After analysing the latest consumer trends, Contital has introduced the Eclipse line, featuring elegant black and gold lacquered aluminium containers that can be closed with recyclable lids, providing an ideal solution to enhance both food delivery and takeaway services. These containers are suitable for use in both traditional and microwave ovens and are safe for use with all types of food, including acidic and salty dishes, ensuring perfect packaging for any gourmet meal. Extra-rigid and 100% sustainable, the Eclipse containers are the ideal choice for the high-end catering industry, ensuring that gourmet meals can be presented with excellence, even in takeaway scenarios.
