Anchor Packaging has announced new products to its line of Culinary Squares™ bases and lids in an effort to offer increased value and controlled costs to operators.
Featuring the same inside food space as a 9” x 9” foam clamshell, Anchor’s Culinary Squares™ product line aims to offer an affordable upgrade from foam. The materials are both durable and cut-resistant, while still providing food visibility through the clear lids. At a time when food prices are on the rise, Anchor Packaging says this line was designed to maximize performance and minimize packaging cost.
A new, deeper dome joins the existing single and 3-compartment, vented lids made with clear polypropylene (PP) with integral Clear Guard™ anti-fog technology, according to a press release. Its matching 8.5 inch square, black PP bases, are available in single and 3-compartment designs, and fit with all three lids designed with secure, leak-resistant closures to preserve the food presentation and avoid messy spills. These packages are designed to withstand temperatures to 230°F in warming units, under heat lamps, or in the microwave.
Made with a natural mineral additive, the containers reduce the use of petroleum-based resin by 40%, the company says. Both bases and lids are dishwasher safe, providing consumers with reusability and recyclability.
