Inline Plastics Corp., Shelton, CT, announces the introduction their improved one piece round clamshell bowls, the enhanced version of the company’s breakthrough Safe-T-Fresh line of products. 

The round bowls, available in sizes ranging from 8 oz. to 80 oz., are also offered with either flat or dome lid sizes to best match your specific food application. The bowls have been enhanced with easier to close, easier to open lids, and attractive new partial ribs that provide improved stacking strength.  These new bowls, with Safe-T-Gard tamper resistant technology, are ideal for retailers such as supermarkets, convenience stores, warehouse clubs and the processors who supply these retailers. 

Typical applications for these bowls include fresh-cut fruits and vegetables, a wide range of bakery and deli items, and a variety of snack goods. The new upscale design is stackable and promotes attractive merchandising displays that highlight the quality of its contents. The exclusive 360° perimeter seal provides high leak resistance, increased product shelf life and better protection of its contents. 

All Safe-T-Fresh containers incorporate a tamper-resistant locking mechanism and an exclusive patented tamper evident tear-strip hinge that the consumer removes to gain access to the contents of the container. This innovative, industry first design eliminates the need for shrink-bands or wrap-around labels to prevent product tampering, as well as protecting the product from bruising or breaking better than flexible packaging. 

Retailers also benefit by reducing their SKU’s with only one item to inventory with the Safe-T-Fresh one piece clamshell container, as opposed to two-piece containers that require a bowl, a lid, and a shrink band.

Along with the entire Safe-T-Fresh line, the new containers continue to be manufactured from low carbon footprint, crystal clear, 100% recyclable PET. This benefits retailers and processors by providing containers to their customers who desire environmentally responsible packaging.
