Benefits & options
Sonoco understands the unique challenges and needs that frozen food brands face.
Ice cream and gelato are premium desserts for customers who want to treat themselves. We understand this, and offer the marketing opportunities and product protection to help you convey your product’s quality.
Our in-mould labelling technique gives you the striking graphics to stand out in the freezer aisle, and our injection-moulded tubs offer a unique shape and convenient stackability that attract customers.
Most importantly, our outstanding product protection ensures that what’s inside the package looks like what’s on the label. Our packages stand up to extreme temperatures during filling and storage, and hold up well for the entire cycle of use, allowing customers to reseal containers and return to a fresh treat day after day.
In-Mould Labelling (IML)
Sonoco’s plastic consumer packaging is injection moulded using an in-mould labelling (IML) technique. This technique guarantees maximum freedom of design, showcasing your brand’s visual strategy while standing out on the shelf.
Our IML packaging offers:
- Shelf appeal
Access superior graphics and branding via a label that covers more of your packaging’s surface area
Tests have shown a dramatically reduced water vapor transmission rate (WVTR) compared to standard monolayer polypropylene packaging
The robust structure will survive the retort process
Choose a nestable design for supply chain optimization
IML packaging offers a high barrier delivered via a monolayer structure
Lightweight and easy to open, IML packaging is ideal for on-the-go consumers
In-mould labelling is available for all our plastic consumer packaging, withstanding the rigorous filling and storing methods for pasteurised, heat-sterilised and frozen foods.
