A PS (Protective Shoulder) container from RPC Containers Oakham has been selected for the relaunch of supermarket giant Spar's 2.5L popcorn tubs.

The high-quality decorative options presented by RPC Oakham's in-mould labelling capabilities were among the wow factors for manufacturer Big Bear Confectionery, one of the UK's leading independent confectionery manufacturers.

In addition to helping ensure a standout presence on shelf, the white tubs - injection-moulded in PP - also come with tamper evidence as standard. A fitted handle is attached to the strengthening collar for added consumer convenience.

Mark Seddon, general sales manager of RPC Oakham, confirms:

"We are continuing to see a growth in the use of IML for confectionery because of the advantages it presents – eliminating the need for a secondary decoration process and reducing both scrappage rates and work-in-process.

It also delivers a more eye-catching design than a simple printed label."

Big Bear Confectionery has been manufacturing quality confectionery in the UK for more than 100 years. The company’s products are enjoyed across the globe and can be found in most retail and wholesale channels.

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.

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.
