The newest addition to its Fresh ’n Clear stock food container line, Placon’s Envisions thermoformed packaging places the focus on the food, boosting impulse purchases.

Restaurants and supermarket delis will find the attraction in Placon’s newest Envisions plastic food packaging trays and lids. The black and clear FDA approved food containers are made from Placon’s EcoStar post-consumer recycled (PCR), curbside-collected PET bottles and thermoforms which contain a minimum of 30%, up to 100%, PCR content.

The contemporary packaging creates instant shelf impact with a sleek lid and base geometry that has no protruding tabs for a smooth, clean look that makes food the focus. The smart lid design allows for easy opening and closing with a tight inside lid seal providing a nice snap closure for high leak resistance, and the flat surfaces can be custom-embossed. The sustainable containers are perfect for everything from culinary masterpieces to everyday Caesar salads, baked goods, sandwiches and wraps.

“Envisions is a recycled packaging line that is both elegant and functional,” says Jeff Lucash, Placon’s Director of Sales, Stock Products. “The deep bases feature a raised grid pattern that’s attractive, keeps foods from sliding around while allowing liquids to drain away from the food. The shallow bases have a high dome lid with a large angled window that lets customers see fresh food no matter how it’s displayed - whether stacked 3, 4 or 5 high, you get clear, unobstructed viewing.”
