Spotted recently in a Jewel supermarket in Chicago was this 89-oz handled PET container for Tropicana Pure Premium. Especially notable is the closure, which features a hinged flip-top closure and a ring-pull opening component beneath the flip top. Graham Packaging produces the bottle, which sold for $7.09 at the Jewel store. PACKAGING WORLD is in the process of learning more about the innovative container, which is just now rolling out, so stay tuned.

I got one and decided to keep it, it's much to cool to toss in the bin! Way to go, Tropicana!
