Shelf-stable, heat-and-eat, and pasteurized foods are a consumer-preferred convenience. Gilpin offers monolayer cups for pasteurized crab, seafood and hot-fill soups along with multi-layer, shelf-stable plastic bowls for retort applications. EVOH is used in the multi-layer bowls for the oxygen barrier to meet various distribution requirements. A blend of polyethylene and homopolymer polypropylene provides low temperature impact resistance and high temperature strength needed for high-temp processing. The monolayer and multilayer plastic containers are recyclable.
Gilpin’s plastic cups and bowls are available in standard and custom designs and in a range of sizes. Choose from white and clear plastic or specify a custom color of your choosing. Label options include shrink and pressure-sensitive labels.
These containers run on existing filling and seaming equipment with only minor adjustments. We are available to consult with you on production facilities and equipment to ensure optimal filling and seaming.
Complete your plastic retort container with an easy-open end from Gilpin. This helps ensure the closure feature is compatible with the cup or bowl. Gilpin will also source labels and plastic caps at your request.
These aluminum easy-open ends are designed specifically for our plastic retort containers. If you have questions, contact us.
