Sonoco Alloyd, part of Sonoco Display and Packaging, a unit of global packaging company Sonoco, has developed an innovative new package that allows easy dispensing of product and convenient storage of unused portions. The patent-pending packaging design is the first of its kind to combine thermoformed technology with a sliding lid.

The DivvyPack dispensable packaging system allows careful, singular “divvying” of product for multi-count packages. The lid slides away without opening completely, making it easy to dispense a single product from a multi-product package.

Interlocking channels along the sides of the sliding lid and tray allow for easy, one-handed opening and reclosing of the package, with an audible snap when locking closed. The package combines easy-open technology with tamper evidence, reassuring customers that their product is protected.

The format is ideal for not only standard multiple-quantity packaging, but also special use cases like club store packaging and gift-with-purchase promotions. The flat lid, clear packaging, and customizable shape and size provide a variety of marketing options.

“Our newest packaging innovation is the result of intense insight gathering, developmental ideation and market interaction so we can provide our customers with a differentiated competitive advantage that will better their brands,” says Kim Goyke, marketing specialist, Sonoco Alloyd. “This purpose-driven packaging meets the unique needs of customers in a wide variety of markets.”

The DivvyPack package will be demonstrated at the upcoming Pack Expo 2015 trade show in Las Vegas, Sept. 28-30, at Booth 4022. Sonoco Alloyd is a leading manufacturer and award-winning designer of high-visibility packaging and blister packaging machines for the retail and medical markets.
