Jabil Packaging Solutions Announces Lightweighting Innovation

Jabil Packaging Solutions recently announced its new beverages innovation: A lightweight, innovative carafe-style closure for PET bottles to eliminate the tamper-evidence seal liner and incorporate a molded in, visible tamper-evidence band.  

Jabil is the first to market with a visible tamper evidence band, and one of the first with a linerless plug seal. The benefits these features provide:   

    • The plug seal means that bottles do not need a seal liner; this is a cost savings to CPG companies. 
    • Currently tamper evidence is a seal liner under the cap, so it is not visible from the store shelf. This has always been problematic because closures can become unscrewed during transport and appear tampered with even when they have not been.  
        • This feature is especially relevant during the current heightened hygiene awareness among consumers – people do not want bottles that have been tampered with and they also don’t want to be seen touching all of the products on the shelf to check for same.   
    • Sustainability – eliminates problematic components that cannot be recycled (i.e., current seal liners) 
    • The bold / colorful carafe closure helps the beverage stand out on consumer shelves
