Packaging manufacturer Plastic Ingenuity created food product packaging for a client that needed a simple locking mechanism in a two-piece design. By thermoforming PET plastic, PI was able to create custom packaging that was safe and suitable for containing food products without letting in contamination or spilling its contents.
As a product packaging manufacturer with experience combining simplicity and security, Plastic Ingenuity used PET plastic to create this deceptively secure food container.
Plastic Ingenuity created a low-cost, high-security design that would be appropriate for packaging and repackaging food without risking spills or contamination. PI determined that thermoforming plastic like PET would be the best solution. As a packaging manufacturer experienced with a wide variety of materials, PI recognizes the properties unique to PET that make it so appropriate for food packaging.
PET is highly moldable, making it popular for custom packaging. It is relatively low cost and highly recyclable, making bulk orders and frequent disposal both cost-effective and environmentally friendly. Properly thermoformed, this material also provides a perfectly clear window to the inside of a container, making food products highly visible and easy to inspect without opening the product packaging. In this case, the package was adorned with food imagery while retaining its clarity between images.
The package employs a simple locking mechanism that keeps its contents secure in this two-piece custom packaging design. This package’s unique locking mechanism allows the user to simply push down on the lid and twist to lock in place. Locked in that position, the container will not open unless the user twists the lid back.
