(54)CONTAINER


(57) A container (100) arranged to receive an item comprises: first and second faces (120) joined at a first side (102) and at a second side (104) opposite the first side, each face comprising: a first line of weakness extending between, and tending inwardly between, end regions of the first side (102), the first line of weakness dividing a first edge region of the face (120) from a central region of the face; and a second line of weakness extending between, and tending inwardly between, end regions of the second side, the second line of weakness dividing a second edge region of the face from the central region of the face; and a pair of internal flaps positioned between the first and second faces and spaced inwardly from the first and second sides (102, 104). The container (100) is moveable between: a first configuration in which the first and second faces are flat and the internal flaps are flat and parallel to the faces such that the container is at least substantially flat, and a second configuration in which the first and second edge regions are at an angle with respect to the central region of the faces and the internal flaps are at an angle with respect to the central region of the faces and arranged to act as spacers between the first and second faces. The container (100) is arranged to adopt the second configuration when a pressure is applied to the first and second sides (102, 104). A net for such a container is also described.
