Use Berlin Packaging's plastic ice cream tubs for more than just ice cream. Try using ice cream tubs with lids for food and non-food items such as fruit, olives, herbs, and spices. Choose from polypropylene or high-density polyethylene plastic containers, depending on your product needs.
What Styles of Ice Cream Tubs are Available?
Square, oblong, and round ice cream tubs are available. Some styles feature handles for easy carrying. When easy access is important, opt for a standard snap-lock lid. Pair containers with tamper-evident snap-lock lids to prioritize product safety, and customer trust. Tubs are available in a variety of capacities making it easy for you to provide customers with packaging options. Use stylish brand labeling to add color to clear, natural, or white tubs, depending on the model. Choose microwaveable and dishwasher safe options for a sustainable packaging option that encourages customers to re-use containers. When considering tubs, look for styles that nest to make for easy stacking of bulk product.
Do I Need High-density Polyethylene or Polypropylene Tubs?
High-density polyethylene plastic (HDPE) and polypropylene (PP) plastic are both food grade tubs. Both offer lightweight, flexible, and durable packaging, and can handle rough treatment when in transit, big considerations for reducing shipping costs. Additionally, HDPE and PP plastics are recyclable, economical, and resistant to moisture and corrosion.
If you are packaging dry storage products such as rice or pet food, butter tubs that need refrigeration, or products that require freezing such as ice-cream, you should consider using HDPE packaging. Its resistance to cracking is important for products that require freezing but do not need to be packaged at over 180 degrees Fahrenheit or with a hermetic seal. PP tubs offer increased flexibility, making them a good choice for snap lock containers with lids. They are also useful for storing many household cleaners and acid concentrates. PP containers are suitable when heat and chemical resistance properties are necessary.
