A Swedish dairy producer is using the SuperLight™ pot from RPC Superfos to pack its new range of Quark. Skånemejerierne chose the thermoformed polypropylene container for its Lindahls Kvark brand after deciding to stop importing from Germany and produce and pack the product in-house.

The 500g SuperLight™ is decorated by offset printing in six colours, and features different artwork for each of the 25 flavours in the range, which include vanilla, coconut and strawberry, as well as other varieties such as low-carb lactose-free raspberry.

After swapping to their own filling line, Skånemejerierne’s Quark production has become more cost-efficient with the intention of further strengthening its market position in Sweden and other European countries. Importantly for the company, the change of packaging has gone unnoticed by end-users.

“The aim of the entire project was to maintain the same packaging standard as before, with only ourselves noticing the changes," explains Thore Bengtsson, Purchaser at Skånemejerierne.

"We asked RPC Superfos to deliver the same type of pack as the one we used to import, and we got what we asked for, even within a very tight time schedule. We’ve had superb cooperation with RPC Superfos, who have given us the right product quality, service and support on time and according to plan.”

Full of healthy proteins, Quark is very popular among fitness fans and athletes.

Project helps prevent food waste at home

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.
