Missouri-based Anchor Packaging has unveiled ‘Wave' series, a productline of containers marked with a reduction of petroleum-based materials.
Available in 16, 24, and 32oz sizes, the containers are being marketed under the company's MicroRaves trademark.
Natural mineral additive in the products is said to cut the use of petroleum-based resin by 40%.
The Wave series 9" x 6" containers are durable and cut-resistant, and feature smooth sides, spoon-able inside surface, and a shiny black outside.
Three different leak-resistant lids fit the Wave polypropylene base. The dome lids of polypropylene and recycled polyethylene terephtalate (rPET) variants flaunt rib-free panels for a transparent view of the contents.
The vented, polypropylene dome lids are characterized with anti-fog technology that comes in way of condensation or fogging, a feature expected to prevent takeout order errors for foodservice operators. This also throws open hot-case merchandising opportunities for retailers.
On the other hand, rPET flat and dome lids come with cold anti-fog technology and provide an optimal food visibility when coupled with microwavable bases.
The bases and the lids, all of them dishwasher safe, can withstand temperature of 230°F in warming units under heat lamps or microwave. They can be recycled curbside.
