NEW YORK, April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In partnership with manufacturing partners Pratt Industries and Smurfit-Stone Container Corporation, Ecovention, LLC is pleased to announce the launch of the ROMA "Serve & Store" pizza box. Available exclusively through PERFORMANCE Foodservice/ROMA Food, the ROMA "Serve & Store" is based on Ecovention's patented GreenBox technology. Easy to assemble, the ROMA "Serve & Store" breaks down into plates and a smaller container for leftovers, eliminating the need for disposable plates and ancillary storage materials like aluminum foil and plastic wrap. The technology elevates take-out pizza to a new level of convenience and creates an effective source of differentiation for pizzerias, restaurants and chains.
The technology utilized by the ROMA Food "Serve & Store" has already received an enthusiastic response from both restaurants and consumers after being placed in the spotlight by Ashton Kutcher via a "tweet" to his Twitter followers. Since then, it has been the subject of various news segments and newspaper articles, has been featured in hundreds of Internet blogs and has been the talk of social networking sites around the world. The Company's demonstration video for the GreenBox technology has already garnered over 1 million views on YouTube (http://tinyurl.com/ckbawe).
