Fabri-Kal knows, "There's many a slip twixt the cup and the lip." The huge thermo-former of polyolefins (polypropylenes and high-density polyethylenes) makes a diversity of plastic containers. Products include juice cups, lids, boxes, bowls, and produce trays. Fabri-Kal also makes a green packaging line using biodegradable materials such as a polylactic acid (PLA) resin derived from plants instead oil, or 20% post-consumer recycled PETE. The company's technical and design resources offer concept development, product drawing, thermoform simulations, and pre-production testing and analysis. Fabri-Kal's five US plants cater to foodservice and consumer packaging, and retail markets.
