Benefits & options
Sonoco’s injection-moulded packaging is an efficient solution for demanding challenges.
Your product requires freshness and protection. Thanks to outstanding barrier properties and resealability, Sonoco’s plastic packaging offers an ideal, convenient and lightweight packaging solution for dairy products — and it looks great on the shelf.
Our plastic tubs are easy to open, even for special groups like children and the elderly. With a sealable membrane upon purchase, and a lid that snaps tight upon reclose, your customers can feel good about product storage and reuse.
You can feel good about product protection, too. Our revolutionary combination of in-mould labelling, sealing properties and injection moulding opens a range of possibilities for our customers’ product concepts and applications. Our durable packaging stands up to rigorous filling, shipping and shelf conditions in a range of temperatures.
In-Mould Labelling (IML)
Sonoco’s plastic consumer packaging is injection moulded using an in-mould labelling (IML) technique. This technique guarantees maximum freedom of design, showcasing your brand’s visual strategy while standing out on the shelf.
Our IML packaging offers:
- Shelf appeal
Access superior graphics and branding via a label that covers more of your packaging’s surface area
Tests have shown a dramatically reduced water vapor transmission rate (WVTR) compared to standard monolayer polypropylene packaging
The robust structure will survive the retort process
Choose a nestable design for supply chain optimization
IML packaging offers a high barrier delivered via a monolayer structure
Lightweight and easy to open, IML packaging is ideal for on-the-go consumers
In-mould labelling is available for all our plastic consumer packaging, with standing the rigorous filling and storing methods for pasteurised, heat-sterilised and frozen foods.
