Sayreville-based food packaging company Sabert Corp. is continuing to grow its lineup of eco-friendly products.
In a May 23 press release, Sabert announced the launch of EcoSnap, a product family that comes with a fully recyclable lid that snaps onto a PFAS-free paperboard base using an audible locking system to keep food secure.
Citing growing consumer interest in businesses offering more eco-friendly products, Stephny Halstead, vice president, Marketing & New Product Development, said Sabert understands “operators increasingly need food packaging products that are sustainable, safe and effective.”
The newly launched EcoSnap “delivers on all of those aspects and more,” Halstead said. “With 40 years of innovation and a strong focus on sustainability, Sabert is uniquely positioned to continue to help operators address their customers’ growing demands and interests with best-in-class, eco-friendly food packaging solutions.”
The stackable clear lid technology helps merchandise various hot and cold food items, giving operators an opportunity to enhance how offerings look on the shelf, while the sustainable packaging’s water-based grease barrier better maintains and protects food quality.
EcoSnap also features stackable design for merchandising, transport and storage; smooth wall lid for premium product presentation; and enhanced branding capabilities, such as colorful custom sidewall printing and embossed PET lids.
The EcoSnap paperboard base and clear PET lid are available in 6-inch-by-6-inch, 6-inch-by-9-inch, 8-inch-by-8-inch and 9-inch-by-9-inch sets.
The launch comes as Sabert continues to work toward its goal to eliminate all intentionally added per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) from its portfolio by the end of 2023.
The company said its entire line of food packaging products – including all future items and customer-specific product designs – will be completely free of PFAS, which are potentially harmful substances known as “forever chemicals” because they never break down in the environment and have been linked to numerous health issues, including immune system suppression and increased cancer risk.
