Single portion container in CPET for microwave and oven: D65PB

In Compac, we have increased our range of containers in white CPET (crystallized polyethylene terephthalate) with a new product:

D65PB – External size: 120 x 136 x 65 mm – Capacity: 750 ml

Our  Containers in CPET are heat-sealable and can be used to pack any kind of food.

 

Why have we chosen to produce single portion containers?

About 1.6 billion tons of food is wasted every year in the world (Fao data), a third of global food production. We must add to this number the additional problems of environmental impact: wasting food means as well wasting the resources used to produce it: energy, water and land.

For this reason, the UN has included among the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda “Objective 12 – Target 12.3” which provides to “halve global food waste per capita by retail and consumption by 2030, as well as to reduce food losses along the production and supply chain”.

The use of single portion containers can be one of the strategies and ways to prevent food waste.

For people who live on their own or in small families, one of the good practices for a daily life with a reduced waste production is to buy just the food that they are sure to eat. You can benefit from single portion containers, avoiding throwing in the trash expired food that it has not been eaten in time.

Furthermore, the need of containers with a dimension who can allow the flexibility in portioning for take away and delivery is increasing, thus avoiding food waste.

 

Containers in CPET: features and applications

Containers in CPET (crystallized polyethylene terephthalate) are heat-sealable and forms the COMPAC’s system, combined with the COMPAC’s heat-sealer machine and film reels.

  • They are available in white and black color.
  • They are suitable for pasteurization.
  • They are safe from breakage during handling and transport thanks to their high elasticity and sturdiness (given by the ribs on the sidewalls).
