Title (EN) VENTILATED CONTAINER FOR PRODUCE
(FR) CONTENANT AÉRÉ POUR PRODUITS ALIMENTAIRES
Abstract:
(EN) A ventilated container for produce includes a bottom, sidewalls extending upwardly from the bottom, and a rim having a flattened top surface. The sidewalls include at least one ventilation opening located proximate the rim of the container thereby permitting the rim of the container to be generally flat and uninterrupted. The location of ventilation opening(s) proximate the rim of the container allows the flow of rising ethylene gas within the container to exit near the top of the container improving ventilation within the container. A plastic film can be applied over the top of the container and is adhered to the container with an adhesive to form a secure and rigid seal between the film and the container. The flattened surface of the rim improves the adherence between a film and the container to enclose and seal the container, aids the rigidity of the container, and lessens the likelihood of the edges of the rim being bent or folded when pressure is exerted to protect produce provided within the container. Moreover, an aperture on the bottom of the container provides drainage of liquid from the container and allow air to flow.
(FR) Cette invention concerne un contenant aéré pour produits alimentaires, comprenant un fond, des parois latérales s'étendant vers le haut à partir du fond, et un rebord possédant une surface supérieure aplatie. Les parois latérales comprennent au moins une ouverture d'aération ménagée à proximité du rebord du contenant, ce qui permet au rebord du contenant d'être généralement plan et ininterrompu. L'emplacement de l'ouverture/des ouvertures d'aération à proximité du rebord du contenant permet au flux de gaz d'éthylène montant à l'intérieur du contenant de sortir à proximité du dessus du contenant, ce qui améliore l'aération à l'intérieur du contenant. Un film plastique peut être appliqué sur le dessus de contenant et il est collé au contenant par un adhésif pour former un joint d'étanchéité solide et sécurisé entre le film et le contenant. La surface aplatie du rebord améliore l'adhérence entre un film et le contenant pour fermer et sceller le contenant, ce qui améliore la rigidité du contenant, et réduit la probabilité que les bords du rebord soient déformés ou pliés lorsqu'une pression est exercée pour protéger les produits alimentaires disposés à l'intérieur du contenant. De plus, une ouverture sur le fond du contenant permet le drainage d'un liquide à partir du contenant et permet à l'air de circuler.
