Abstract

An article carrier and a blank for forming an article carrier for carrying one or more articles (B1, B2, B3) comprising a plurality of panels for forming the opposed sides and ends of the article carrier including a pair of laterally spaced top wall panels (52, 68) hingedly connected to the opposed side walls (14, 189). A carrying handle (H) is hinged to the top wall panels (52, 68).
The handle (H) is movable between a retracted position when the handle does not extend above the top of the articles and deployed position wherby the handle protrudes above the article tops.
