US Sugar is set to launch its Plantation brand natural raw sugar in the new Zipbox resealable carton format, developed by a joint venture between Zip-Pak and THEM.

The poly-coated paperboard carton incorporates an attached flexible film header containing a Zip-Pak press-to-close solution.

The carton has been designed to facilitate the direct-filling of products without the need for an inner liner, and eliminates the need to use clips or transfer contents into a separate container.

The package can hold up to 40% more product by removing the liner while maximising the product-to-package ratio and cube usage to reduce transportation costs.
