Placon introduces the new version of its Envisions plastic food packaging trays and lids. The black and clear FDA approved food containers are made from Placon’s EcoStar post-consumer recycled (PCR), curbside collected PET bottles and thermoforms which contain a minimum of 30%, up to 100%, PCR content, company officials say.
The contemporary packaging is designed to create shelf impact with a sleek lid and base geometry that has no protruding tabs for a smooth, clean look that makes food the focus. The lid is designed for easy opening and closing with a tight inside lid seal providing a nice snap closure for high leak resistance.
“Envisions is a recycled packaging line that is both elegant and functional,” says Jeff Lucash, Placon’s director of sales - stock products. “The deep bases feature a raised grid pattern that’s attractive, keeps foods from sliding around while allowing liquids to drain away from the food. The shallow bases have a high dome lid with a large angled window that lets customers see fresh food no matter how it’s displayed - whether stacked 3, 4 or 5 high, you get clear, unobstructed viewing."
