Abstract: A container (1) for holding products and comprising a lower part (3) including a bottom panel (5) and side walls (8, 9) upstanding therefrom as well as a top part (4) including a lid (10) and side walls (13, 14) depending therefrom. At least one side wall (15) of the lower and top parts (3 and 4 respectively) extending in adjoining overlapping relationship. The lid (10) is prolonged at its edge (18) that is turned towards the common side wall (15) in order to form a projecting lid-opening grip flap (19). The flap, having been doubled, extends back rearwardly to and connects to the common side wall via a tear perforation (23). At a score (11) between the lid (10) of the top part (4) and at least one of its other side walls (13, 14) there is a rear face cut score (24), such that the lid (10), when a pulling force is applied on the lid-opening grip flap (19), may be opened as a result of splitting of the tear perforation and the rear-face cut score.
