“We closely collaborated with our customer, Allos Hof-Manufaktur, to customize a package based on our PermaSafe containers,” said
Sonoco incorporated several special touches into the container, including a barrel design that replicates tiny wooden slats and a special matte finish. In addition to being visually appealing, the barrel structure enhances rigidity and reduces the amount of material required. The matte label was custom-developed by Sonoco to impart a natural, paper-like feel, underscoring the natural appeal of the product.
The packaging is also safe and functional. The user-friendly lid is easy to open and resealable, and the die-cut aluminum membrane seals the packaging. "After sterilization, the spreads keep in the PermaSafe container for twelve months without refrigeration," said Rothschink. "This makes IML packaging a modern and consumer-friendly alternative to metal cans."
In the IML process, the polypropylene containers are manufactured and labeled in a single operation. Key advantages include the container's eye-catching appearance at the point of sale and the option of wrap-around labeling. IML is also beneficial in terms of recycling, because there is no need to separate materials.
