Packaging options for both food service and retail
Whatever you are packaging, chances are you could benefit from using a liner to protect your products. Adding a liner to your boxes, bins, crates, and various containers helps to keep items clean, dry, and secure during both storage and transit to your valued customers. Need a gusseted liner to fit a specific box size, or perhaps a flat poly bag? Available in clear and colored film options, Plascon has the flexible packaging you are looking for – and our films are all food grade and FDA approved making them suitable for a wide range of items!
Plascon is a blown films manufacturer located in Traverse City, Michigan. Our films are available in LLDPE, HDE, and Biodegradable blends, which are then converted into variety of bags and liners including Cook Chill and Sous Vide bags, Saftea® Liner iced tea urn liners, box and container liners, and also trash liners. If you package and ship or store items, chances are we have a liner for that!
Our food grade liners are perfectly suited for agriculture to help preserve produce while also reducing risk of contamination. Use of a liner can greatly increase shelf life, allowing delivery to be fresh and pristine. Farmers, meat packagers, and bakeries all utilize our liners as an extra layer of security.
Our liners are not limited to food products, however. Any item that is shipped in a box can benefit from a liner as a layer of protection. It helps to keep items clean and dry if exposed to water or other elements. Examples include:
Small parts (screws, bolts, etc.)
Cook Chill Bags
Plascon Cook Chill Bags are made with durable co-extruded 7-layer film ideally suited for Cook Chill applications. The seven layers are extruded simultaneously at the time of production, resulting in optimized quality and strength of film. 7-layer film has long been the standard for high abuse applications such as a Cook Chill tumble chiller or thermal shock. We offer clipped, straight and angle seal options, and handle bag options and are available in clear or colored films. Many standard sizes are in stock and ready to ship.
Benefits of using the Cook Chill method include consistent taste, freshness and quality, and also increased sanitation as once the raw ingredients go into the cooking kettle, the food is never again exposed to handling.
We also offer many handy Cook Chill accessories including a bundled starter set, individual hand and foot sealers, ring stands, and clips to get you started or to restock your supply. Many items are available to purchase online, or contact us direct to discuss other options.
Restaurants, convenience stores, caterers, and other foodservice operators have come to trust our patented iced tea urn liners for maximum food safety and hygiene. Saftea® Liners fit most standard tea urn dispensers, and keep your iced tea fresher, better tasting, and more sanitary as it protects against harmful bacteria and molds common with all teas. Simply replace the liner every 24 hours, and you eliminate the tedious cleaning of disassembling, scrubbing, and reassembling the spigot and urn each day. Saves time, labor, and cleaning chemical expenses all while delivering a better tasting and more hygienic beverage for your valued customers.
