RPC container sets the right image

  • Superfos, a Berry Global company

A 16 litre SuperLift container from RPC Containers Oakham, featuring a striking new design and the use of recycled material, is helping Colas Ltd both convey its premium image and underline the company's commitment to sustainability.

Colas provides sustainable solutions for the design, building and maintenance of the UK's transport infrastructure. Its Bitukold reinstatement product is used for the sealing of new vertical joints in freshly laid asphalt or macadam.

Bitukold is arguably one of the market leaders and Colas required a packaging solution that would emphasise this distinction and create the right image and positioning in the market. At the same time, sustainability is a major part of all Colas offerings, and it was therefore important that the packaging supported this position.

RPC Oakham's SuperLift container is injection moulded in polypropylene, including 25% recycled material. The inclusion of the recycled content produces a grey finish which in itself creates on-shelf distinction and this is further enhanced by the use of metallic inks that ensure an attractive, eye-catching look. The plastic handle makes the entire pack mono material.

The re-sealable SuperLift container is also lightweight, easy to handle, waterproof and does not dent easily, all essential practical advantages for a product used outdoors.

"Bitukold is a quality product and it was important that this was reflected in its packaging", explains Arthur Millington of Colas Ltd.

"The combination of a high-impact design and recycled material, along with the proven practical benefits of the SuperLift range, ideally demonstrate our rofessionalism and leadership."

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.
