RockTenn Corrugated Container presents mandrel case-forming technology that delivers increased strength while using less fiber as compared to RSCs.

Most commonly used for dairy beverages, this case design is also ideal for any bottled beverage product.
Airlite Plastics has launched a line of full-wrap IML square containers called the J Line.

Together, the containers and lids offer space-saving packaging with high-quality graphics and superior shelf appeal. The J line was originally available in 8-ounce, 12-ounce and 16-ounce sizes, but is expanding to include 2-pound and 3-pound containers.

clear crystallized polypropylene injection-molded dome. Both the lid and the base are individually wrapped with a shrink sleeve prior to shipping, which eliminates this extra step at the customer.

Stanpac’s latest tamper-evident ice cream packaging products are part of the SecurTEC family and now include 14-ounce, 16-ounce, 500-millileter, 32-ounce and 1-litre round packages as well as 48-ounce, 56-ounce, and 64-ounce non-round sizes. The tamper-evident feature is visible by the consumer at the point-of-purchase. Accidental removal that can occur on packaging lines and in distribution channels is prevented. With a simple snap-on application, no special equipment or additional floor space is required. Bold full-color lithographic printing and high-gloss varnish increase shelf appeal, and the packaging enables producers to improve line efficiencies, optimize package safety and protect their brand.
