Hartsville, South Carolina-based Novolex has introduced EcoCraft Fresh & Crispy clamshell containers, a new line of packaging designed to keep fried foods warm and crunchy.
The containers offer a unique system for high-performance ventilation, the company says. They are constructed with Eco-Flute micro-flute corrugation for superior rigidity and crush strength to maintain food integrity during transport and delivery.
"EcoCraft Fresh & Crispy containers solve a problem that has long troubled restaurants and caterers: how to keep fried foods warm and crispy until they're delivered," says Adrianne Tipton, senior vice president of innovation at Novolex. "These containers even keep french fries crispy, warm and tasty. That's a real innovation in food delivery."
EcoCraft Fresh & Crispy containers are designed for restaurants, convenience stores, supermarkets, caterers and delivery services. The containers, which feature a secure latch lock to keep them closed during deliveries, come in two different sizes: 5.5 x 5 x 2.88 inches and 6.28 x 5 x 2.25 inches. Custom print is available.
The container's middle layer uses 100% post-consumer recycled content, providing a sturdy, lightweight package. The whole container is made with a minimum of 33% post-consumer recycled content.
