A new, narrower jar which loses none of the on-shelf impact of its larger predecessor has been created for Tangerine Confectionery by RPC Containers Blackburn.

The injection-moulded 3.6L PET jar, made in a custom mould, is the same height as a 4L version, meaning it carries the same on-shelf presence. 

The UK's leading sugar confectionery manufacturer has switched its Taveners traditional sweet shop range and Jameson's high quality chocolate covered confectionery to the new, classic-style container, which has been specifically developed for Tangerine's cash and carry customers.

Its glass clear appearance highlights the colourful, high-quality product within, and the wide neck for easy dispensing uses a 105mm black cap supplied by RPC Halstead.

Speaking about the new packaging, Sarah Brown, senior brand manager at Tangerine Confectionery, said:

"We've been really impressed with the response from the RPC team following our brief for the new jars. The new, bespoke jars feature a more traditional style, which we think will really appeal to the wholesale market, while also offering retailers great value for money. We've worked with RPC on a number of projects now and look forward to working with the team in the future to develop further new packaging solutions for our products."

RPC was asked to create the new pack as a result of its long term supplier relationship with Tangerine Confectionery in Pontefract, Yorkshire.

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.
