RPC Superfos’s CombiPac® tub is being used to pack a new range from the UK’s favourite butter and spreadable brand. The line extension for Lurpak Spreadables offers tasty new infusions, but the pack retains the well-known silver shine from the parent brand.

Packaging plays a major role in distinguishing a brand on shelf and at home, with colour an inherent part of this. For this reason, Arla Foods UK wanted to keep the silver base in the packaging for its new Lurpak Spreadables Infusions.

“Globally, the silver colour is recognised as a characteristic for Lurpak butter, so there was no doubt in our minds: the new pack for the new spreadable butter variants must match our existing packaging for Lurpak butter and spreadable butter,” explains Daniel Morales-Gonzalez, Senior Global Brand Manager at Lurpak, Arla Foods.

Ideal for butter, yellow fats and dairy products, the CombiPac® tub offers a unique combination of plastic and cardboard. The outer part is made of cardboard, providing light barrier protection and ensuring a lightweight pack. The inner part consists of a thermoformed plastic sheet, protecting the edible content and making the pack grease resistant.

To meet the precise needs of Arla Foods, the regular pack was slightly adapted so that both the lid and tub are thermoformed and the size made slightly smaller, so that it is perfect for picnics.

“We offer our consumers a new taste experience, all the while making the connection to our iconic Lurpak brand through the silver shine. The CombiPac® packaging solution from RPC Superfos gives us a positive stand out on-shelf,” concludes Daniel Morales-Gonzalez.

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.

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.
