Placon Introduces New Line of Bakery Containers Made with EcoStar Food Grade RPET

May 9, 2011

MADISON , WI (May 9, 2011) In response to a growing demand for food-grade plastic containers made with recycled material, Placon Corporation of Madison, WI now offers Dimensions™ Bakery, a complete line of bakery containers with up to 100% post-consumer recycled content and exceptional clarity.

The crystal clear EcoStar food-grade Recycled PET in the Dimensions line provides retailers with a way to address environmental concerns without sacrificing packaging integrity, freshness or appearance. Every Dimensions Bakery container provides superior clarity through the top and sides of packaging to promote in-store sales.

Dimensions Bakery containers extend shelf life and ensure freshness thanks to their PET material and secure perimeter snap, which keeps the package closed and the product safe from store to home. Once there, easy-open tabs make the packaging consumer-friendly. Recessed flat lids keep the containers nestled safely together when stacked to prevent movement and scratching during shipping.

“Dimensions Bakery takes Placon’s expertise in food-grade RPET and extends it to bakery, where there’s a premium on protecting fragile contents, keeping them fresh, and showing their appetite appeal,” says Jeff Lucash, Placon National Sales Manager.

The Dimensions Bakery line includes hinged bakery containers with angled cavities to display cookies, brownies and other baked goods, 10-count cookie trays with separate slots, 29-ounce hinged bakery containers for bulk packaging, 4-count and 6-count muffin containers with center supports to keep muffins from being crushed during shipping or if stacked, and a 12-count mini muffin container, also with center support.
