new products 12 / Convenience Store News for the Single Store Owner / APRIL 2016 AnchOr TAmper-evidenT pAckAging Developed over a two-year period, Anchor Packaging's new line of tamper-evident containers features Safe Pinch, a break- through design that is virtually leak- proof; eliminates the sharp edges associated with many existing tamper- evident containers; and does not leave the consumer with a plastic strip or label to dispose of, according to the company. The "pinch" feature is boldly embossed on the hinge of the container, and the audible sound and feel of the breaking hinge as it is pinched allows consum- ers to identify whether the container has been tampered with. Safe Pinch containers are made with FDA-approved, post-consumer recycled PET and are reusable and recyclable. They are ideal for nuts, snack mixes, candy, baked goods and dried fruit, as well as salads, cut fruit and sandwiches. The crystal-clear containers span 7 inches by 6 inches, and come in 20-, 24- and 32-ounce sizes. Anchor packaging inc. Ballwin, mo.
