Most people know about Hungry Jack®, the tasty syrup that can be safely warmed in the microwave in less than two minutes, providing a sweetened treat for breakfast lovers everywhere. What many people don’t know is the innovation behind the microwavable packaging.
Hungry Jack® came to CCC with a need for a microwavable package to safely and effectively warm their product. The catch was that the package needed to be microwaved multiple times, with less and less product in the container as it was used. On top of that, it needed to be able to withstand temperatures on the other end of the spectrum when it was placed into the refrigerator.
CCC’s Studio PKGTM designed a specialized bottle that could be heated, cooled, and reheated without failure. Proprietary designs for the handle and closure allowed the bottle to withstand the wide temperature fluctuations, maintaining the product’s integrity.
The innovative bottle underwent testing that provided the customer, and ultimately consumers, precise instructions on how long to heat the product given the amount left in the packaging. Today, consumers can enjoy fresh, warm syrup without the hazards of burning their fingers on a hot handle or finding syrup splattered all over the microwave because of a packaging failure.
Dura-Lite family of bottles
Customers have become so accustomed to the dairy square, a versatile bottle used for both dairy and water packaging, because it hasn’t changed much in the past 20 years. CCC’s innovative designers at Studio PKG took it upon themselves to challenge the status quo and have developed the Dura-Lite family of bottles.
CCC’s customers needed bottles made with only one layer for smaller annual quantities and without the added costs or limitations of the alternatives. Working together, we developed special processing and testing techniques to create a bottle that met CCC’s high standards and Always Made Right® commitment.
Caseless For Dura-Lite
Several customers approached CCC to produce a stackable case less dairy square that would integrate with a tray system, as they found it to be well-suited to their stores’ needs. CCC’s Dura-Lite dairy gallon was designed to have a greater top load strength despite having less gram weight than traditional packaging.
