Pathway Solutions Inc. has launched new shelf-ready packaging, called the Advantage Plus™, that eliminates the use of an outer retail carton, saving an estimated one million pounds of waste annually**.
The Advantage Plus! Packaging System is a unitized package combining custom printed paper-film lids heat-sealed to custom-printed pressed paperboard trays, as the body. Both the lidding construction and trays are oven and microwave safe. As a result, this unitized package solution offers ample product protection expected from a retail carton while removing an entire processing step; decreasing transportation and plant labor costs, freeing up warehouse and production floor space, and most importantly requiring less material to complete the finished package. The completed package is shipped in a shelf-ready retail corrugated case that takes up approximately 80% of the amount of space as the traditional retail carton/shelf-ready case, thus allowing for more finished packs per pallet; more finished packs per truckload to the retailer.
