What type of poly packaging would you like to have: one similar to a “Buffet” or an “A La Carte” dining experience?  Clearly, the choice you make determines the quality of the product you receive.

At TDI, we provide an extensive menu of “ingredients” that are customized to your personal requirements. So let’s compare the two options, just to be clear.

Whenever you eat at a buffet restaurant, you probably notice the limited menu choices. Here, you are able to select from a row of dishes presented on warming platters.

Clearly, everything is made in advance for self-serve. Maybe it was reheated or overcooked? Of course that may affect the food quality.

And so it is with stock items in poly packaging: there’s only certain offerings with limited quantities. No customizations are possible. Also, the quality and service might not be up-to-par.

With à la carte, you will dine at a nice sit-down restaurant where you can choose from a menu. There’s options to customize your plate to your own liking. 

In addition, a team of staff is available to provide you with excellent personal attention. They will accommodate any special requests, such as no salt, vegetarian, or gluten free. 

Overall, the food, quality, and service are all focused on giving you a delightful experience.
