The packaging industry is constantly looking for green or sustainable solutions to reduce materials consumption and cost. The shunted partition represents a large step towards achieving these goals. It has a reduced shoulder height and a reduced length and width that reach just beyond the radius of the product bottles it is separating. The reduced size provides a substantial cost savings and dramatic reduction in materials consumption – a greener package!
