What is VENTiT all about?
VENTiT is the world first breathing box.By using the structure of corrugation, the box provides effective ventilation for hot food delivaries. This unique packaging innovation allows for food to remain fresher for longer.
Understanding the limitations of the current box design
To provide ventilation, the existing pizza boxes provide for either slits or holes on the side. Neither of these effective as most of steam generated by the pizza is realised above and below the pizza and not through the sides. Additionally, holes provided on sides make the box prone to contamination and heat loss.
No ventilation outlets are provided on the top or bottom (where it is needed most) due to the fear of contamination.
Science behind sogginess of the pizza base
When a hot pizza is placed in a pizza box, there is steam generated within. Maximum of this steam is generated above and below the pizza. With no available exit, this steam bounces back and forth between the box and the dough and is eventually absorbed by the dough. This causes the base of the pizza to become soggy and the top of the pizza to become sweaty.
Challenges in providing an effective ventilation solution
- To provide ventilation on the top and bottom of the box (where it's needed most) without any fear of contamination and heat loss
- Ease in implementation with respect to the manufacturing process
- Maintaining the overall costs, as a pizza box is a low cost low margin item
For the first time in the history of corrugated packaging, we have been able to successfully develop a ventilation solution that meets all the above constraints i.e. low costs, maintaining the integrity of the box and its contents, no fear of contamination and retaining the maximum heat of the food,so it can taste fresher.
Key Features of a VENTiT Box
- Ventilation: It Provides ventilation Above and below the hot food, eliminating steam condensation and enhancing the temperature inside. The result is less soggy food and a better overall eating experience.
- No Fear of Contamination: The box is fully enclosed such that even light can't pass through. since there re no through holes there is no fear of contamination.
- Insulation: Heat remains trapped within the flute channel, resulting in better retention of heat inside the box.
- Marketability: The VENTiT box offers a great advertising tool through TV and print media. Additionally, innovative graphical ventilation cut-outs of the box can be creatively used in different shapes and sizes.
- Cost-effective solution: Since no additional material is needed to manufacture the VENTiT box, there is a minimum effect on cost.
