Title (EN) CONTAINER HAVING CONTENT RETAINING FEATURES
(FR) RÉCIPIENT AYANT DES ÉLÉMENTS DE RETENUE DE CONTENU
Abstract:
(EN) A food container includes a base having one or more cavities therein configured to accept food items, each cavity including one or more retaining features that maintain the food item within the cavity when the container is tipped or overturned. The retaining feature can include one or more undercuts that engage with the food item or a wrapper or liner thereof. Or the undercuts can entrap the food item within the cavity by overhanging or overlying a surface of the food item or associated wrapper or liner. Embodiments include a plurality of opposing and/or equally spaced retaining features positioned proximal to the cavity rim. Embodiments include base supporting posts that are deformable to temporarily disengage the retaining feature, thereby allowing easy removal of the food item. The base supporting posts can engage with corresponding lid supporting posts to avoid crushing of the closed container.
(FR) L'invention concerne un récipient alimentaire comprenant une base ayant une ou plusieurs cavités conçues pour recevoir des articles alimentaires, chaque cavité comprenant un ou plusieurs éléments de retenue qui maintiennent l'article alimentaire à l'intérieur de la cavité lorsque le récipient est incliné ou retourné. L'élément de retenue peut comprendre une ou plusieurs contre-dépouilles qui viennent en prise avec l'article alimentaire ou un emballage ou un revêtement de celui-ci. En variante, les contre-dépouilles peuvent piéger l'article alimentaire à l'intérieur de la cavité par surplomb ou recouvrement d'une surface de l'article alimentaire ou de l'emballage ou du revêtement associé. Des modes de réalisation comprennent une pluralité d'éléments de retenue opposés et/ou espacés de manière égale positionnés à proximité de la bordure de cavité. Des modes de réalisation comprennent des montants de support de base qui sont déformables pour libérer temporairement l'élément de retenue, ce qui permet un retrait facile de l'article alimentaire. Les montants de support de base peuvent venir en prise avec des montants de support de couvercle correspondants pour éviter un écrasement du récipient fermé.
