RPC Superfos has provided its SuperLift plastic pail for German meat producer Metten Fleischwaren’s bulk-pack sausages.
RPC bucket’s in-mould labelling oxygen barrier protection feature will allow to extend the shelf-life of the product.
The company has provided 4.6 litre injection-moulded SuperLift polypropylene pail with 226mm diameter for German meat producer to be used for five types of sausages marketed in bulk consumer packs.
The packages also comprised Germany’s well known veal-based bockwurst, Dicke Sauerländer.
RPC’s plastic pail includes barrier label, which provides products with nine-month shelf-life at ambient temperatures.
Metten Fleischwaren markets its bulk pack sausages to meat wholesalers, canteens and the foodservice industry.
Metten Fleischwaren CEO Tobias Metten said: “RPC Superfos came out top as an innovative supplier of plastic packaging. Today, we are unambiguously pleased with our cooperation with RPC Superfos – one of the very few plastic packaging suppliers mastering oxygen barrier protection with In-Mould Labelling.
“The pails look brilliant after autoclaving and, importantly, they not only safeguard the great taste of our sausages – our sausages still make the right cracking sound when you bite into them.”
In November this year, RPC Superfos has launched a new spoon-in-the-lid solution for yogurts, desserts and other dairy products.
The solution has been designed for RPC’s 75mm container which is ideal for consumers who eat on-the-go.
Featuring foldable polypropylene spoon for easy access, assemble and use, the APET lid comprises a fine PET seal, allowing customers to easily tear it off.
RPC Superfos provides advanced packaging solutions for a variety of food and non-food applications.
