RPC Superfos has developed a customised packaging solution for Orkla Foods Norway's top-selling chocolate spread Nugatti, which combines a new clear brand display with valuable cost savings.

The improved design of the injection moulded polypropylene pot from RPC Superfos, which marks the launch of three new varieties of the spread with hazelnut bites, is produced in two sizes – a 500g pack, as before, and a new 350g version. This smaller size offers stronger consumer appeal and there is every indication that the packaging will contribute to increased sales. Both packs feature high-impact Nugatti branding with coloured backgrounds to distinguish the different varieties in the range.

"Though our brand has been the consumer's preferred choice for decades we know that we must constantly develop and renew our products to earn customer loyalty," comments Jan Sævareid, Purchasing Director at Orkla Foods Norway. "That is why we present new varieties every year and work on improving our packaging solutions."

The new customised solution also has a logistic advantage and valuable cost benefit, as both pots share the same size lid.

"As purchasing director, I find it particularly excellent that we can reduce the number of packaging pieces from four to three: Two bodies and one lid instead of two bodies and two lids. This change has lowered our costs," Jan Sævareid explains.

Orkla Foods is highly satisfied with the creative level and the project management from RPC Superfos. The customised solution moved from concept to delivery in less than six months.

"Speed-to-market is of the essence and RPC Superfos has reached all important milestones according to plan. Moreover, the pair of new pots in two sizes looks fabulous on shelf," Jan Sævareid says and concludes: "Running this customised packaging project with RPC Superfos has been an immensely good experience. They have offered competitive pricing, demonstrated strong execution skills and delivered high quality packaging products."

Orkla Foods Norway is the leading supplier of branded consumer goods in the Nordics and the Baltics. Nugatti ranks as the unbeaten No. 1 chocolate spread in Norway.

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.
