Shelton, Connecticut-based Inline Plastics has released what it calls a "mini" container, aimed at consumers seeking smaller, single-serve food containers.

The company is expanding its Safe-T-Fresh SquareWare line with the addition of a Snackers line.

"As retailer and consumer needs change with modern lifestyles, Inline is poised to provide food packaging options that support these transformations," says Carrie Cline, Inline Plastics' senior product manager. "The launch of Snackers into the marketplace provides retailers with individual portion sized food packaging and delivers convenience to consumers with the added confidence that the food products will be fresh and secure."

The company says Snackers are compact, leak-resistant containers that are sized for small servings. They offer consumers the same tamper-resistant locking system as the rest of the Safe-T-Fresh line. The containers are 100% curbside recyclable and are available in four sizes, ranging from 2 oz. to 8 oz.
