Modified atmosphere packaging technology allows us to preserve foods longer than ever before, helping you extend your market and lessening the problem of food waste. If you need thermoform trays, tubs or lids for MAP packaging, Indepak has the experience necessary to create precisely what you need.
The Indepak Difference
Modified atmosphere packaging is unique, and your trays and tubs need to be designed specifically for the MAP process. Our highly controlled process allows us to achieve even material distribution throughout the thermoformed part. This is crucial for the performance of the barrier films that will be sealed in place at the end of the process.
With a less experienced packaging supplier, you may end up with improperly designed trays, tubs, lids and parts. For instance, we’ve seen packaging that had areas where the plastic was too thin, which can affect the properties of the barrier film. It’s crucial that you purchase packaging from a supplier that truly understands the unique nature of MAP packaging.
At Indepak, we’ve been designing packaging for the specialty foods industry for more than 50 years, and have extensive experience with modified atmosphere packaging. While we do not supply barrier films, we can work with your lidding film supplier to ensure material compatibility. Our goal is to always provide you with a total solution for your packaging needs.
What We Can Create
Through the years, we’ve created packaging for a wide range of industries, including specialty foods, medical & pharmaceutical, electronics, agricultural, industrial and, of course, many retailers.
We can design any type of custom tray you might need. Whether you need a simple tray to hold steak or hamburger or need a tray with several custom cavities to hold multiple food items, we can design whatever you might need.
Tubs & Lids
Whether you need custom tubs for yogurt or butter or something else entirely, we can design any size or shape of tub you might need. If you need a custom lid to fit in place over the tub and barrier film, we can design that, as well.
Not everything we design is a package. If you need custom thermoformed parts, we can design just what you need.
In addition to MAP packaging, we can design clamshells and any type of blister packaging, including face seal blisters, trap blisters and more.
Materials & Sustainability
Our facility includes multiple lines of high-speed thermoforming equipment allowing us to process a wide range of rigid thermoform plastic materials. When it comes to sustainability, virtually all of the materials we use are recyclable. We also can design packaging using plastic with recycled content or using starch-based bio materials.
We are experts with the use of PET, PETG, HDPE, PP and more, all of which are FDA-approved for food contact. Our design team will assess your packaging needs and determine which types of plastics are best suited to your needs and your budget.
