A new innovation, the TE-cap is a combination of a lightweight paper pot and a deep-freeze grade polypropylene lid. The patented lid design provides a tamper evident seal delivering product security, with easy opening and re-closure for consumer convenience.
Historically tamper features were usually limited to injection moulded pots. This innovative lid means that now even paper containers can be made Tamper Evident. The packaging features an injection moulded break-off tab and skirt which eliminates the need for foil or membrane sealing and provides instant evidence of any interference. This is a convenient way to assure the consumer that package contents have not been tampered with prior to purchase.
The paper container provides good insulation, excellent print quality and is perfectly suited for deep freezing. The paperboard is produced from renewable resources and the lid is suitable for onward recycling.
Gerard Connolly, Sales and Marketing Manager at IPS, explains:
- Brand owners are looking to protect their most valuable asset - their brand. The TE-cap is the perfect packaging solution; it eliminates the need for heat sealing, improves line efficiencies, optimizes package safety and protects their brand.
We are confident that the TE-cap will make an immediate impact in the frozen dairy sector. It offers effective decorative options for visual impact and maintains product freshness, making it ideal for other markets including chilled foods and ready to eat products.
