Infants and Toddlers

The most important things in life often come in the smallest packages. 

Our research shows that your busy customers look for certain key aspects in powdered infant formula packaging, including product safety, convenience features for “no-fuss” packaging and re-closeability. As a global supplier of infant formula and baby/toddler food puree packaging to some of the largest players in the industry, we provide a package that communicates reliability, quality and convenience.

Our extensive knowledge of materials science allows us to offer great flexibility in sizes, opening features, and labeling options. Sonoco is proud to meet the needs of consumers as we offer a variety of BPA non-intent options in this product line.

Rigid paper containers

Compared to a metal can, the rigid paper container yields better product protection and less denting; minimum of a 30 percent reduction in packaging weight; and a more efficient package that will reduce freight costs and scrap rate. Sonoco offers high-speed packing capabilities and a global intellect in membrane sealing and overcap lidding.  For such an important product, you need a premium package that will assure customers they are taken care of when they choose you.

Sealed Safe® membrane ends

Lightweight, peelable customer-preferred membrane closures provide easy, one-piece opening. Sonoco’s lightweight Sealed Safe® membrane ends are designed specifically for dry products like powdered infant formula to keep out unwanted oxygen, moisture and aroma. Sealed Safe® membrane ends can be double seamed on existing equipment with just minor modifications. They can also be printed or embossed to enhance brand promotion.
