Rectangular Deli Containers
When it comes to selecting the right thermoformed product packaging for your products, you have many options. EasyPak’s rectangular deli containers are functional, and will enhance the look and freshness of your food and inspire impulse buys.
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 and Nuconic Packaging. In 2019, a fourth business was acquired, James L. Villa, Inc., expanding the business into the Southeast.
Now operating together under the EasyPak name, we provide expertise in everything from diverse one-piece and two-piece designs, to leak-resistant and vented tamper-evident packaging, to complex multi-layer-material MAP containers. We offer a wide spectrum of technical and manufacturing capabilities across a national footprint, with facilities in Leominster, MA, Kalamazoo, MI, Reading, PA, Vernon, CA and Oldsmar, FL.
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 also specialize in designing custom solutions to meet the specific needs of customers.
Benefits of Thermoformed Food Packaging
Thermoforming is a technique that uses heat, vacuum and pressure to form thin plastic sheets into three-dimensional shapes determined by a mold. Once cooled, they are trimmed and finished to increase their usability. This process provides the ability to obtain molds that precisely fit your products, reducing packaging waste and increasing product functionality.
Design Options: Thermoformed packaging is available in a wide range of shapes and sizes, including rectangular, round, square, octagonal, clamshell, compartmented, fluted, etc. With an endless supply of options for incorporating branding into your packaging, the product will stand out to consumers when sitting on a retail shelf.
As you evaluate container shapes, consider that square and rectangular deli containers will take up less space on the store shelf and in your customer’s refrigerator, while round containers minimize wasted space inside the container and may be able to hold more product.
Thermoformed packaging also provides space for important information about the product, such as instructions, ingredients, or even nutrition information.
Protection for Products: Thermoformed packaging is a durable, resilient, and tamper-resistant option that protects the food inside against contamination. It offers protection not only during shipping and transportation, but also provides numerous sealing options that can extend the shelf life of the products.
Cost-effective: Thermoforming results in high-quality packaging that is very cost-effective, making it a smart option for customers small and large. On average, the packaging costs about 10% to 15% less than plastic packaging created via injection molding. Tooling costs are lower and product development time is shorter, a chief consideration when time-to-market is important.
Sustainability: 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.
At EasyPak, we have the production capabilities to service the entire spectrum of customers, from small to very large, whether you need rectangular, round or square deli containers, or want a unique custom solution.
