Overview

The Intercon Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) is a light weight and non-corrosive plastic container for the food manufacturing sector.

Made from food grade polypropylene, this 1040 litre unit can be used for liquid food applications such as juice, oil, mayonnaise, vinegar, plus more...

This container is 40% lighter than some composite alternatives. It significantly increases payload capacity and reduces reverse logistics costs. It features a number of innovations to meet the high standards of the food industry and to withstand the rigours of the share and reuse environment.

The Intercon is compatible with general purpose shipping containers. It is returnable, reusable and recyclable and brings additional flexibility to CHEP’s range of material handling solutions.
