EasyPak is known for our expertise in creating tailor-made candy trays and one-of-a-kind confectionery packaging. If this is your market, there are several great reasons to use thermoformed plastic packaging.
Since 2004, EasyPak has grown to become one of North America’s leading resources for innovative solutions in thermoformed packaging for the food industry. In 2018 and 2019, we joined forces with three other successful plastic thermoforming companies – Tray-Pak, Nuconic Packaging and James L. Villa, Inc.
Now operating together under the EasyPak name, we are capable of a wide range of technical and manufacturing capabilities across a national footprint, with facilities to meet your needs in Leominster, MA; Kalamazoo, MI; Reading, PA; Vernon, CA; and Oldsmar, FL.
Our speed to market, breadth of materials, prototype and engineering technology, and production versatility all contribute to making EasyPak the most reliable choice for your confectionery tray needs.
Why Choose Thermoformed Confectionery Packaging?
Thermoforming is a process that uses heat, vacuum and pressure to form thin-gauge plastic sheets into three-dimensional shapes determined by a mold. Once cooled, they are trimmed and finished to increase their usability. The thermoforming process allows for easy customization of product packaging.
Thermoformed packaging is available in a wide range of shapes and sizes, including rectangular, round, square, octagonal, clamshell, compartmented, fluted, etc. It provides space for important information about the product, such as instructions, ingredients, and even nutrition information.
At EasyPak, we work closely with confectioners to create individual packaging solutions that display products in creative ways to catch the consumer’s eye at the point of purchase.
Quick Turnaround Times
Thermoformed package development time is shorter from discovery, to design and engineering, to production than other packaging options, a major consideration when time-to-market is important. Controlling the complete process under one roof enables us to respond to customers’ urgent demands and meet the tightest of deadlines.
High-quality thermoformed packaging is very cost-effective, making it a smart option for customers small and large. On average, thermoformed packaging costs about 10% to 15% less than plastic injection molded packaging.
Packaging performance depends on design and function, and each application has an optimal food-grade material choice. EasyPak engineers will help you design the optimal package for your application and choose the right material, from traditional plastic polymers to new eco-friendly alternatives such as FDA PCR-APET (post-consumer recycled APET).
The majority of consumers today prefer to purchase products from brands that use environmentally friendly packaging materials. Thermoforming is highly sustainable in materials and production. At EasyPak, we use recycled content as a main ingredient in our containers, trays and other thermoformed packages. 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 the ideal solution for food products.
