Paper Containers

Benefits For Consumers

Well-designed packaging is a brand manager's greatest tool to engage the overwhelmed consumer. The paper container addresses many of the top factors that influence a consumer's purchase decision, such as: 

  • Reseal ability
  • Convenient storage
  • Ease of opening

Benefits for Brands

Paper containers also excel at providing physical protection for delicate foods and maintaining freshness, both before and after the container is opened.

To further benefit your brand as well as your product, our paper container can be manufactured in almost any shape or size: tall and skinny, short and broad, or wide-mouthed like a coffee can, easily meeting your specific requirements across various markets and through numerous promotions or size changes. 

To complete your packaging solution and further customize the container, we offer a variety of functional and specialty closures which offer security and tamper evidence.

Finally, our in-house graphics management services ensure your brand messaging and visual identity remain consistent across containers and across the globe.

Sizes, Heights and Diameters

The possibilities are limitless when you choose a paper container manufactured by Sonoco. We deliver a completely customizable package so your product will stand out. A variety of sizes in height and diameter allows your brand to have a demanding presence on the retail shelf. Our container heights and diameters are easily adaptable to fit special usage occasions or retail space considerations, costing little change-over time. We offer paper canisters with 4 main diameters: 211 (68mm), 300 (73mm), 401 (99mm), 502 (130mm), with a variety of heights depending on your preference. Contact us for more details.

Tubes & Cores

Building upon this expertise, we are now the world's leading provider of total converting solutions for customers around the globe.


With our Intellicore roll tracking system, using the world's first radio frequency identification (RFID) enabled cores, customers can automatically identify, track and locate their products at any point in the supply chain.

Radial Crush Tester

Sonoco’s patented radial crush tester measures the radial strength of paper cores by simulating the pressures applied during the winding processes of rolled products such as plastic films and textiles. Adopted by the Composite Can and Tube Institute as approved test method T-158, Sonoco’s proven tester is now available to the industry.


Much of the paperboard used to make Sonoco's fiber cores is from used tubes and cores recovered from customers, and is 100% recyclable.
