KALAMAZOO, Mich., April 2, 2009 – Fabri-Kal, a leading provider of disposable foodservice packaging, announced its latest sustainable foodservice packaging solution, IndulgeTM dessert containers and lids. Made from a minimum of 20 percent post-consumer recycled PETE, Indulge dessert containers allow operators to show their customers they care about the environment, while serving their products in an upscale, crystal-clear package. Indulge dessert containers and lids are made in the U.S.A.
Indulge dessert containers feature a stylish and unique swirl-pattern design to showcase frozen confections such as ice cream, gelato, frozen yogurt and sorbet. The containers are also appropriate for serving other treats such as parfaits, mousse and fruit salad. The containers are available in 5, 8, and 12 oz. sizes, with matching dome and flat lids. Two dome lids feature the unique swirl design – the tall dome lid that can also serve as a treat dish, and the low-profile swirl dome lid.
Indulge containers and lids are made entirely from PETE and contain a minimum of 20 percent post-consumer recycled material. Indulge containers strengthen the sustainability loop by incorporating plastics that have collected in commercial and residential recycling programs. Indulge containers are entirely recyclable to enrich the flow of recoverable materials and reduce plastic destined for traditional waste streams. The containers comply with FDA requirements for food contact.
Indulge dessert containers and lids are crystal clear and offer complete product visibility to make all food products look their best. The containers and lids are made from a durable, robust material, ensuring customer satisfaction.
Indulge containers provide outstanding branding opportunities, as operators can print their own custom design on all three containers. Indulge 5, 8, and 12 oz. containers can be custom printed in up to five colors.
Fabri-Kal helps operators that use Indulge containers promote their environmental leadership through their use of the products. Point-of-sale (POS) materials that communicate the Indulge story are available free of charge through Fabri-Kal’s website – f-k.com.
