October 10, 2017
Better packaging means a better experience with Placon’s latest addition to GoCubes stock food packaging line

Placon, a leading North American plastic packaging designer and manufacturer, launched a new product as part of its popular Fresh n’ Clear GoCubes™ stock food packaging line. The new 4-compartment, 24-ounce base, joins the already established product line, which launched in 2015, bringing style, versatility, and sustainability to a classic square container.

Meeting the growing demand for compartmental packaging, the new GoCube base offers even more merchandising opportunities for convenient, grab-and-go snacking options. According to The Hartman Group’s, The Future of Snacking 2016 Report, 91% of consumers snack multiple times throughout the day and view snacking is essential to daily nutrition. Packaging with multiple compartments ensures ingredients are safely kept separate with consistent portion sizing, separating and highlighting specific ingredients while keeping food looking better and tasting fresher for longer.

Available now in six ultra-sleek base sizes from 12 to 36 ounces, GoCubes work with a one-size fits all recycled PET lid option with secure seals, easy open tabs, and crystal clear anti-fog technology. Three insert trays can be used to mix and match are also available. Made with EcoStar® recycled PET material from curbside plastic bottles, GoCubes are reusable and recyclable.
