Most people know about Hungry Jack®, the tasty syrup that can be safely warmed in the microwave in less than two minutes, providing a sweetened treat for breakfast lovers everywhere. What many people don’t know is the innovation behind the microwavable packaging.
Hungry Jack® came to plastic food packaging company Altium with a need for custom food packaging solutions to safely and effectively warm their product. The catch was that the package needed to be microwaved multiple times, with less and less product in the container as it was used. On top of that, it needed to be able to withstand temperatures on the other end of the spectrum when it was placed into the refrigerator.
