Private Label Foods, Inc. had been using a salad dressing bottle with poor weight distribution, a characteristic of old-technology manufacturing that resulted in crushed bottles and paneled shoulders. The consequence was a 25-percent filling line deficiency.

For the Rochester, NY-based company, TricorBraun sourced a more robust container with even wall distribution that was made on state-of-the-art equipment. The new 16-ounce, clear PET banjo bottle increased line efficiency and enhanced the company’s profit margin.

Once the bottle had been sourced, TricorBraun supplied a polypropylene, continuous-thread, 38-490 closure that was both two grams lighter and less costly.
