Ploffie is a packaging solution with a unique opening mechanism and an attention-grabbing design.
When the packaging is opened for the first time, a perforated flap which functions as a tamper-evident closure, and the uppermost part of the integrated bag have to be ripped off.
Now the box can be squeezed on the sides of its narrower end, which opens and closes the packaging with a popping sound. Once opened, the packaging serves as a dispenser, making it easy and fun for kids and adults to pour out the nuts.
This is a perfect example of how cartonboard can be put to work. It demonstrates the material’s full potential, and exploits its natural strength. It’s a very creative and intriguing shape, which cleverly uses the board for different functionalities such as the reclose and dispensing functions, the graphics, and its suitability for nuts or snacks. The squeezing function is very nice. It’s really ready to go on the shelf as is. And it could certainly be displayed and merchandised very well in-store.
