Skin packaging

Tamper-evident food containers

By Gretchen Edelbrock, Products Editor

A saladWith no removable byproducts or tear-away pieces, minimizing potential choking hazards, the food containers’ double-hinged tamper-evident design eliminates the need for shrink bands or tamper-evident labels. The plastic packaging’s offset, recessed cavity instructional tabs ensure easy gripping and opening while the leak-resistant design ensures no messes or spills either in store aisles or while on the go.

The tamper-evident containers are produced from EcoStar RPET-F food-grade sheet manufactured with post-consumer recycled content from bottles and thermoforms.

Strong and stackable, the food packaging containers are easy to separate by hand or via automation with minimal ribbing on sidewalls to provide great product visibility. Designed for retailers, brand owners, and food processors looking for safe packaging that is environmentally responsible, the new recyclable plastic containers safely and attractively display deli and to-go foods from sandwiches and salads, deli pasta salads, salsas, single serve desserts, and dry packed foods.

Skin Pack

Skin pack, or skin packaging, is a type of carded packaging where a product (or products) is placed on a piece of paperboard , and a thin sheet of transparent plastic is placed over the product and paperboard.

The printed paperboard usually has a heat-seal coating. The plastic film (LDPE, PVC, ionomer, etc.) is softened by heat and draped over the product on the card. Vacuum is sometimes used to assist a firm fit. The film bonds to the heat-seal coating on the paperboard. The skin-packed piece then may need to be cut into individual units.

Skin packaging somewhat resembles a blister pack, with the major difference being that the plastic surrounding the product is formed over the product, instead of being pre-formed.
