Our patented safety pack two piece tamper evident safety pack features a tamper evident lid that fits any size of container. This delivers a tamper evident packaging solution that is both convenient and safe.


Why does Australia need tamper proof packaging?

The potential for serious harm from food tampering makes it extremely important to make food containers tamper evident. There was a national scandal when Australians discovered needles in packaged strawberries in 2018. These came from a fruit farm in Queensland that used packaging with vents that allowed direct access to the contents.


Tamper proof fruit containers prevent needle insertion

South Plastic tamper proof fruit containers have vents built into the lids that overlap the non-vented side of the container. This makes it impossible to insert needles or other contaminants into the contents without damaging the container. Our patented vent design is unique, and eliminates the problem of poor ventilation caused by ventless tamper evident packaging.


What are the features of South Plastic sustainable tamper evident fruit containers?

  • Manufactured with up to 100% post-consumer recycled PET (RPET)
  • Patented design with 16 air-vents in the container top keeps contents fresh for extended shelf-life.
  • Separate lid enables completely customizable capacity
  • Smooth edged safety lock breaks easily without leaving a tear-off strip
  • Needles cannot be inserted through the air vents without visibly damaging the packaging.
  • Standard 24 oz and 36 oz sizes are ideal for fruit packaging
