IPL Plastics introduces new food containers
Manufacturer of plastic products IPL Plastics is launching two new sizes of containers for the food industry. Both container sizes are said to be tamper evident and IML capable, for products such as soup, sauce, dips and gravy in the UK and Europe.
Complementing its existing food range packaging, new tooling has been developed at the Protech Plastics Cork facility to produce these containers, available in 365ml and 670ml capacities for the consumer market. With a large output and capacity, coupled with low minimum order requirement capabilities, Protech’s supply and logistics arrangements allow for any order size.
According to the company, both products will not panel under hot fill/blast chilling operations due to enhanced design features. Available in high-clarity polypropylene or in an unlimited range of colours, the tubs come unlabelled from stock allowing for off line post mould labelling or printing, as well as high definition premium IML decoration across the range (tub and lid).
IPL Plastics maintains that it offers the food manufacturer a broad range of standard sizes with no investment and with the option to have custom made IML labels applied during moulding.
IML offers a high level of decoration, with good quality representation of customer products for all industries, giving the product an increased chance to stand out on the shelf, the company says.
Jamie Clark, director of retail sales at IPL Plastics Europe, comments, “These two new sizes are a welcome addition to our existing food range, which are all now IML-capable. Our dedicated team at Protech Cork has developed these containers with food manufacturers in mind ensuring they can be hot-filled and with highly effective and easy to operate tamper-proofing.
“We now have a very diverse range of food packaging items which complement our existing range of dairy and food containers, all manufactured in a brand new BRC Grade AA accredited production environment.”
