Solution-Based Packaging that Greatly Impacts Consumer Lifestyles

June 26th, 2018 RSS feed icon

In the world of “to-go”, there are constant changes being made to food packaging, restaurant design, and overall operations in order to achieve a consumer-focused experience. Some changes aren’t always so complex, but convenient- and that’s a characteristic that Genpak lives by. Here are 3 modifications to our food packaging that greatly shapes the modern day consumer lifestyle, helping save time and money.

Close-off food packaging3 compartment closed off food container

Compartmented containers are always convenient for side portioned food items, which require separating. Years ago, we at Genpak launched our first close-off container with the 203CO, and have since translated that feature over to our microwave-safe and APET products. Our close-off solution has addressed food migration concerns by adding compartments in the base of a container and the lid. We are capable of promoting zero food migration with durable packaging that reigns superior against our competitors.

Stackable feature

There is nothing worse than carrying multiple containers, only to have them collapse after taking a few steps or when placing them in the car. With the emergence of optional take-out family meals that can be enjoyed at home, work, or school, Genpak’s stackable feature helps consumer meals go the extra mile. We have engineered our stackable containers in such way that will secure multiple containers in place, for portability and carrying with ease.

Vented-Lid and Anti-Fog

A8801 & AS8802 – stackable, lightweight, and easy to carry

Perhaps everyone loves food right off the grill, and it’s even better when enjoyed anywhere, everywhere, and at any time. We’ve caught the drift with our vented-lid and anti-fog feature, which is found in our new black and clear ProView container, which reduces condensation for a clear view. Everyone wants to see their food, especially when it’s fresh off the grill. So, this feature makes it even more convenient for both the operator and the consumer by providing food authenticity and order accuracy.

Genpak products are still in the mix as you can spot our sustainable packaging across several establishments. Our products offer market flexibility as a powerhouse to consumer needs. Genpak meets this demand with reputable innovations like ProView, Smart Set Pro, Clear Hinged Foodservice Containers, and Oven Ready Food & Bakery Trays to propel foodservice industry growth.

Stay locked in for the next line up of features that define convenience for today’s consumer lifestyle.

Knowing Your Plastics: Recycling Symbols No. 1 to 7

May 8th, 2018 RSS feed icon

plastic resin identification codes

Have you ever wondered what the number inside the arrowed triangle means at the bottom of a plastic product? That logo printed on your plastic is known as a Resin Identification Code or RIC, which a set of symbols used to identify the type of resin from which a plastic product is made. Created by The Society of the Plastics, the system was introduced to U.S. recycling facilities in the late 1980s as a method of reprocessing plastics for further use and manufacturing. Today, the resin code system has become a useful tool for consumers after an increased public awareness of recycling.

What is Resin?

Before plastic is transformed into a product, it starts out in the form of tiny pellets known as resin. Resin is the base of the manufacturing process and have various properties. The pellets undergo a molding method where the plastic is transformed; but the way a product is manufactured depends on the type of resin used. For example, the forming process from P.E.T. resin will be different from the forming process of polystyrene resin, which is why the RIC system is important.

Do Genpak products contain BPA (Bisphenol-A)?

BPA is not used either directly or indirectly with any Genpak products include polystyrene or foamed polystyrene products.

 

Genpak products can be broken down and reformed into more products.

Here are our recyclable plastics, which are safe and offer various features and benefits.

 

#1 PETE - Polyethylene Terepthalate

Polyethylene Terepthalate

stacked clear food containers

P.E.T. plastic products are the most common type of curb-side recyclable plastic. Genpak’s containers made of this material also contain up to 30% post-consumer recycled content, in our conservational efforts to eliminate waste. Genpak’s P.E.T. products include Clear Hinged Deli Containers, Clear Hinged Food Containers, Oven Ready Bakery and Food Containers, Hinged Bakery Containers, Supermarket Containers, Serving Bowls, Clear Cups as well as most of our clear Foodservice Lids.

 

#5 PP - Polypropylene

Polypropylene

Another common, curb-side recycled plastic is polypropylene. This type of material is commonly used to produce microwave safe products and great for carrying heavy meals. At Genpak, we produce our Smart Set Pro, Harvest Pro and our new ProView products from polypropylene, which are microwavable and dishwasher-safe for convenience.

#6 PS - Polystyrene

Polystyrene

Polystyrene is a common type of food packaging material with the #6 plastic identification symbol. It has been safely used for nearly 50 years.
