After determining that safety, ease of use, and convenient storage were the top priorities for its customers, privately owned food service company Basic American Foods asked York, PA-based Graham Packaging Company to design an innovative plastic can for its WHIPP brand of potato granules, an instant mashed potato product for high-volume food service operations.

Graham's Safe-T-Can is a 105-fl.-oz., six-layer, high-density polyethylene container, which replaces No. 10 metal cans. The can features a wide-mouth, snap-off, reclosable cap, which eliminates the need for a can opener. A peel-back foil membrane barrier under the cap further protects food contents. The Safe-T-Can also features a built-in handle to ensure easy pouring and a no-slip grip.
