Alpha Packaging: Large PET packers for nutritional powders
Alpha Packaging has expanded its line of indented large PET packers for nutritional powders to include three new sizes: the 3785cc (1-gallon), 6250cc, and a 1500cc packer--a lightweight version of a size already made by Alpha.
The six sizes now available are manufactured using a single-stage blow molding process. Standard colors are clear, white, cobalt blue, dark green, light amber and dark amber. Bottles are available with low minimums for standard colors; custom colors require a minimum of 10,000 pieces with a $500 purge charge, or Alpha will waive the purge charge for orders of 50,000 pieces or more.
Alpha’s 1500cc, 2000cc, 2500cc, 3000cc and 3785cc sizes all feature a 110mm continuous thread neck; the 6250cc packer has a 120mm neck. The indented label panel style protects labels from scuffing during shipping and at retail, and the generous neck widths allow consumers to use large scoops. Only the 1500cc size is available in multiple gram weights. The new 98.5-gram 1500cc packer will become Alpha’s standard weight for this size, and the 141-gram option will be available for companies seeking a heavier weight.
