Frozen Foods

Food packaging going from 0 to 400 (degrees)

Sonoco offers a suite of frozen food packaging designed to protect a variety of foods and offer consumers convenience – from bags for flash-frozen produce, to frozen dinner trays that withstand not only the freezer, but also the microwave or oven.


Sonoco has years of experience in the frozen foods arena, packaging everything from flash-frozen fruit to frozen dinners. We understand the unique challenges and needs that frozen food brands face. 

Thermoformed trays and membranes

Sonoco Plastics partners with many of the world's largest food brands in the consumer packaged goods and food service industries to provide thermoformed trays and bowls that meet unique requirements and high standards.  Our polypropylene and CPET trays protect food from freezing temperatures to the heat of the microwave.

Flexible bags

Our flexible bags withstand freezing temperatures to protect frozen fruits, vegetables and shellfish, preserving freshness and quality. Learn more about our flexible packaging options.  

Plastic tubs

Sonoco’s plastic tubs offer a packaging solution for ice cream that stands out on the shelf. We now offer a new barrier injection-molded packaging solution for extended shelf life, available in a wide variety of shapes, including nestable options for efficient transport.

Barrier IML packaging combines robust product protection with trendsetting shelf appeal through eye-catching, full-body graphics. It offers a cost-effective alternative to metal and glass, and it provides a better moisture barrier than traditional multi-layer plastic packaging in a thin-walled package. Durable and lightweight, it's compatible with retort, hot-fill or gas-flush filling systems.

Rigid paper containers

Whether you’re selling your ice cream in single-serve sizes, pints, quarts or even bulk drums, Sonoco’s rigid paperboard packaging is an effective and eye-catching solution. We have decades of experience packaging ice cream for high-end brands as well as for bulk wholesale applications.
