Anchor Packaging Inc. is introducing a 16-oz. polypropylene container and lid designed to maximize performance and minimize cost. Food looks fresh and appealing in this upscale alternative to foam and paper packages, according to Anchor. Its size fits market trends for smaller portion sizes and the increased demand for finger foods and snacks. The container works well for hot foods held under heat lamps, chilled ready-to-heat in the microwave items as well as assorted cold food applications.
The new M616 from Anchor offers a table-ready presentation. Made with renewable mineral additives that reduce the use of petroleum-based polypropylene resin up to 40 percent, this durable black base is resistant to grease and oils and withstands temperatures up to 230 degrees.
Clear, anti-fog polypropylene lids keep food visible to avoid errors and increase impulse sales with a leak resistant closure to prevent messy spills, Anchor says. Lids stay securely in place during handling and transport and a single package for hot and cold foods reduces SKUs and inventory costs, the company adds.
Designed for operator efficiency to package a variety of entrees and side dishes, the M616 is also dishwasher safe for consumer convenience and is eligible to be recycled after multiple uses.
