A robust generic smoothwall container for the food industry, which the manufacturer says is “lightweight compared with current industry standard designs”, has been launched by i2r Packaging Solutions in Telford in the UK.
The aluminium trays use a thinner gauge aluminium, and have cut-away corners, meaning packers can potentially use a smaller outer sleeve.
Jon West, i2r’s commercial development director, says: “Working in partnership with food manufacturers and retailers, we were aware we needed to maintain a ‘must fit’ principle to the top tray dimensions so that no process, transit or on-shelf changes are required. We’ve managed to retain this while altering the tray’s sides and corners. In addition the cut-away corners provide added strength.”
