What would be a concise and accurate Chinese translation of Takeaway beside the food taken home from a restaurant-外卖?

Thanks,

Chinese translation:打包
Explanation:
when a customer is at the restaurant and ordering the food for takeaway, it's called "打包"

when a customer is making the order remotely (via phone or mobile APP, etc.), it's called "外卖“

I hope this make sense.

Or if you are asking about the totally different context, like "what's the takeaway of today's conference", that will be "收获“
