Infants and toddlers

The most important things in life often come in the smallest packages. 

Our research shows that your busy customers look for certain key aspects in powdered infant formula packaging, including product safety, convenience features for “no-fuss” packaging and re-closeability. As a global supplier of infant formula and baby/toddler pureed food packaging to some of the largest companies in the industry, we provide a package that communicates reliability, quality and convenience.

Safety and security are our primary concern. We offer tamper-evident peelable membrane closures and peel-off tops, as well as reclosable closure options. Our PermaSafe® barrier packaging is virtually impermeable to oxygen and water vapor, which ensures superior product protection and a longer shelf life. Perfect for all processed foods, including sterilised and pasteurised foods traditionally packed in glass or tinplate, it’s convenient, lightweight, easy to open and resealable -- and it looks great on the shelf. It is also shatterproof and up to 90% lighter than conventional glass jars.

Barrier In-Mould Labeling (IML)

Sonoco’s plastic consumer packaging is injection moulded using an in-mould labeling (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
  • Protection – Tests have shown a dramatically reduced water vapor transmission rate (WVTR) compared to standard monolayer polypropylene packaging 
  • Strength – the robust structure will survive the retort process
  • Efficiency – Choose a nestable design for supply chain optimization
  • Simplicity – IML packaging offers a high barrier delivered via a monolayer structure
  • Convenience – Lightweight and easy to open, IML packaging is ideal for on-the-go consumers

In-mould labeling is available for all our plastic consumer packaging, withstanding the rigorous filling and storing methods for pasteurised, heat-sterilised and frozen foods.
