Rigid Paper Containers

If you're looking for iconic packaging that stands out in the crowd, our rigid paper container may be just what you're searching for. Round and shaped rigid paper packaging delivers brand personality, product performance and protection, and cost advantages, all while supporting sustainability goals.

Sonoco's Paper Container: The Total Package

When it comes to choosing the right package, certain elements must come together: functionality, shelf appeal, and product protection. The paper container has all of those, delivering an easy-to-stack, easy-to-store rigid format that protects the products inside--from oats to frozen juice to baby formula--while giving a natural kraft, premium metallic, or colorful and interactive display on shelf. And at Sonoco, we can deliver the whole solution, from the metal ends and membranes, to the can body, to the graphic development for the label.

Numerous Applications. Multiple Names.

With increasing attention to the quality of ingredients, the origins of our food, and the availability of specialty products from around the world, premium packaging has grown in relevance on shelf. From packaging confectionary gift boxes, to protecting the highest quality wine and spirits, the rigid paper container uses foil and matte finishes as well as gold-coated, embossed and engraved ends to deliver a premium presentation.

Consumer Insights


“It is easy to open, stacks well in cupboards, and keeps food fresh. Also, if I drop the package, it stays closed.”


“When transporting food items from the market, I can trust that the food won't be damaged. It is resealable so I don't have to worry about repackaging after opening. I believe it stays fresh longer.”


“For snack items, I think it's convenient and a reliable form of packaging.”


“I would choose this type of packaging, because I love that it is in a container that reseals the food for me, so I don't have to find another container or bag for the food inside. Really convenient.”
