The switch from plastic bottles and doy-packs to the SuperLock® pot from RPC Superfos has enabled Spanish food producer Casa Ametller to expand its range of cold and hot soups and give them a more premium image.

A family-owned company established in 2001, Casa Ametller produces a range of high quality fine food products and also has 74 retail stores, mainly in the Catalonian region near Barcelona. The company's soup range was only recently launched in Spain, Switzerland and Germany but with the advent of the SuperLock® pot this has now expanded into 11 different flavours.

The previous packs were produced in-house and while they worked well, they did not deliver the high class solution that Casa Ametller wanted to offer, as Albert Massaneda, team member of new development, explains:

"In line with an overall growth and expansion strategy, we wanted to obtain more customer attention and obviously sell more soups. Through the SuperLock® pot with in-mould labelling we can clearly communicate the high quality of our soups. We appreciate the rigid plastic solution as well as the increased shelf life that our soups get with this pot."

As a soup producer, Casa Ametller values the fact that the SuperLock® pot is suitable for hot filling and autoclaving in the process line, while for end-users, it delivers a premium customer experience. Albert Massaneda highlights how easy it is to open and re-close the pot thanks to the click-on screw-off lid, and he also points out the membrane, which can be effortlessly peeled off.

"Working with RPC Superfos has been a pleasure", he concludes. "We have received competent service in a proper way and all the support that we needed. It takes some time to implement a packaging project from start to launch; however, looking at the great result, I would not have done it any other way."

Project helps prevent food waste at home

A survey conducted by the Danish Technological Institute has shown that 14% of Danish household food waste stems from meal leftovers. Although these can be reheated, very often this is in a microwave oven, and the survey identified that many find the uneven heating of this process makes the food less savoury. In an attempt to alter this behaviour, RPC Superfos has contributed to the development of a new multifunctional plastic storage box which ensures a more even distribution of the microwave heat.

Advanced in-mould labelling from RPC Superfos has been a critical factor in the successful relaunch of a range of high-quality paints and primers from Bosnia and Herzegovina paint company BAUklar. The injection moulded SuperOval pail feature close-up drawings of tigers with striking details and appeal that form the essential visual communication of the pack. In-Mould Labelling (IML) makes it possible to reproduce even the finest details of the tiger design, so that end- users can almost feel that they can touch the whiskers.

Spoon-in-lid solution for dairy products

An innovative spoon-in-the-lid from RPC Superfos for its popular 75mm container is guaranteed to make yogurts, desserts and other dairy products stand out from the crowd. The new solution is perfect for consumers who eat on-the-go, with the foldable polypropylene spoon simple to access, assemble and use. The APET lid features a fine PET seal that is easy to tear off. As such, it represents a significant improvement over similar lids which are sealed with aluminium foil, and thus oblige the user to find the spoon with which to eat the product.
