US plastic food packaging manufacturer Anchor Packaging has expanded its range of Culinary Squares bases and lids with new additions.

The new products with cut-resistant 9in² bases and clear lids make the contents visible to consumers.

The vented lids, made with crystal-clear polypropylene (PP) with Clear Guard anti-fog technology, have a new deeper-dome variant in addition to the existing single and three-compartment.

The 8.5in² black PP bases, available in single and three-compartment designs, fit all the three lids with secure, leak-resistant closures that claim to preserve food presentation and avoid messy spills.

"There is no need to re-plate chilled, prepared foods, when reheated in the microwave."

These packages are capable of withstanding temperatures up to 230°F in warming units, under heat lamps, or in the microwave. The company also claims there is no need to re-plate chilled, prepared foods, when reheated in the microwave.

The containers, designed to maximise performance and minimise packaging cost, are made with a natural mineral additive, reducing the use of petroleum based resin by 40%.

The bases and lids are dishwasher-safe, providing consumer-convenient reusability, and are recyclable curbside.

Based in Saint Louis, Missouri, Anchor operates facilities in Marmaduke and Paragould, Arkansas; Mount Vernon, Kentucky; and Pocitos, Argentina, where it manufactures aluminium foil and sheet roll cutter boxes, popup sheets, pans, and lids for ovenable applications; microwave-safe polypropylene takeout containers, cold and fresh PET takeout containers besides many others.
