If you want great value food containers ready for party season and the festive period, you need look no further than Ampulla!

The packaging you use for takeaway or buffet food can seem unimportant, but it plays a vital role in keeping your food fresh, free from contamination, heat regulated and, most importantly, looking attractive to your customers. We are increasingly aware of the change in attitudes towards single use plastic products, with many people turning to glass and aluminium alternatives. Whilst this is fantastic news for our environment and we are pleased to see this, plastic does still have a place in the packaging industry. It’s lightweight and cheap, making it perfect for the takeaway, fast food and catering industries. All of our disposable food packaging is made from PET plastic, which is recyclable, so that you can get the benefits that using plastic brings and not have to worry about adding to the plastic waste issue. This usage is dependent on your company or your customers commitment to plastic recycling, therefore we do encourage that you have a recycling scheme in place or are strongly encouraging your customers to dispose of the containers responsibly.

Clear Plastic Disposable Food Packaging

Our clear PET trays and pots are great for packaging lunches on-the-go, from pasta and rice pots, to the more modern and hugely popular Buddha bowls! Our trays, pots and bowls all come complete with a matching clear press down lid to keep the food inside fresh for longer and easy to transport.

Our Clear Food Trays are available in 2 sizes: 500cc* and 1000cc. They would be an ideal item for catering companies to transport freshly prepared vol-au-vents, canapés and snacks in and lay out quickly and easily on buffet tables at events. Our Sauce Pots are equally as useful, as they can be used to dish out single servings of sauces and other condiments at large catering events. They are available in 5 different sizes: 20cc, 30cc, 50cc, 70cc and 80cc. Finally, our Salad Bowls are ideal for retailing in the meal deal market to cater to busy workers looking for a quick, convenient bite to eat. They come in 5 sizes: 250cc, 375cc, 500cc, 750cc and 1000cc.

*CC stands for cubic centimetre.

Feeling Saucy?

Sauce Bottles For Every Occasion

Ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, salad cream, vinegar, barbecue… there’s nothing we like more than to slather our food in these delicious condiments and sauces! For cafes, restaurants, fast food joints, having a wide range of sauces readily available is so important to keep customers happy. Whether you are a wholesale manufacturer of sauces, a restaurant owner or a new sauce brand looking to sell to the mass market, we’ve got plenty of packaging options for you!

For Wholesale & Catering

First up, our largest available sauce bottles: HDPE Sauce Bottles. These 4 litre monsters are ideal for use in burger vans, market stalls and cafes, due to the fact that they are large enough for customers to self-serve their own sauces and only have to be topped up or replaced every few hours or days depending on how your trade goes! We sell four varieties of our 4 Litre HDE Sauce Bottles: brown with screw cap, red with screw cap, brown with pump dispenser and red with pump dispenser. The choice of colours suit nicely to packaging tomato ketchup and brown sauce, but the decision is up to you! For wholesale business-to-business sales of sauce, then we recommend choosing the screw cap option in order to ensure secure transportation of goods, whilst cafes and stalls would ideally use the pump dispensers as it allows customers to dispense the sauces themselves. As well as being perfect for storing ketchup and brown sauce, these versatile containers could also be used for cooking oils and other foods.

Our 4 Litre Brown HDPE Sauce Bottle with Screw Cap will only set you back as little as 75p each when you buy in bulk quantities, or from £1.15 each in smaller orders. The screw cap is tamper evident, meaning that your customers have peace of mind about the quality and integrity of your sauce. The 4 Litre Red HDPE Sauce Bottle with Pump Dispenser will cost you as little £2.42 per unit when bought in bulk and starts from £3.72 per unit when bought in smaller quantities.

For Mass Market & Everyday Home Use

Obviously our 4 litre sauce bottles are way too big for the general public to take home and use at dinner time, so we have a number of alternative options for you to sell your sauce brand to the mass market – perfect for supermarket shelves! All of our plastic sauce bottles are made from PET, which is fully recyclable and a lighter, more durable alternative to glass. They come in many shapes and sizes, with the option to buy with or without a choice of lid, which include flip tops, pouring caps and screw caps, for sauces that can be used regularly by the whole family.

Our smallest plastic sauce bottle is the 150ml Square Plastic Bottle, which comes complete with a pouring cap that has a tamper evident pull seal. This bottle can be yours for just 94p per unit, or as little as 54p each when you buy in bulk. A slightly bigger option is our 180ml Plastic Squeezer Bottle, which comes with a flip top cap. This bottle is flexible and squeezable, so you can get all the saucy goodness out without much waste! Only 55p each, down to 37p each when you buy in bulk quantities. Finally, our 187ml Plastic Bottle is more suitable for dispensing thinner dressings such as vinegars and oils, rather than thick sauces like mayonnaise and ketchup. They will cost you only 56p per bottle, going down to a tiny 39p per bottle when bought in bulk quantities.

For Restaurants, Cafes & Local Producers

Plastic bottles just won’t cut it when you’re in a restaurant or cafe, so that’s where our glass sauce bottles come in! They’re sturdy, attractive and give off a more luxury feel than plastic does, making them ideal for placing on restaurant tables for customer use. As well as for use in food outlets, these glass bottles are more than suitable for selling high end sauce brands to the mass market.

If you need a small bottle to store your oils and dressings, then our 100ml Dorica Bottle is what you’ve been looking for! It comes complete with a 31.5mm black, tamper evident pourer cap, which is ideal for thinner sauces and gives a traditional look to your product. They can be yours at prices starting from 83p per bottle in small quantities, going down to as little as 51p each when bought in larger quantities. For an even more dramatic pouring effect, then look no further than the 100ml Marasca Bottle & Silver Pourer. The long spout of the pourer cap is made to give you more control about the dispensation of your drizzles and dressings, as well as just looking fantastic!
