PPC's History

PPC started in 1961 as a pioneer in frozen seafood packaging.

Throughout the years PPC has evolved, grown, and established itself as a perishable packaging innovator and leader in this industry.

We broadened our success to include a large variety of products and industries while staying true to our superior quality and service goals.
PPC was started by, Ted Heidenreich Jr, to develop innovative perishable packaging solutions for sectors of the seafood industry not being properly served by the food packaging manufacturers. Over 55 years later PPC remains an industry leader proudly owned and operated by Ted's family and many long-time employees who carry on his legacy of continually developing new perishable packaging solutions for evolving needs.
