Crafty Ramen Restaurants Partner with Friendlier to Offer Sustainable Packaging


GUELPH, Ont. — Crafty Ramen restaurants in Guelph and Kitchener Ont. have offered re-usable packaging options for all takeout orders, in partnership with Friendlier. 

By agreeing to a small refundable deposit with the purchase of any takeout item at Crafty Ramen, customers can enjoy their meal at home, scan the QR code on the container and then return it completely contact-free to local Friendlier partner drop bin.

“As an innovator in the food-and-beverage industry, we believe that Crafty Ramen is a great fit for this program,” says Kayli Dale, co-founder and CEO of Friendlier. “Together, we will help deliver delicious ramen, without the waste that is typically associated with takeout meals.”

“At Crafty, we’re challenging ourselves to understand our environmental impact, learn where we can do better and explore meaningful ways to adjust our processes,” says Khalil Khamis, Crafty Ramen partner and CEO. “Our partnership with the Friendlier program gives us the tools to engage in positive change by offering a more sustainable experience through our restaurants.”

“The International Solid Waste association estimated that single-use waste has increased by 250 to 300 per cent as a result of the pandemic. It is incredible to see businesses like Crafty Ramen taking action against statistics like this by offering re-usable options,” says Jacquie Hutchings, co-founder and COO of Friendlier.
