What is the next packaging trend for guest amenities? Don Hopta, marketing manager at Klocke of America Inc., believes the time has come for custom-molded form/fill/seal thermoformed containers.These packages are thermoformed chambers that are filled and then sealed with a backing foil bearing a peel-open flap.
Hopta says these single-use packages run on form/fill/seal lines and can be designed to duplicate the colors, shape, and contour of a product’s retail package, thereby extending brand equity.
Used in the right situations, these miniature containers may provide an economical alternative to bottles and tubes. The foil seal on the back panel is not only a closure, but also provides space for ingredient statements and for promoting hotel services to offset package costs.
