A new branding for leading foodservice supplier Piquant has also underlined the company's long-standing successful partnership with RPC.

RPC Superfos supplies its market-leading injection moulded polypropylene E and PS Range pails in 10 litre and 5 litre sizes for Piquant's range of mayonnaise and marinades, while RPC Promens Consumer Corby's 2.35kg multilayer blow moulded Bear jar is used for the company's salad dressings.

All are now in the process of taking Piquant's new packaging design. Developed by CLIP, the new labels project a more modern and contemporary image while retaining Piquant's familiar oval green logo.

"The team at CLIP has done a fantastic job fulfilling our design requirements while retaining the heritage of our brand", comments Piquant's sales director Mike Hooker. "We are experts in the production of sauces and marinades and we wanted our brand to reflect our knowledge of the industry."

The RPC packs offer the combination of strength and robustness at light weights, easy handling and resistance to denting and shattering, all important benefits in the busy foodservice environment.

"RPC has been our supplier of choice for many years and the quality, functionality and convenience of their pails and jars are ideal for our customers, while their service and support have been exemplary", continues Mike Hooker. "The new designs have given our packaging a new dimension and we have received some fantastic feedback from existing customers and new clients on our distinctive label design."

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.
