Verstraete provides IML packaging labels for Valio’s lactose-free dessert container

Verstraete has provided in mould (IML) packaging labels to the container developed for Valio Eila lactose-free dessert.

RPC Superfos has developed the injection moulded packaging container for Finnish dairy producer Valio’s lactose-free panna cotta.

The new injection moulded packaging solution includes a convenient click and push feature at the bottom.

The container enables consumer to deliver ready-to-eat decorative in three steps.

First, the sealed foil on top need to be removed and then turn the pot upside-down and push the bottom for the dessert to be released.

The packaging breaks will open in three spots and the pudding and fruit sauce gently slide out of the 150ml container, said the company.

Valio packaging development manager Juhana Pilkama said: “Our design brief for the package specified that the pot container should be of premium quality, look great and offer outstanding user convenience.

“According to our market analysis consumers crave for products that offer easy indulgence with a touch of luxury. We turned to RPC Superfos for a new customised packaging solution, as we have excellent past experience with them.”

RPC Superfos construction manager Johan Rosell said: “The IML supplier has been supportive and helpful throughout this challenging, yet exciting, project. The greatest technical challenge was the release mechanism.”
