CASE STUDY – NEAT BURGER #GAMECHANGER

Neat Burger in Princes Street, London

At Packaging Environmental, we understand that not all businesses are the same, and our customers have different requirements based on their services, products and location. This encourages us to give the best of our business and bring you the best packaging services according to your needs!

Today we are proud to introduce you to one of our customers: Neat Burger! Read in their own words about how their business has become a #GAMECHANGER in the burger chain industry and why they have decided to work with us at Packaging Environmental.

A bite closer to changing the world.

Neat Burger has applied its own modern twist on fast-food classics. The London-based multi-site eatery is the world’s first plant-based sustainable burger chain.

The vegan burger chain offers a menu that appeals to those who follow plant-based diets and meat-eaters who want to eat healthier, more sustainable and delicious meat-free dishes.

Championed by ambassador and Formula One supremo Lewis Hamilton, Neat satisfies everyone’s craving for American style food that tastes just like the real thing with the bonus of being plant-based and good for the planet.

Hi Daniel, it’s lovely to meet you!

Could you tell us who Neat Burger are and how did it begin?

Neat Burger was founded in September 2019 as a desire for change – a restaurant with environmental benefits that aims to have ‘’A positive impact on both your stomach and the environment’’.

Neat Burger is the first plant-based sustainable burger chain in the world. Part of its success is that it is made for everyone, from plan-based diets to meat-eaters. The purpose of it is to encourage people to eat less meat.

What has been the biggest challenge Neat Burger has been presented with to date?

The pandemic was a big challenge for us in all aspects. It was only six months before the pandemic hit, forcing us to shift its then ambitious growth strategy of expanding to a further five dine-in sites in 2020 to fit a dramatically different place.

Staffing was also a big concern. Customers are our priority. Therefore, engaging with them is essential from the moment they cross our doors. However, keeping that culture and employee advocacy has been challenging due to all the safety rules, opening and closings, work absences and concerns of our staff, and other COVID related measures.

But it’s how we adapted to it that matters. So, we implemented new strategies to keep offering our customers our best service by providing a unique experience from the people who formed Neat Burger while ensuring the safety of the customers.

Now, in 2022 we can be proud to say that we successfully faced those difficult times and are expanding to the US and Europe.

What’s Neat Burgers’ approach to the environment?

We want to change the game. That’s why everything at Neat Burger is plant-based, from our Burgers to our packaging. We want to help the environment while offering mouth-watering quality food. 

‘’ The full-flavoured, game-changer dedicated to feeding you with one hand & saving the world with the other…’’

In addition to our sustainable day-to-day actions, Neat Burger works in partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects – A California-based charity. A tree is planted for every product sold, so your positive impact is doubled with every burger sold! That’s a lot of trees!

Sustainable plant-based packaging? We want to hear you!

Neat Burger goes beyond meat and plastics! 

Since the company was launched, our packaging has been plant-based. However, it has changed A LOT over time. As you can imagine, our first packaging wasn’t 100% what we wanted. Our two main challenges packaging wise were that firstly, some of the current packaging didn’t even exist until our supplier (Packaging Environmental) came up with a custom design solution. And locating sustainable packaging items that are environmentally friendly and practical at the same time can be tricky if you don’t have the right assistance through the process. 

It took time to find the best packaging options for our food to keep its quality while representing the brand’s essence. 

That’s why we decided to work shoulder to shoulder with Packaging Environmental.

A great example to illustrate this is our sustainable friendly hot Dog box. A brand-new product Packaging Environmental designed for us!

We heard there is something behind NEAT Burger’s name, what is it?

There is a rumour that NEAT is an acronym for No Eating Animals Today. Although it matches the core values of our restaurant, it’s not the reason for our name or an acronym we came up with.
