Proprietary tooling makes Placon's new tamper-evident containers possible


Placon, a manufacturer of thermoformed plastic packaging, has launched a new package that puts consumer food packaging safety at the forefront. The new Crystal Seal tamper-evident PET thermoformed food containers are 100% recyclable with a patent-pending feature that helps minimize the potential of food tampering.

The tamper-evident containers are available now in seven grab-and-go sizes from 8 to 64 oz.

The food containers feature no removable byproducts or tear-away pieces, which the company said not only minimizes potential choking hazards; but the double-hinged tamper-evident design also eliminates the necessity 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.
