Thermoformed ContainersPlastic Bowl Packaging

Every once in a while, we get challenged to help our clients create totally unique products.  This was the case when our design team was approached by a restaurant chain in the Pacific Northwest with the goal of thermoforming a collapsible, salad bowl container.

The 3-Piece Design

Our client was looking for a supplier that could produce an innovative to-go salad container that would function as an easy-to-use salad bowl once it was opened.

The complete package featured an innovative expanding and contracting bowl, a segmented tray for certain ingredients, and a friction-fit lid.

The Expanding/Contracting Bowl

The innovative bowl is designed to “pop” open once the customer opens the package. Our engineers worked with the customer to develop a series of ribs and channels on the bottom of the container that would allow the package to expand while still maintaining its form.

The success of this to-go salad container has led to additional sizes being developed and expanded distribution for our client. If you have an interest in creating custom salad bowl packaging or virtually any other type of plastic bowl packaging, please contact us.
