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.

“We have created a lid with a two-piece spoon which matches the widespread and popular small diameter typically used for a pot of yoghurt or a chocolate mousse,” explains Rikke Justenborg, Product Portfolio Manager at RPC Superfos Stilling. “In fact, it is a new option from RPC Superfos.”

Due to the intuitive nature of the seal, there is no need for instructions, meaning it can be fully exploited for branding messages with a choice of six colours.

In addition, the lid can be specified in any transparent colour, giving customers a wide range of design possibilities where the pot, lid and seal complement each other to create an attractive presence for maximum on-shelf impact.

As well as providing a good-looking alternative to more conventional pots, the lid height of the container has been kept to an absolute minimum, creating logistical benefits and reducing the amount of virgin material. The pot stacks well both filled and empty, and is also available with a diameter of 95mm.

A further option is a combined solution that features both the spoon and topping in the lid – ideal for muesli, for example. This ensures a high level of hygiene, with the spoon kept separate from the topping.

“We are introducing this spoon-in-the-lid solution so that our customers have the potential to make their products stand out in refrigerated display counters,” concludes Rikke. “And, as we all know, getting attention is step one for increased sales.”

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.
