Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9728051A1] A multi-tier carton for groups of articles is formed from upper and lower blanks (40, 10) of foldable sheet material in which the lower blank includes foldable flaps (F1 - F4) to enhance the stacking strength of the carton. The carton also includes upstanding locating tabs (T1' - T4') and complementary locating apertures (H1 - H8) provided in each carton by both blanks so that a pair of like cartons can be inter-engaged when stacked to improve stacking stability.
