Nicholl makes sustainable addition to range

17 March 2011

Nicholl Food Packaging has partnered Stora Enso in the launch of the company’s DeLight Solution in the UK and Ireland, for which Nicholl will now become a major distributor in these territories

DeLight is a new ovenable paperboard tray, accompanied with polymer coating and injection moulded rim, which ensures a gas tight lid seal suitable for MAP applications for processed foods. The strength and performance of the tray means it may not require a carton or sleeve, and it has the option of full colour printing to enhance consumer appeal.

DeLight combines high quality, premium product presentation with a strikingly different appearance, and provides a sustainable solution that matches the environmental concerns of today’s consumers.

The tray’s hybrid construction offers a number of advantages including a largely renewable material content. Wood material is sourced from traceable and responsibly managed forests, while the high share of bio-energy used in the production of paperboard makes it possible to show a low carbon footprint for DeLight Solution (Life Cycle Analysis available on request).

At the same time, DeLight offers food processors and retailers a range of options to create strong branding and deliver a high impact pack on shelf. The material’s flexibility means a wide variety of different customised shapes and colours can be created (subject to order quantity), in addition to familiar, standard designs.

The tray can be varnished or externally coated and printed in up to five colours. Also offered as an accessory for food and non-food applications is the suggestion of a colourfully printed reclosable board lid, which can include cut/punched window options.

The design brief for this product was to bring ‘bag in box’ wine into the 21st century. In order to do so, it was decided that wine in a box had to become ‘fashionable’. With the knowledge that 8 out of every 10 bottles of wine bought to drink at home are bought by women plus the knowledge that handbags are at the top of a woman’s most wanted list, the Vernissage Wine Handbag was, without doubt, the most obvious fashion choice.Full Story...
