Anchor Packaging, Inc., St. Louis, announced a new line of tamper-evident food containers, jointly developed over a 2-year period with the input of actual consumers.

The SAFE PINCH is virtually leak-proof, eliminates the sharp edges associated with many existing tamper-evident containers and does not leave the user with a plastic strip or tab to dispose of.

The intuitive “PINCH” feature, boldly embossed on the hinge of the container, sends a clear message on how to open the SAFE PINCH package. The audible sound and feel of the breaking hinge as its pinched lets the consumer know it’s working. Visible, wide separation of the opened hinge makes it easy for store personnel or consumers to identify tampered product. SAFE PINCH also features easy-to-open and easy-to-reclose features.

SAFE PINCH containers are ideal for refrigerated fresh food applications, such as salads, cut fruit and sandwiches. Large, clear windows with minimal ribbing offer maximum food visibility, and the secure stackable design creates an eye-catching display. Plus, this package is made with FDA-approved, post-consumer recycled PETE, and is reusable and recyclable curbside.
