SureHandleTM PET containers
First-ever, one-piece PET containers with an integrated handle
For brand owners who have been waiting for a PET container with an integrated handle, the wait is finally over.
Pretium’s 64-ounce and 2 liter, carafe-style SureHandle™ containers, with a 38-400 mm finish, gives brand owners significant shelf differentiation, handling convenience and aesthetics that were not previously possible.
Specific food and beverages ideally suited for the SureHandle™ container include cold-pressed juices, ready-to-drink teas, sport drinks, nutritional supplements, edible oils, dressings, sauces, marinades, etc. In the household/industrial chemicals category, liquid cleaners and detergents would also benefit.
SureHandle™ received the highest honor from the Institute of Packaging Professionals (IoPP) Ameristar Award judges for a package that surpassed all judging criteria and was unanimously rated ‘outstanding’ in every category. In addition, Surehandle™ won the Beverage, Non-alcoholic and Food Shelf Stable categories.
SureHandle™ opens multiple marketing opportunities for brand owners seeking to appeal to a wider audience. The container is easier to handle for both younger children and older adults, and those with physical challenges, compared to pinch grip or straight-sided alternatives.
Additionally, the container has been designed with enhanced top load capabilities which can potentially reduce secondary packaging costs by up to 80 percent.
Unlike two-piece handled containers, which typically are made from more than one material, the integrated PET handle/body combination is made solely from PET, which facilitates recycling. Monomaterial structure means that the bottle does not have the potential to contaminate the PET recycling stream.
