Barrier Packaging

For many products, exposure to air and moisture can cause them to degrade. Food items, in particular, are susceptible to oxidation and environmental contamination. Fresh and frozen foods, coffees, and snacks commonly use specially designed barrier packaging to seal in and preserve freshness until consumers are ready to enjoy them.

Bulk Bins

A bulk bin is a large corrugated fiberboard frame or half-slotted body, with one or two covers, that are frequently interlocked. Bulk bins are commonly used to house and sell consumables such as fruits or nuts by weight, or to consolidate smaller packages to reduce handling time. Because of their filled weight, they are often placed on a pallet for easy transportation.
