In the UK foodservice industry, visibility is the main ingredient for brand success and is almost as important as the food itself. The taste of menu items needs to be matched by the aesthetics and brand identity they project. Brand iT are a leader in printed greaseproof paper designs and we understand the value of appealing branding and great food. 
This is your guide to why custom printed greaseproof paper is not just a wrapping tool, but a substantial marketing platform that can, and does, elevate a brand’s image and reach. 

Capitalising on the UK’s hot QSR market with printed greaseproof paper 

Despite the UK enduring financial setbacks, consumers are still dining out and getting takeaways whenever they can. This is contributing to a surge in growth of the Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) market and thankfully, predictions of continued growth across the whole UK foodservice industry. 
The growth of fast, casual dining, particularly in the burger segment, has created a lucrative niche for those who spot and seize the right branding tactics. 

Printed greaseproof paper and the social media infatuation with food 

Consumer behaviour has been creating an unprecedented demand for unique methods of brand promotion and this is mostly stemming from the use of social media. Let’s face it, as a nation, the Brits love food, and we love sharing our love of food. 
Our smartphones don’t leave our hands, and when we’re eating, only delicious, food is more important than our digital companions. Taking and sharing photos of the food we eat and the places we dine in, was a natural evolution as technology has improved. 
Social media trends such as ‘unboxing’ videos has also driven an imperative for all brands to focus on the visual appeal of their packaging and it’s no different for food brands. Your brand’s success is now intrinsically linked to how Instagram-worthy your food and presentation is, and how easily they facilitate user generated content (UGC).
