Lake Forest, Illinois-based Pactiv Evergreen has launched Tamper Evident Fry Cartons to meet the evolving needs of today’s foodservice operators.
With the rise in takeout and delivery, the cartons were designed with portability, safety and security in mind. The cartons’ design features a tamper evident latch that must be torn to access the contents inside. Both the foodservice operator and consumer will be able to see if a carton has been tampered with to increase food safety and consumer confidence. The latch keeps food safely secure during transport, preventing unwanted spills.
The Fry Cartons’ cross-ventilation system keeps food hot during transport. Foodservice establishments can present grab-and-go food under a display with these heat lamp safe cartons. Printable in up to six colors, foodservice operators can showcase their brand and message on the cartons. Order minimums apply for custom prints.
“With the snack daypart on the rise, we recognized the need for packaging that provides an excellent off-premise dining experience. With our new Fry Cartons, operators can display hot food ready for grab-and-go consumption. The cartons’ unique shape, size and reclosable lid makes them great for snacking on the go,” said Erik Hoar, senior director of sales for Pactiv Evergreen’s Foodservice business unit. “Serving hot and crispy foods to go has never been easier.”
Pactiv Evergreen’s Tamper Evident Fry Cartons are made in the U.S. from Pactiv Evergreen’s Sentinel SBS Paperboard and meets the sustainable forestry initiative certified sourcing standard. SFI Fiber Sourcing mandates proactive promotion of logger education and training, best management practices, identification and protection of important habitat elements for wildlife and prompt reforestation of harvested sites. The Fry Cartons are PFAS free and meet ASTM D6868 for commercial compostability in actively managed municipal or industrial facilities.
“From paperboard to final package, Pactiv Evergreen brings sustainability into focus throughout every step of the Carton’s production. This fully integrated innovation represents our ability to be a holistic partner through streamlined manufacturing, supply chain, and product development,” said Lynn Dyer, chief sustainability and public affairs officer of Pactiv Evergreen. “It’s been exciting to see Pactiv Evergreen’s people work together to bring this product to market.”
