EasyPak offers a variety of thermoformed plastic packaging options. Clamshell containers, for example, are popular with food manufacturers because of their ability to make products completely visible to prospective buyers while minimizing theft and damage.
EasyPak, founded in 2004, is a leading provider of thermoformed packaging solutions for a wide range of markets and applications. We stock over 350 shapes and sizes of thermoformed food containers for herbs, tender leaf food products, fresh produce, deli and snack products, meat, baked goods, candy and desserts, and many other specialty food products.
We consistently produce high-quality packaging with a quick turnaround, but are flexible enough to adjust production when necessary to meet just-in-time customer demands. We also specialize in designing custom solutions that meet the unique needs of customers.
EasyPak is ISO 9001:2015 registered; maintains SQF “Safe Quality Food” Plant Certification and SCS Global Services Certification; and our facilities consistently receive “A” ratings from BRC Global Standards, the most stringent food safety certification available in our industry.
What is Thermoforming?
Thermoforming is the process of heating a sheet of thermoplastic material and using vacuum and/or pressure to form it into a 3-D shape with a mold. As it cools, it is trimmed to the proper size for the end product.
A clamshell is a clear, rigid, one-piece container that consists of two bowl-shaped halves joined by a hinge that allows it to open and close (like a clamshell you might find at the beach). Some thermoformed plastic clamshell containers have a single hinge, while others feature a multi-hinged design.
Most clamshell packaging is sealed with self-locking tabs, button snaps, or a friction fit. When heat-sealed, the containers are leak-resistant and tamper-resistant, and your products will be protected from damage and contamination. Also, with the clamshell package’s resealing capabilities, food can be preserved for a long time after opening.
EasyPak provides thermoformed product design, engineering, manufacturing, mold prototyping, production tooling, and labeling, and will develop other services as needed to solve your packaging problems and simplify your operations.
Consumers today want to buy products from brands that use eco-friendly packaging materials. Sustainability is good for the planet and is ingrained in all aspects of our business at EasyPak.
We use recycled content as a main ingredient in our packaging. PET (polyethylene terephthalate) is strong, safe, transparent, and versatile. It is also lightweight and 100% recyclable. The advantage of PET is that it does not transfer chemicals to the products it comes in contact with, so it is ideal for food products.
