Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0051910A1] A package for a product is provided. The package has a container (21) for storing the product. The container has an opening (56) through which the product (34) can be removed during use. A lid (22) is attached to the container by a hinge (48), and the lid closes the opening when the lid is in a closed position. A seal (50) extends across the opening to separate the product stored in the container from the environment, thereby maintaining the freshness and integrity of the product stored in the package. The seal has a depression (72) therein for receiving a utensil (64) such that the utensil is separated from the product of the container. This arrangement provides a clean utensil which is easily located by a user of the package upon first opening of the package. The seal can be formed as single layer or from a plurality of layers.
