Custom Packaging of Food for Ferraro Rocher

At Package Development Co., Inc. we specialize in helping customers overcome their packaging challenges. In the project highlighted here, we were commissioned by the Ferraro Rocher food company to overhaul a number of existing injection-molded packaging products. We consulted with the company to reach the design that would satisfy all of their specifications including their tight time frame, and the specialized standards regarding food packaging such as temperature, permeation, oxygen levels, shelf life, and tamper resistance.

Our ultra-high pressure thermoform machine was employed to manipulate clear recycled PET and metalized gold PET into the various shapes and sizes called for. Our thermoformed packaging proved to be more flexible and faster to produce than their previous injection molded packaging, along with lower tool cost that resulted in a considerable cost savings. Packaging is rapidly turned around, handling low to high volume with shipments to customer locations in USA, Mexico, South America, Puerto Rico, and Canada. Products are held to the highest industry standards, subjected to stringent testing protocols by our team of internal specialists and screened with our customized QC/QA process.
