65%) and sturdiness (48%). 40% specifically asked for bio-degradable or compostable options.

Tailor-made for fish and chip shops

“Our team has been working hard to come up with a design that combines all this feedback,” said JJ’s Marketing Manager, Omar El-Haj.  

“The result is a robust, eye-catching box that keeps food hot and crispy while being biodegradable and compostable,” he said.

With the Staycation boom expected to benefit UK hospitality, 97% of shops said they expect to need more packaging in 2021.

“We are always adding to our range and will continue to offer quality packaging at great prices,” said Omar.

The easy-to-build boxes are available in 5″, 9″, 10″ and 12″, priced from just £0.06p per box.
