Hokkaido products also leverage material advantage for aesthetic beauty.

KINGSPORT, Tennessee

Families throughout Vietnam now have a premium kitchen option to preserve their food while also protecting the health and safety of everyone in their household: Inochi Hokkaido containers made with Eastman Tritan copolyester.

This collaboration between Eastman and Tan Phu Vietnam for its Inochi line of products, a premium household brand highly regarded for performance and elegant design, has elevated food storage choices for the Vietnam market. Tan Phu adopted Tritan to incorporate a superior material that provides customers a container with no compromises.

Tritan provides the crystal clarity of glass but the durability of a polymer, with high chemical and heat resistance for durability through repeated dishwasher cycles and toughness to resist cracking and crazing. Tritan is also BPA free — not manufactured with bisphenol A (BPA) or other bisphenol compounds. The easy processing qualities of Tritan were also of paramount importance.

Inochi Hokkaido Tritan food storage containers are named after Hokkaido, an island in northern Japan revered for its natural beauty. The rectangular food containers are available in multiple colors and five sizes ranging from 500 to 5000 milliliters. Hokkaido containers safely preserve fresh produce and other foods for longer durations in refrigerators or freezers.

Tan Phu also adopted Tritan for its Yoko Tritan seasoning jars, a line of containers for storing seasonings and tea that feature a sophisticated, minimalist design and are available in various pastel tones. “We are pleased to collaborate with Eastman, as bringing new Tritan products to customers not only helps Tan Phu, in general, and Inochi, in particular, enlarge and diversify our portfolio but also affirms our determination to meet the increasing needs of customers with improved quality and safer products,” said Tan Phu Vietnam President Tuan Hoang. “This has enabled immediate growth in the markets we serve.”
