Berlin Packaging offers numerous plastic food containers at wholesale prices that can be used for both food and nonfood purposes, such as for soaps, detergents, or adhesives. Neutral plastic colors help branding stand out on shelves. Plastic tubs are a convenient packaging solution for both fill-in-store and prepackaged products. Optional plastic tamper-evident containers provide peace of mind that products have not been contaminated.

Are Plastic Tubs with Lids Suitable for Hot-Fill or Frozen Foods?

Food-grade tubs come in a variety of plastics with different thermal tolerances. For products that require freezing, such as ice cream, frozen yogurt, berries, fish fillets, or meat patties, opt for freezer-suitable containers. If the product involves hot-fill or reheated from frozen in the packaging, such as ready-to-eat meals, look for tubs with a wide thermal tolerance and microwave suitability. Tubs are also fitting for foods that won't be exposed to temperature extremes during storage, such as popcorn, dips, salsas, butter, ready-made icing, and deli containers that hold items like olives, stuffed peppers, and shaved meats.

Types of Wholesale Plastic Food Containers with Lids

Tubs come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. Select from round, oblong, or square bucket styles with numerous heights and capacities. Review those with handles for ease of transportation. Natural or clear transparent plastic tub food packaging allows quick viewing of products. If this isn't necessary, white plastic tubs may be preferred. High-density polyethylene or HDPE plastics are suitable for products that require freezing, steam sanitizing, or hot-fill below 180 degrees Celsius. Polypropylene or PP plastic is highly durable and chemical and heat resistant, allowing for hot-fill processes. Lids are either hinged or designed to fit snap-lock containers, with tamper-evident features optional. Hinged lids are suitable for bulk dry foods, pet foods, or powdered cleaning products such as laundry detergent. Lids may be sold separately for enhanced branding customization. Choose recyclable wholesale plastic food containers and lids for a cost-effective, sustainable packaging solution.
