RPC Superfos has supplied the container for a Halloween trick-or- treat bucket. Danish candy and confectionary producer Carletti chose the UniPak container for its attractive design and usefulness for later storage.

Decorated in vivid orange, the 2.3 litre injection moulded polypropylene trick-or- treat bucket features a black handle and a transparent lid that allows shoppers to see the ‘Big Ben’ toffees inside. Besides grown-ups expecting visits from ghosts and witches, it can also be used, once empty, by children for more trick-or- treating or storage of sweets and toys.

“Retailers appreciate strongly coloured and attractive goods at their points of sale for Halloween,” explains Bonna Clausen, Product Manager at Carletti. “Therefore, we opted for UniPak, and are very happy with it.

“The bucket looks cute, and clearly displays our company name and one of our most important trademarks. We trust that many customers will re-use the bucket for storage, and through this, they will bear us and our products in mind for longer.”

The project went smoothly despite a tight schedule to finish in time for Halloween. During development, the Carletti sales team presented samples of the bucket to numerous retailers, and – in an encouraging sign in a country that has only recently embraced Halloween – soon needed to create more.

“RPC Superfos quickly supplied us with extra samples, and paid much attention to meeting our needs in general,” finishes Bonna. “We are also absolutely satisfied with the product quality. We have experienced a flawless project, and we find that it is easy to communicate with RPC Superfos.”

Carletti produces high quality candy and chocolate and has an annual turnover of approximately €53 million.

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.
