While every industry has its own specific packaging needs, when it comes to food and pharmaceutical or medical products, special care is essential. After all, these are products that affect the health of people all over the world. At Indepak, we have been creating food and medical packaging for years and understand the special needs of these industries.

Medical Packaging

There are many different types of medical packaging. For instance, prescribed medications and over-the-counter medicines often are enclosed in single-dose blister packs. For liquid medications and tablets or pills that aren’t in single dose packs, a company might need plastic bottles with child-proof lids and seals.

In addition, there are many different types of medical kits that need to be placed in sealed medical packages. For instance, you might need sterile medical packaging to hold syringes and glass bottles of various medicines. All medical packaging must be as tamper-proof as possible to ensure that the medications and medical devices are safe and secure. We also must use materials that are cleared for use with medicines and medical devices, as not all types of thermoplastics are suitable for medical packaging.

At Indepak, we can produce low-particulate medical packaging intended for non-sterile or downstream sterilization applications. We use highly detailed record keeping to ensure traceability down to the box level. We also have processes in place to ensure that your medical packaging meets your specifications. This includes the process of material ordering and receiving, as well as production and packaging.

Plastic Food Packaging

Security and tamper-resistance also are highly important when it comes to the creation of plastic food packaging as well as the packaging of beverages. Again, only certain types of plastics can be used with foods and beverages. For instance, if we are creating a thermoform tray for a microwavable meal, the type of plastic we use not only needs to be safe for the food but also must be able to withstand the heat of the microwave.

We create a myriad of plastic food packaging designs every year, and these range from thermoform trays that hold cookies and crackers to clamshell packaging that can be used to display and store fruit, pre-made sandwiches or bakery items. We can create plastic food packaging for virtually any type of food, and custom specialty foods packaging is one of our areas of expertise.

If you need plastic food packaging, rest assured that our production methods ensure that the materials we use and all of our processes comply with GMP in regards to direct contact food packaging. Some of the items we often produce include clamshell packages, tubs, lids and a wide variety of trays.

Of course, aside from medical packaging and plastic food packaging, we also produce custom packaging for many other industries. We serve all types of retail companies as well as electronics firms, agricultural companies and industrial firms. Thermoplastics are among the world’s most versatile materials, and we can create virtually any size or shape of package or tray that you might need.
