Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9856668A1] A container (10a) is stackable on a like container but unable to nest with it. In this example, this first type of container has upright sides. Stacking means are provided to allow this first type of container to support a nesting container which is substantially the same size in plan but has slanting walls (to allow nesting) and therefore has a base which is smaller in plan than the mouth of the first container. The first type of container may be collapsible.
