Two Compartment Plastic Food Container is essential for processing, storing, transporting, protecting and preserving products. It also means more with less: less waste, less energy, less resources used and reduced costs. Plastic food packaging is lighter, more resistant, more flexible, safer, more hygienic and more innovative than any other material.
As you’d expect a lot of factors have to be taken into account when deciding what packaging materials to use for a product. Things like shape, weight, recyclability and cost all have to be addressed. Take the food industry, for instance, where PET and other plastic containers are still widely used. One of the biggest benefits of plastic here is its flexibility. While glass can be shaped to contain a whole range of different products, plastic has even more possibilities. Apart from bottles, plastic can be molded into all kinds of shapes – and quite easily so – such as canisters, trays and containers.
Additionally, Two Compartment Plastic Food Container generally takes up less space than glass, allowing more products to be stored within the same room. Plastic is also much lighter than glass, a benefit consumers who are prone to buy in bulk greatly appreciate. Finally, the weight and space issue is a big deal from a logistics perspective as more items can be crammed into one truck.
Then there’s the question of recyclability. Both glass and plastic food containers can be recycled, yet in reality glass is recycled less than plastic packaging. Why? Because glass generally requires more energy to be recycled. The Glass Packaging Institute notes that recycling glass uses 66 percent of the energy it would take to manufacture new glass on average, while plastic only requires 10 percent of the energy it takes to produce new plastic.
Whether you're on a quest to prevent food waste or you simply want to store prepared food, reusable containers can do the job. But are some food containers safer than others when it comes to personal and environmental health?
Pick Two Compartment Plastic Food Container and limit their use to cold food storage. They can also be ideal for transporting food. Consider glass or stainless steel containers for cold or hot foods, instead. Since both can be cleaned and reused, they're ideal for home food storage, too.
