Plascon is a leading manufacturer of flexible packaging solutions, including Saftea® Liner iced tea urn liners.  With Saftea® Liner, the tea never comes in direct contact with the tea urn, eliminating harmful mold and bacteria from forming (a common problem with all teas). As an added bonus, there is never an aftertaste of cleaning chemicals from an improperly rinsed tea urn.

The results are only the freshest and highest quality iced tea!  Where do you purchase fresh brewed iced tea?  Restaurants, cafes, caterers, convenience stores, and more are switching to Saftea® Liner to ensure only the finest ice teas are served in their establishments.  Next time you buy a fresh brewed iced tea, ask them if they use Saftea® Liner!
