The INTERCON Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) is light weight and noncorrosive plastic container specifically introduced for the food manufacturing sector.

Made from food-grade polypropylene, this lightweight 1000litre unit can be used liquid food applications from juices, oil, mayonnaise, to vinegar. Being 40% lighter than some composite alternatives, the INTERCON significantly increases payload capacity and reduces reverse logistics costs. Plus it features a number of innovations to meet the high standards of the food industry and to withstand the rigours of the pooled environment.

The INTERCON is compatible with General Purpose shipping containers (ISO), returnable, reusable and recyclable and brings additional flexibility to CHEP’s range of material handling solutions.
