Large cap beverage container
Elopak’s 900 milliliter slim Pure-Pak Diamond carton with the curve feature has a tall and slender design. Combined with the Diamond top elongated panel and the bow shape, the carton has space for a bigger closure. This is a key consumer-pleaser with the larger cap making for easier opening and better pouring — with less splashing and less waste, according to the company. The carton can be used for dairy and juice products.

The cup is made of thermoformed white polypropylene with printed shrink sleeve in rotogravure using combination of matte and shine varnish. The lid is a full-color printed aluminum foil.

FFS cups with shrink-sleeve label
Sacmi’s in-line sleeving system integrated in the form, fill and seal (FFS) machine makes it convenient to produce cups in-house versus premade containers, according to the company. The system features a single piece of equipment for FFS, plus sleeving process. It uses limited floor space and has flexibility in decoration to comply with product change-over. Indian dairy Chitale uses the system for traditional yogurt in 7-and 14-ounce tubs.
Side-car container for yogurts/desserts

Tamper evident composite closures
Stanpac has developed the SecurTEC line of tamper evident composite closures for the ice cream and frozen dessert markets. The technology provides a tamper-evident feature without added materials, extra equipment or labor, or slower line speeds. The solution is a simple snap-on application, accomplished with regular lidding equipment. A tear-band connected to the body of the over-cap locks onto the rim of the container, allowing customers to visually see if product tampering has occurred prior to purchase.
