Pot helps baby food's new kid on the block

  • Superfos, a Berry Global company

The convenience and barrier properties of RPC Superfos’s injection moulded SuperLock polypropylene pot have proved the ideal solution for a new range of readymade organic baby foods now on shelf in major supermarkets in Sweden.

Lovemade is the brainchild of Silvia Wulff, a Danish entrepreneur and mother of two. The eight varieties in the range are locally produced, which is unique in this category, and her team includes two Danish celebrity chefs, vouching for the high-quality ingredients, high level taste and texture.

Silvia Wulff opted for the SuperLock packaging solution, holding 215ml of product with a 95mm diameter lid, which she considers to be part of the success. From her own experience, she knows how irritating it can be to feed a baby if the food container is too narrow:

“In terms of giving parents an ease-of-use experience the diameter is important,” she explains. “The SuperLock pot is the right size, making it easy to stir, get a spoon in and the baby food out. Add to this the click-on screw-off lid makes it hassle-free to open and reclose the pot.” 

The barrier labels of the SuperLock pot provide a long shelf life, enabling the products to be placed in retail stores under ambient temperatures alongside competing products sold in glass. While the market for baby food is generally dominated by glass packaging, Silvia Wulff believes her pack solution has all the properties she requires:

“Plastic has low weight which means reduced transportation costs and reduced environmental impact. I also appreciate the fact that SuperLock® is suitable for autoclaving, so we can ensure suitable shelf life and at the same time deliver pure and natural products, avoiding the need for additives or preservatives. In addition, the pot can be re-used at home multiple times, which adds value to our product.”

The eye-catching artwork design of the labels adds to Lovemade’s on-shelf appeal, while the base of the pack is transparent, making it possible to see the contents at the time of purchase, enabling the packaging to communicate authenticity, freshness and a healthy nutritious product.

As Silvia Wulff concludes: “Our goal is to sell a product that fully takes baby food to a higher level: organic, high-quality ingredients that are cooked following gourmet recipes, served in a safe and user-friendly pack of low weight that can be used over and over again at home.”

Silvia Wulff cooperates with the leading supplier of branded consumer goods in the Nordics, Orkla Foods Sweden.

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.
