Placon: Rotisserie chicken container
Placon has redesigned its patented, 2-piece HomeFresh Rotisserie Chicken Container to reduce its overall use of petroleum-based resins--without sacrificing the container’s strong visual appeal and structural integrity.
The rotisserie chicken packaging continues to provide an attractive design and reliable, tight-fitting polypropylene lid and base. The packaging has been reengineered to utilize a calcium carbonate (CaCO3) filler in the container’s base. An inorganic mineral filler, calcium carbonate is commonly used in polypropylene food packaging containers due to its numerous beneficial attributes.
Besides replacing the use of petroleum-based, virgin material, the chemically inert, food-safe filler has led to enhancements in the product’s mechanical properties.
