A container is formed of a shell having a top section, a bottom section and a central section connecting the top section and the bottom section. At least a majority region of the central section is provided with a plurality of structural ribs about its periphery. The ribs are discontinuous in a circumferential direction extending around the central section. This construction enables the container to withstand deformation due to internal or external pressures.
