Placon adds new base to GoCubes product packaging line

PKBR Staff Writer Published 20 April 2018

Wisconsin-based packaging company Placon has added new base to its GoCubes food packaging product line to meeting the increasing demand for on-the-go packaging.

The new 10-ounce capacity base joins the product line, which was introduced in 2015.

The new base providers further merchandising opportunities for convenient, grab-and-go snacking and freshly prepared food options.

It offers additional accessibility and portability. The new 10-ounce base is ideal for snack foods including dry packed foods like nuts, snack mixes and candy, as well as freshly prepared foods including fruit, vegetables and deli salads.

GoCubes is currently available in six ultra-sleek base sizes from 12 to 36 ounces. They work with a one-size fits all recycled PET lid option with secure seals, easy open tabs, and crystal clear anti-fog technology. 

Three insert trays can be utilized for mixing and matching. GoCubes, which are reusable and recyclable, are made with EcoStar recycled PET material from curbside plastic bottles

Placon stock food sales manager Ben Brummerhop said “At Placon, our food packaging solutions attract customers with quality designs in a variety of different sizes.

“The new GoCube base continues to help meet the growing consumer trends while offering additional merchandising options.”

Recently, the company had showcased its medical device packaging solutions at the MD&M West tradeshow in Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California, US.

A family-owned business since 1966, Placon is a vertically integrated designer, thermoformer and injection molder of light gauge rigid plastic packaging with its own in-house PET recycling and extrusion facility.
