POSSIBLE ANSWERS
 
Keeping the contents fresh.
The contents of the container will remain fresh, because of the choice of material polypropylene and that way it has been used. Polypropylene is flexible which means that the lid stretches over the casing, creating a very good seal, keeping the food as fresh as possible.
 
Transportation of the contents.
The container is easy to transport. It is small and light and consequently easy to carry or pack in a school bag. It has a handy carrying handle, that has been ergonomically designed to fit a child’s hand comfortably.
 
Protects the contents.
The food contents of the container are quite well protected. The container absorbs drops and knocks, because this is one physical property of polypropylene. However, if the container is shaken the food can move around and may be displaced. This is minimised due to the internal divide. Polypropylene is a hygienic material and washes well.
 
Aesthetically pleasing.
The container is designed to appeal to young children. It is a symmetrical shape and well balanced. The heart shape promotes the image of healthy eating and is a recognisable shape. The container comes in a range of colours, appealing to a wide base of potential customers.
 
Easy to manufacture
Polypropylene is suitable for blow moulding and consequently large number of containers can be made relatively quickly. The moulded polypropylene container may need triming by hand, to remove rough edges and excess material. However, this is a relatively simple task.
