The SuperLift® container from Superfos, a Berry Global company, is providing a UK confectionery company with a striking and tamper-evident packaging solution.

Tangerine Confectionery was looking for a high-quality, colourful, and creative pack to re-launch its Barratt seasonal range of the UK’s favourite sweets.  The vivid colours of the SuperLift® tubs, made of widely recyclable polypropylene, provide strong shelf standout and have generated fantastic in-store backing with feature space and promotional support, which has led to an increase in demand for the sweets.

According to Russell Tanner, Marketing Manager and Category Management Director at Tangerine Confectionery, consumers love the sweets and the quality of the new tub.

“The great finish of the tub helps to display the vibrant fun side of our brand,” Tanner says. “We have seen a really strong sales performance. Last year’s sales have been clearly positive and, with a move to the Superfos tub, we have gained additional distribution in the market.”

The use of in-mould labelling for the decoration allows plenty of creativity and Superfos worked with Tangerine Confectionery to help achieve a visually-appealing pack.  For the main artwork design sign-off, Tangerine arranged a joint session for its design agency and Superfos, enabling amendments to be made and sign-off to take place on the same day.

The re-launched Barratt sweets are being sold in the UK and Australia in 750g tubs with a popular Retros variety available in a slightly smaller 630g version.

“Previously with other seasonal packaging options, we have seen a few problems with tamper-evidence,” explains Russell Tanner.  “Now with the solution from Superfos, there are no more complaints in this area.

“The SuperLift® solution is a great match to our brand; a premium product,” Tanner concludes. “It has a very strong shelf standout and makes a perfect gift of sweets to yourself or someone else. This was something we wanted to push with the new tub, and we have been absolutely successful with it.”

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.
