Off The Shelf: Clear plastic can for sardines

From Brivais Vilnis of Latvia comes a replacement for the metal tin: an injection-molded PP retortable container with barrier delivered via in-mold labels.

Interesting video… CPGs using aluminum cans, beware! The customer can see what they are getting. I have found, all too often, one un-named CPG doesn't pack their products like "sardines in a can" i.e. pretty loose and sometimes one very lonely sardine. However, at the tail end of the video, a point was made that 2 in-mold labels, one at the bottom and the other being a container wraparound, are applied that guarantees a "no gap in the oxygen barrier" giving the package a 2 year shelf life. How is it that 2 labels are doing this fine job of increasing the barrier properties?
