RPC's containers maximize appeal in the B2B sector

  • Superfos, a Berry Global company

RPC Superfos' beautifully decorated SuperLift containers are playing a key role in the branding strategy of Italian manufacturer Elenka, which produces and sells products for making ice cream and pastry.

Based on the island of Sicily, this highly reputed family owned company sells its range of ingredients throughout Europe, the Middle East, America and Australia. Ice cream parlours and bakeries mix the fluid or the powder from Elenka with sugar and cream to serve original Italian pastry and ice cream to their customers.

While bulk pack sizes and efficient logistics are cornerstones in the B2B trade, artwork design also has a positive impact on purchase managers. The eye-catching artwork for the SuperLift containers was developed by Elenka's in-house marketing and design manager, Rocco Niro, who underlines that in any sales process, you have to grab the attention of customers, whether the segment is B2B or B2C.  

"We know that the common assumption is that professional purchasers pay less attention to artwork and design of the packaging than the average consumer. However, we consider our B2B customers more or less like consumers. Even though they act and make decisions in their professional capacity as purchasers, they clearly respond to appealing design in a positive way. This is why first class artwork and visual design are vital parts of our branding strategy", he explains.

Therefore, while the SuperLift containers hold the ingredients for making ice cream and pastry, simply by looking at the packaging you get the idea of the mouth-watering, ready-to-serve sweet treats with hazelnut, cocoa and vanilla that these can produce. The containers are injection moulded in polypropylene in matching colours - white, black and brown - and decorated with high quality In-Mould Labelling images.

Elenka uses the SuperLift container in two sizes – 3.1 litres and 11.3 litres with plastic handles. The pack is very functional and confirms correct re-closure with an audible click. SuperLift has a round conical shape and the handle on the collar leaves lots of space for sleek and exclusive art work.

Rocco Niro explains why he likes the SuperLift solution:

"The SuperLift container is one of the most beautiful containers in its category. It is highly functional and decoration friendly, offering a big space for the visual communication. Actually, it has much resemblance with the type of packaging you would find in a supermarket."

Design, artwork and superb photographs reflect the way Elenka does business, which is based on passion, innovation and quality.

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.
