How to Define My Perfect Bowl

Choosing the right bowl for your product is vital to meeting the needs of your consumer. A multitude of factors come into play when determining the ideal bowl to satisfy the complex needs of a diverse customer base.

The major points you need to understand are the visuals (what you expect the product to look like), features, environmental conditions, storage, and the transportation needs of your product. Serving size, of course, can be a huge factor, like in the case of our OPS 3-3/4-inch, 6-ounce round smooth container, or when needing special functionality, like the 4-compartment, 32-ounce, clear 7 inch round tub. Then there are uses to take into consideration, like a round deli cup, a 14 ounce standard in most facilities.

How your product looks on the shelf is unique to each brand, the right packaging sets you apart from your competitors. When developing the best packaging for your specific brand, design choices such as color, shape, functionality, and materials are essential to creating the perfect bowl for your product.

Deli, Dips, Sauces, or Confections?


When choosing a bowl for your product, the first step is determining which container best fits your product’s needs. For example, if you sell salsa or hummus to your consumers, the 16 oz. clear 5.5″ round tubwould be a perfect fit to keep the product crisp and clean.

According to McKinsey & Company, after being surveyed, an average of 43 percent of consumers deemed recycling and understanding the effects it has on the environment as extremely necessary. Sustainability is a rapidly growing industry and providing that knowledge and understanding of the importance of recycled packaging is crucial to meet your consumer’s needs.
