Clear Clamshell Food Containers
When it comes to selecting the right thermoformed plastic food containers for your products, you have many options. Whether you are considering clear clamshell packaging or a custom-designed solution, EasyPak can help.
EasyPak, founded in 2004, is a leading provider of thermoformed packaging solutions for a wide range of global industries and applications. In 2018, EasyPak joined forces with two other successful plastic thermoforming companies: Tray-Pak of Reading, PA and Nuconic Packaging of Vernon, CA. In 2019, a fourth business was acquired: James L. Villa, Inc. of Oldsmar, FL.
The four companies now operate under the EasyPak name and provide customers with nearly 70 years of combined experience and extensive knowledge in the packaging industry, from diverse single-layer containers to more complex multi-later-material MAP containers. We are also able to offer a wide spectrum of technical and manufacturing capabilities across a national footprint.
What Type of Packaging Do You Need?
Thermoplastic food packaging is typically broken down into the following styles:
- Clamshell—This plastic packaging design utilizes hinge and press-down features and can be created in stock or custom sizes. EasyPak offers round, square, rectangular, wedge and custom-shaped clamshell containers. These sturdy containers are unbreakable, lightweight, transparent, and resealable – designed for food safety and the protection of your products.
- Tray—Thermoformed tray designs can be used for packaging that requires a customized shape. EasyPak’s trays will protect and display packages of candies, cookies or crackers, frozen dinners, and large deli platters. They are capable of holding many different shapes of gourmet chocolates. EasyPak also offers a complete line of post-consumer recycled APET meat trays designed to enhance the display of freshly packed meats. Using our proprietary, patent-pending honeycomb like structure, our trays can capture and hold juices and liquids even when inverted. They are the perfect substitute for foam trays.
- Two-piece—This type of thermoformed plastic packaging is commonly used for storing and displaying food. These EasyPak containers with either inside recessed lids or outside lids are easily stackable for maximum utilization of shelf space. The two-piece packaging also provides excellent tamper-resistance while still being easy for the consumer to open. They are optimal for showcasing your deli products, salads, cakes and other desserts, and grab-and-go items.
Whether the food packaging you choose is a stock or custom design, it must meet stringent sanitation requirements. EasyPak facilities are ISO 9001:2015 registered; maintain SQF “Safe Quality Food” Plant Certification and SCS Global Services Certification; and consistently receive “A” ratings from BRC Global Standards, the most stringent food safety certification available in our industry.
