Tri-Star Packaging unveils new tamper-resistant PET containers

UK-based Tri-Star Packaging has launched a new range of tamper-resistant containers manufactured from rPET. The Tri-Pack with SureStrip containers feature the built-in tamper-resistant mechanism created by Sabert.

According to the company, the SureStrip mechanism is incorporated into the container lids, doing away with the need for cafés and other food-to-go business operators to use separate tamper-resistant sealing equipment.

As the containers are manufactured from rPET they look good on-shelf or in the chiller and give customers a better view of the food as they browse.

The leak-resistant and stackable containers are available in 250ml, 375ml, 600ml, 750ml and 1,000ml sizes with one lid size to fit all bases to cut down inventory requirements.

The tamper-resistant SureStrip system works well every time and helps to minimize costly wastage caused by customers rejecting containers, as is built into the lids.

Tri-Star Packaging managing director Kevin Curran said the tamper-resistant design is built right into the lid, and once the food is placed into one of the containers, the lid can be snapped on to secure it.

"When consumers want to open the package, all they have to do is pull off the strip that’s built into the edge of the lid, just as you would a shrink band, and open it right up," Curran said.

The new feature will secure freshness and does not require heat sealing and shrink banding equipment.
