News from Tokyo Pack: World’s first recloseable blister pack

Developed by Blisspack Co. Ltd., this blister pack involves a proprietary easy-cut technology using special knives to create a small tear strip in the lidding material near the top of the container. Once this strip has been torn, the package contents can be dispensed. Then, thanks to the intricate yet user-friendly design of the container, the top of the package can be folded so tightly that no product can escape.
