Americas: Sonoco Alloyd’s package marries thermoforming, sliding lid


Sonoco Alloyd, part of Sonoco Display and Packaging, has developed a package that dispenses product and conveniently stores unused portions easily.

The patent-pending packaging design combines thermoformed technology with a sliding lid.

The DivvyPack dispensable packaging system allows careful, singular ‘divvying’ of product for multi-count packages.

The lid slides away without opening completely, making it easy to dispense a singular product from a multi-product package.

Interlocking channels along the sides of the sliding lid and tray allow for easy, one handed opening and reclosing of the package, with an audible snap when locking closed.

The package combines easy-open technology with tamper evidence, reassuring customers that their product is protected.

The format suits standard multiple-quantity packaging, club store packaging and gift-with-purchase promotions.

The flat lid, clear packaging and customizable shape and size provide a variety of marketing options.

The DivvyPack package will be displayed at Pack Expo 2015 in Las Vegas, US, from September 28 to 30.
